NT: Residency dispute forces child to be pulled from school


Holesko was too busy to comment, he said. Vecchiarella did not return any messages.

School board president Scott Schultz has talked to Stone, he said. The issue of school residency usually only comes up when dealing with athletes. Schultz offered for an attorney to visit Stone’s home to verify the address, but Stone hung up on him, he said.

Stone is still waiting for the attorney to arrive and verify her residency, she said.

The issue is bureaucratic, but it shouldn’t be so hard to deal with, Schultz said.

“If you’re a resident of the district, you get to go to school here,” he said.

Schultz has not yet spoken to the district about the issue, he said.

Stone should soon have tax forms that she can turn in to prove her residency, Schultz said.

“I’m really trying here and I don’t know what else to do,” he said. “She’s upset.”

Part of the problem is that members of the district aren’t talking to one another, Stone said. Though Stone is fed up with the whole ordeal, there’s only one thing she wants.

“My kid needs to go back to school,” she said. “That’s all I’m looking for.”
