H-F High School’s board stands by policies on residency

Each semester students are removed from Homewood-Flossmoor High School as the school board continues enforcement of policies to weed out students who aren’t legal residents.

The district does a full investigation each time a parent, student or community member brings an issue of residency to the administration. In November the board agreed to remove three students who were found to not be in compliance.

The Residency Verification Program has been in place for nearly 25 years. The district employs two investigators to check on whether a student is actually living at the address . . .
