D.C. School Residency Fraud: Attorney General Seeks More Than $800,000 From Government Workers

The D.C. attorney general’s office has filed lawsuits seeking more than $800,000 from four parents — including three who work for the District government — alleging they fraudulently enrolled their children in the city’s public schools while living in Maryland.

The complaints, filed Tuesday in D.C. Superior Court, are against a public charter schoolteacher and two employees of the D.C. police department. They come amid growing scrutiny of families who falsely claim they live in the District so that their children can attend the city’s public schools without paying the tuition required of nonresidents.
