Tonawanda News, North Tonawanda, New York, 6 April 2007, Residency dispute forces child to be pulled from school
Stone and her daughter, Samantha, moved from Kiel Street to Sommer Street, a move that’s practically around the block. She sent the district her new address and thought everything was taken care of for her fourth-grade daughter.
The move happened on Feb. 1. Almost two months passed, and the district sent Stone a letter stating she needed proof of residency, she said. …
She sent in mail delivered to her new home, pay stubs and a television bill, but it was not enough, she said.
And so, Stone pulled her daughter out of Gilmore Elementary School. Samantha Stone has now been out of school for two weeks, and with a solution nowhere insight, Gail Stone decided to home school her.
But the district wouldn’t let her do that, either, she said.
“I’m frustrated and angry,” Stone said. “I don’t know what they want from me. They know where I live. They’re sending me mail.”
