Public Law 13-2006 (Senate Enrolled Act No. 39) added IC 20-26-11-2.5 to the Indiana Code, creating an election for parents who are divorced or separated but live in different school corporations.
The parent with physical custody (or the student, if the student is 18 years of age or older) can elect for the student to have legal settlement in the school corporation where the mother lives or the school corporation where the father lives—but the election must be made not later than fourteen (14) days before the first student day of the school year.
All that is required is for the parents to complete a special form at school registration.
