Affidavit of Residency

There are two circumstances when a student would need an Affidavit of Residency to register for enrollment in the Brookhaven School District. 1) The student lives full time with the parent in a residence not owned or leased by the parent. 2) The student lives full time with an adult that is not the parent because of an extreme circumstance.

Any legal guardianship formed for the purpose of establishing residence for School District attendance purposes shall not be recognized by the Brookhaven School District. (MS Code §37-15-31)

All affidavits of residency must be approved by district administration prior to registering a student in the Brookhaven School District.

Custodial parent(s) or legal guardian(s) residing with an adult in a home not owned or rented by the custodial parent(s) or legal guardian(s) will present documents to show legal custody. The homeowner or leaseholder must verify residency through the same process outlined above and provide a notarized affidavit of residency. The custodial parent(s) must provide one current document with their name and address matching the homeowner's or leaseholder's address from Group II listed above.

Affidavits of Residency may be picked up at Brookhaven School District Central Office. Those seeking approval of a notarized affidavit should attend the One-Stop-Shop or call (601) 833-6661 to make an appointment with school district administration.
