District 97 hosting final school registration tonight

In an effort to accommodate families that have not yet been able to register for the 2016-2017 academic year, Oak Park School District 97 will be hosting a last-minute registration session tonight, Aug. 25, from 6-8 p.m. at the administration center, 970 Madison Street, Oak Park.

“We are hosting this special evening session in an effort to provide families that still need to register their children for the 2016-17 school year with an additional opportunity to complete the process prior to the first day of school on Mon., Aug. 29,” OP97 writes on its website.

Families new to the community are being asked to register online ahead of tonight’s meeting at OP97.org/NewStudents.

Returning families with outdated licenses are not required to schedule an appointment online ahead of tonight’s meeting. However, these families are asked to bring an updated lease with two documents showing proof of a current Oak Park address. For example, the district will accept bills, voter registration cards, or bank statements as official proof of current residence.

For more information, contact District 97 at 708-524-3000 or d97registrar@op97.org.
