The following information is provided to assist you with registration of your child. Please read this information carefully.

 

New Jersey law, N.J.S.A. 18A:38-1 and N.J.A.C. 6A:22 requires that a free public education be provided to any student between the ages of 5 and 20 who is:

  • Living with a parent or guardian whose permanent home is located within the district or who is temporarily living in the district.

  • Living with a person, other than a parent or guardian, who resides in the district and who is supporting the student without compensation, as if the student were his or her own child because the parent cannot support the child due to family or economic hardship.

  • Living with a person, other than a parent or guardian, who resides in the district when the parent is a member of the New Jersey National Guard or reserve component of the U.S. Armed Forces and has been ordered to active military service in time of war or national emergency

  • The child of a parent or guardian who is homeless

  • Placed in the district by court order

  • Is the child of a parent or guardian who resided in the district prior to being called to active military duty in time of war or national emergency

  • Residing on federal property within the district.

 

The following may be used as proof of eligibility for enrollment in the district:

  • Property tax bills, deeds, contracts of sale, leases, mortgages, signed letters from landlords and other evidence of property ownership, tenancy or residency

  • Voter registrations, licenses, permits, financial account information, utility bills, delivery receipts, and other evidence of personal attachment to a particular location

  • Medical reports, social worker assessments, employment documents showing family or economic hardship or temporary residency

  • Affidavits, certificates or sworn statements pertaining to statutory criteria for school attendance

  • Documents pertaining to military status and assignment

  • Any record by a government agency

 

The totality of information and documentation you offer will be considered in evaluating an application, and, unless expressly required by law, the student will not be denied enrollment based on your inability to provide certain form(s) of documentation where other acceptable evidence is presented.

 

Please be aware that any initial determination of the student’s eligibility to attend school in this district is subject to more thorough review and subsequent re-evaluation, and that tuition may be assessed in the event that an initially admitted student is later found ineligible. If your student is found ineligible, now or later, you will be provided the reasons for our decision and instructions on how to appeal.
