Enrollment for Students in Shared Housing

Shared Housing

When a family is living in an informal housing arrangement, such as with a relative or friend, or when the parent/guardian of the student cannot provide the proof of address documents in their name as legally required to enroll their student, then a Shared Housing form is alternate way to provide proof of address for enrollment in a Eugene School District 4J school.
