STRATFORD, Conn. -- The Stratford Board of Education will hold hearings Thursday to determine the residency of more than 60 students, according to the Stratford Star.

Families will be able to present documents between 5 and 7 p.m. to prove they are town residents, and the hearings will be held after that, according to the Stratford Star.

School officials told the Stratford Star that 63 families with fifth-graders have not provided proof of residency, and that letters were sent out in August notifying them that they need to do so. Those who do not provide proof could face the possibility of expulsion, according to the Stratford Star.

The Board of Education began seeking verification of student residency after learning that there are children attending schools who are not residents of Stratford, the Stratford Star reported. The district then began asking for proof of residency from families with fifth-graders, according to the Stratford Star.
