Out-of-Parish Student Guidance

NOLA Public Schools Out-of-Parish Student Guidance

Except at Type 2 Charters, all students of NOLA public schools must be residents of Orleans Parish.

To ensure compliance with this requirement, schools must take the following actions:

  • During registration, collect two or more Orleans parish residency documents1
  • On an ongoing basis, monitor new registrations and your rosters for out-of-parish addresses.
  • Inform all families who do not establish Orleans Parish residency and not eligible for McKinney-Vento protections that they will be discharged.
  • If a family confirms residency in another parish, discharge the student in SchoolForce with the following note:
    • OSE9: Failed to verify residency in Orleans Parish
  • If a family continues to come to school, contact NOLA Public Schools for support



1These documents may be used to prove residency:

  • Current Lease/Mortgage Statement
  • Electricity/Gas Bill
  • Sewerage/Water Bill
  • Cable/Internet Bill
  • Section 8 or HANO Voucher Statement
  • Recent letter from a government agency
