Colfax Boundary Map

Colfax Charter is a highly desired neighborhood school.  We believe all children should have a quality education, but our responsibility is to serve all of the students living within the Colfax boundaries set by the District.  

Please see Colfax Boundary Map or Search your address to see if your address falls within the new boundaries.

If you do not live within the District defined boundaries, your child will not be able to attend Colfax. If a question about your address arises, we have the responsibility to check.  This may be done by requesting additional utility bills, calling managers, or by visiting the address you have listed.  Please do not provide a false address when registering.  If we find out that you have done so, we are required to transfer your child out immediately.  This would be very difficult for your child.  Please do not put your child in this position because you falsified your address.

Address Verification

At this time, we are unable to accept students who do not live within our attendance boundaries.   If a question about your address arises, we have the responsibility to check.  This may be done by requesting additional utility bills, calling building managers, or by visiting the address you have listed.  Please do not provide a false address when registering.  If we find out that you have done so, we are required to transfer your child out immediately.  This will be very difficult for your child, please do not put your child in this position because you falsified your address.

 

In order to protect the rights of students who currently reside in the Colfax Charter boundaries, the office diligently verifies the address information of all incoming and currently enrolled students.

 

Here are some of the ways that we verify residency:

 

Utility Bills- We require two months of utility bills at the time of enrollment.

Closing Escrow Statement- If you are purchasing a home during enrollment you will be required to provide a copy of your closing escrow statement.  You will not be able to enroll until you occupy the dwelling you have purchased.

Lexis Nexis- All addresses will be verified using the research engine Lexis Nexis.  We use the research information to determine if a family is currently residing within the Colfax boundaries. The office staff will visit the home determined to be the "probable address" listed in Lexis Nexis. 

Home Visits- At times it is also necessary to conduct home visits. As part of the home visit we will interview neighbors, ask students to show us their room, belongings, and how long they have lived in the home.

 

If you falsify records at any time during enrollment you will immediately be asked to attend your home school. Falsification of documents will bar you from enrolling at Colfax Charter for one calendar year following the falsification.
