Verification of Residency. We are continuing our commitment to ensure that all Healdsburg Unified students live in Healdsburg. As local property taxes fund our school district, our policies are guided by a shared belief that local property taxes are designated for supporting the education of children who live within our attendance area. As a result, we are working on verifying that residency information that parents and guardians have provided us is indeed accurate and up-to-date. In the next few months, we will be verifying residences of families who had signed an affidavit assuring us that they live in Healdsburg. The consequence for having falsified information is dis-enrollment for the students. We are sorry for the impact of this consequence on students.
