According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the fraudulent student population in Long Island, NY schools is projected to increase by about 8-9% for the upcoming school year. Past statistics indicate a steady increase in the number of fraudulent students identified over the past three school years. Overall, illegal residency can have a major financial impact on school districts, and this impact can cost your district hundreds of thousands if not over $1 Million in loss of revenue.

TrueBlue Consulting can manage your residency investigations via traditional investigatory services or by providing a full time Residency Investigations Manager who will collaborate with your district’s Residency Coordinator.
