MCCOMB, Miss. (AP) - North Pike School District trustees are giving students suspected of living out of district three chances to prove residency, and the district has hired a firm to help crack down on residency verifications.

The Enterprise-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1Oj6mlL) the trustees approved an agreement with Southwest Security Co. for residency verifications.

Superintendent Dennis Penton said North Pike has 180 affidavits regarding students’ residency that need to be verified, but the district lacks a resource officer.

He said the projected cost of hiring someone to do this is about $16 per hour plus mileage.

Families waiting on verification will have three chances to prove that the student who is supposed to live within school limits lives there before the student will be removed from the district.
