All but three of 4,790 Greenwich students have been verified as town residents entitled to attend Greenwich Public Schools.
According to information released by the school district, as of Thursday, Oct. 17, there were two families with a total of three elementary students at Hamilton Avenue School who have not provided proof of residence in town. Letters were sent home to the families on Oct. 17, notifying them their children will be withdrawn from school Nov. 1.
The district began an expanded student residency verification process in June, requiring parents and legal guardians of all students in kindergarten through fifth grades and ninth-grade, to prove they were eligible to attend classes to address public concerns that out-of-town students were attending Greenwich schools.
Also, the three unverified students have siblings in grades that were not required to go through the residency verification process and notices were sent informing the families that the siblings will be withdrawn from school on Nov. 1, according to the district. The number of siblings involved or the schools they attend weren't identified in the school district's statement.
The three Hamilton Avenue students who remain unverified represent .9 percent of the school population of 334 students.
According to the district, with the verification program completed, the district has asked for an audit of the program to be conducted by the town's internal auditor. That's expected to be completed in three months.
