The resident district is the school district in which the student resides when:
(1) the parent has legal guardianship but the
location of the parent is unknown; or
(2) an individual guardian has been appointed but the
location of the guardian is unknown; or
(3) the student is 18 years of age or older and no
legal guardian has been appointed; or
(4) the student is legally an emancipated minor; or

In cases where an Illinois public agency has legal guardianship and has
placed the student residentially outside of Illinois, the last school
district that provided at least 45 days of educational service to the
student shall continue to be the district of
residence until the student is no longer under guardianship of an Illinois
public agency or until the student is returned to Illinois.
