• New Student RegistrationCJHS


    Welcome to Unit 5!

    Families who are new to the district should call the McLean Unit #5 office at (309) 557-4400 to confirm that your address is in the Chiddix Junior High School boundaries.   Once you have determined that CJHS is the correct middle school the following needs to be complete and/or obtained before you can register your child.
    1. Proof of residency - Families are required to submit 3 forms of proof of residency prior to registration.  The Verification of Residency form (in the registration packet) clearly lists acceptable forms of documentation.

    2.  Copy of certified birth certificate - A hospital birth certificate is not acceptable.  Illinios state law requires that we have a certified copy of your child's birth certificate on file.

    3. Proof of legal guardianship - If a student is not living with both natural parents, proof a the legal custodial arrangement is necessary.

    7.
