My mom just gave temporary guardianship or custody or something to my grandparents because they were in district. When the school year was up, everything went back lol.

Re: Would you consider renting...

I wouldn't, I do think it's unethical. And extremely risky if the school finds out.

From the high horse of my only daughter's toddlerhood, I'd move to a hovel in a good school district - or commit to the district I'm in, and do what I could to benefit it/my kid, on the grounds that if it's not good enough for my child, it's not good enough for anybody's child.

Not sure if they will take you to court here, I can ask my mom, however they will kick your kid out fast. You have to live, not just have a place, in district here. Then again this is a highly sought after district. I would live in the nasty trailer parks to make sure my DD attends here if I have to. I live in really nice income based housing at the moment. By nasty trailer park I mean run down, if you stay to yourself your fine, and you can find clean bug free trailers. Late and loud parties frequently outside and just bad location to.

No I wouldn't. Xh and I live 2 miles apart in diff school districts. Since we have joint, they go to the school in his district but if we wanted them at the school over here, we'd use my address. But they spend 50-50 at each house so either place is their "primary residence"

Re: Would you consider renting...

We will be renting out our house in our small town, and moving into town to rent in the school boundary we want the kids to attend. I will probably be offered a teaching job there as well. When we bought this house 8 years ago we didn't have kids, it was supposed to be temporary, and the school district was alright. It's still ok, but due to budget cuts they are down to 4 day school weeks and big classes. Ds needs speech as well. I think it will be better for us to just move.

Re: Would you consider renting...

I would, if you are actually using the apartment for any reason. Have utilities on and everything. Heck you could even camp there once a week to make it more legit. Lots of people have two residences...kids from split families, people with a lot of money that like summer homes, etc. If you can pick the residence of the state you want to vote in, I don't see this as any different.

How is that possible in a roommate situation?

We also have to show 2 utility bills for kids to go to PS. My dd is in preschool at the local PS and I had to bring my water bill and power bill. They dont accept cable or phone bills. In the case of roomates etc there is a waiver that needs to be notarized and sworn in front of a notary. It is not easy to get around.

No. Do people do it, yes. It gets confusing when your child says they live in xyz but yet their records say lmnop.

When I had roommates we'd split utilities, so it is possible. We have to show 2 bills as well. If I remember right the choices are: utility bill (water or electric), cell, mortgage statement, lease, home phone/cable.

ETA: No, I wouldn't do it. If I'm going to go through the expense, I'd just live there.
