Cold and Flu Season is upon us
We are asking for our residents' assistance in an important matter. The Burlington Township School District continues to remain diligent by investigating and acting upon reports of residency fraud. We have been made aware of numerous cases of children who reside outside the community and illegally attend our schools. This equates to theft of services and taxpayer dollars.
When the District becomes aware of such situations, an investigation is conducted and the appropriate actions are taken, which may include removal of children from school, reporting the incident to the police, pressing disorderly persons charges, and taking action to collect tuition. Over the years we have removed many students for illegal residency, have pressed charges, and assessed tuition.
It is illegal for a Burlington Township resident to allow the use of his/her address or residence by someone who resides outside the District for the sole purpose of allowing non-resident children to attend our schools. The District reports such incidents to the proper authorities, and takes other punitive actions against offenders.
No member of the school community should overlook this type of theft of community resources. You are encouraged to report suspected incidents of residency fraud to the school principal or Superintendent of Schools. Reports can be made anonymously to the school offices or Superintendent's office at 609-387-3955, Option 6. When a report is made, the District conducts its own investigation. The name of the reporting individual is not necessary or shared with anyone.
Thank you in advance for your partnership in addressing this problem.
