Parent/Guardian of Grain Valley Schools Students,

All families must provide proof of residency and verify emergency contact information each year. With the instructions available on our website, you may prove residency and verify emergency contact information from home. Instructions for getting started are found:

On our new Grain Valley Schools app, under the RESIDENCY icon.

On our website under the FOR FAMILIES tab – select RESIDENCY VERIFICATION.

If parents/guardians prefer to prove residency in person or to have us help with the online process for verifying emergency contact information, representatives from all schools will be on hand at Grain Valley South Middle School on Tuesday July 24th from 11:00 am-7:00 pm. We will have several computers available for parent/guardian use to update the emergency contact information for their child.

Students become eligible to receive a class placement and/or a class schedule only after proof of residency is provided and emergency contact information is updated.

Residency can be verified with one of the following:

  1. Utility bill in the resident’s name may be sent via email or shown in person.
    • Spire natural gas bill, KCP&L electric bill, or water bill accepted.
      • Water bill must include portion with the resident’s address.
      • June or July statements only and no final or disconnect notices will be accepted.
  2. Rental lease agreement including names of occupants, date of agreement, landlord’s name, address, phone number, and signatures, must be shown in person and is not accepted online. Lease agreement must include the name of parent/guardian.

Instructions on how to complete the required steps are available on the Grain Valley Schools app or on the FOR FAMILIES tab under RESIDENCY VERIFICATION.

Please call my office at (816) 847-5006 x1 or email us at if you have any questions about the process for proving residency or updating emergency contact information on your child.
