Board Rule 4.6(a) requires persons hired or promoted to full-time positions on or after July 1, 1977 to be residents of the City of Chicago ("City"). A certificate of residence within the City shall be required as part of the employment application process for all new full-time hires. Continued residence within the City and an Annual Certification of Residency conducted by the Office of the Inspector General shall be a condition of continued employment for full-time employees subject to this Rule. A nonresident of the City may be hired or promoted to a full-time position provided that such person agrees, as a condition of employment/promotion, to establish actual residency within six(6) months after commencement of employment/promotion.
The Chancellor may extend the time during which a non-resident new hire or promoted employee may establish residency in the City for up to two(2) additional three-month periods, if warranted by individual circumstances of the employee and if the Chancellor determines that it is in the best interests of the District to do so.
Following the two extensions, the Chancellor may also grant up to two(2) additional three-month periods when a non-resident new hire or promoted employee is able to show a good faith effort toward selling his/her existing primary residence located outside the City in order to meet the residency requirement. Listed below includes, but is not limited to, items required as proof of 'good faith effort':
- Provide a sales contract within the first six(6) months of hire/promotion which identifies the address of the property for sale, the broker, and the period of time the contract covers.
- Provide proof that the property in question is listed on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service).
- If the property is being sold by the owner, all advertisements showing property is being advertised and the responses received from those advertisements.

Employees wishing to request an extension provided for in this Rule must submit their request prior to the expiration date of the six(6) month period or prior to the expiration of any previously approved extension.
