INCOMING FRESHMAN

Parent(s)/legal guardian(s) are required to register their new student by completing the D230 Registration Form. The D230 Registration Form is the process of gathering important information about our students and families including the birth certificate and custodial documents. At this time, families were notified by email if the D230 Registration Form was complete or incomplete. For those incoming families that have not completed the D230 Registration Form, please click here.

ANNUAL RESIDENCY VERIFICATION - ALL STUDENTS!

District 230 uses CLEAR, a third party program, that reviews public records and determines if a student’s residency is current to attend Stagg High School. At this time, families either received an email notification stating residency has been verified/ is complete or if additional documentation is required to prove residency. For those families in need of completing residency verification and have questions, please contact the Guidance Office at 708-974-7423.
