***Extension of Expiration Dates on DC Department of Motor Vehicle Documents (DMV) As part of the District’s response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the United States, the DC Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has extended the expiration date for all documents expiring March 1 through April 28, including drivers licenses, identification cards, and vehicle registrations, until May 15, 2020.

*** OSSE has identified Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits distributed by the DC government as a valid supporting residency document for persons enrolling in a DC public school or public charter school. The inclusion of this benefit will help enrolling persons who might previously have submitted a pay stub as a valid supporting document but are currently unemployed and therefore unable to provide one. Because UI benefits are based on the location of employment and not where the recipient physically resides, use of UI benefits for residency verification must meet the following requirements to demonstrate DC residency:  The enrolling person must submit a Monetary Determination Letter issued by the District of Columbia Department of Employment Services;  The Monetary Determination Letter must have the name and address of the enrolling person as listed on the District of Columbia Residency Verification Form (DCRV);  The enrolling person must submit a paystub dated within 60 days preceding the Mail Date on the Monetary Determination Letter;  The Monetary Determination Letter must list the enrolling person as eligible for benefits;  The benefit receipt must be current at the time of review;  The paystub must contain the same name and address of the enrolling person as listed on the DCRV;  The paystub must show a withholding amount greater than zero of DC personal income tax for both the current tax year and the current pay period; and  The paystub must identify DC as the only state tax deduction – no other state identified on the paystub.
