ETS Residency Verification Program

​Our professionally dressed detectives come to your registration location each day during the registration process to screen new and questionable registrations as they register. Some people may not have the required documents such as utility bills and leases which tie the family to an address within the district's boundaries while some others just don't seem genuine. We do our best to approve them then and there by verifying information through review of their provided documents and corroboration through a digital footprint. If we are not comfortable with the information provided, the file is referred to our field investigators for a home visit to validate the residency or deny it if applicable. Current client districts are saving hundreds of thousands of dollars each school year by implementing the ETS Residency Verification Program.

Fiscal Responsibility:Our program is a great public relations tool when speaking to your tax base at public meetings. As a example, we denied 17 fraudulent registrations (assumes 1 child per household registration) through home visits, fact checking, human interviews, and surveillance validating that they did not live inside the school district’s boundaries. This particular school district’s cost per student is $10,000 per school year. So the district saved it’s taxpayers $170,000 by having ETS properly screen these new registration. Sometimes a household will have 3,4, or 5 children to register and that increases the financial impact of a fraudulent registration if it is allowed to go through without oversight.

We partner with you to develop a Background Screening Program that makes sense for your organization helping you to make well informed placement decisions, retain the most qualified candidates and mitigate the risks in selecting the wrong candidate or allowing an unfit volunteer or coach access to vulnerable children.
