Marquardt School District 15 requires that parents/guardians submit a Proof of Residency packet every school year. After proving residency, parents/guardians must also complete a Registration Packet for their child in order for him/her to start the school year on time. If you are a parent/guardian, please complete Residency & Registration by following the four steps below so that your child can start school on-time next year. 

Is your child new to Marquardt School District 15? In addition to Proof of Residency, new students will need to provide a certified copy of a birth certificate and if transferring from another school, an Illinois State Transfer form.

Once your Proof of Residency forms are accepted and approved, you will receive via mail a 2019-20 Registration Packet. Please complete forms and return them to your child's school as soon as possible. Families whose forms are received by April 30th, 2019 qualify for a school fee discount.

Note to Elementary Parents: Due to shifts in population, the District anticipates a greater need to alter placements of elementary students in order to keep balanced class sizes.  Because of this, it’s more important than ever to register early.  Placement in your home school will be on a 1st come 1st serve basis regardless of previous years placement.
