Waynesville students will need to show proof of residence


All new Waynesville R-VI students will need to provide proof of residence upon enrollment, starting Jan. 3, 2019, to comply with Missouri law.


Current students will need to show proof of residence prior to the start of the 2019-20 school year. Several options to submit proof of residence in advance for currently enrolled students are listed in the answer to question 6 below.


Frequently asked questions:

    1. Any one of the following is an acceptable proof of residency document:
      1. Property tax statement
      2. Utility bill/agreement
      3. Real estate contract

      5. Military housing contract

    1. The school district will honor a waivable time frame for military personnel with dependents who have not received or secured a permanent housing assignment within the school district.
