Sunset Motto

Respect and Responsibility


Beginning in February, 2015, the San Dieguito Union High School District will require residency verification for all continuing SDUHSD students and any new students enrolling for the 2015-16 school year.  This process is a legal requirement in California, and it helps our district ensure that all available resources are spent efficiently and effectively to the benefit of San Dieguito families.  Moreover, these additional steps will help provide a full and precise accounting of our student population as we review staffing for the coming year.  

All residency documentation must be submitted by March 25, 2015, to Victoria Long in the Administration Office.  Please plan to provide a copy of your SDG&E bill and another utility bill such as a water bill that is tied to the residence (or a rental/mortgage agreement or property tax bill).  There will also be two forms that need to be filled out; and these forms will be emailed to you in February. 

Email these forms and 2 proofs of residency to victoria.long@sduhsd.net, or send them to school with your student.

Thank you!
