Step 2: Register Online
Applications should only be completed by families who meet the residency requirements and are active residents in the Town of Brookline.
The online application for Kindergarten will be available beginning Tuesday, January 4, 2022. You can access the application at any time to begin reviewing and editing your student’s information. However, you cannot submit the online application, select an appointment time, and complete registration until after January 4. Applications should only be completed by families who meet the residency requirements.
The final step of the online application requires you to select an appointment time for your virtual meeting with the Office of Registration & Enrollment. Make sure you complete this step and make a note of the appointment date and time before exiting the application.
All incoming Kindergarten students entering the Public Schools of Brookline must select “Next School Year” as their appointment type in the application to request enrollment for September 2022.
Appointments will take place virtually beginning mid-January 2022. Please note that all families who complete registration during our first kindergarten enrollment period (January - March) will have equal weight for school assignment preferences. Pre-registration appointments for the 2022-23 school year are reserved only for kindergarten students during the months of January and February; students in other grades planning to attend PSB for the next school year will be able to begin registration in March 2022.
We respectfully ask that you request an appointment no earlier than 2 weeks prior to your date of occupancy. For example, if your lease in Brookline begins on September 1, please select a registration appointment on or after August 18.
If you have previously used our online registration software to register for BEEP, special education services, or your student’s sibling(s), please use your existing username and password. The Office of Registration and Enrollment will be happy to assist you in retrieving and resetting your login credentials if necessary. To add your Kindergarten student to the application, please click "Add Student".
One of the key steps of the online application is to electronically submit the required documents needed for Public Schools of Brookline registration. You will be asked to upload a PDF, JPG, or PNG file to our database for each document that is required. You can upload multiple files under the same label and submit pages individually or as a complete document.
At the end of the online application, you will be asked to electronically upload and submit the required documents. Click on the “Browse” button for each appropriate document category and select a file from your device to upload. Please note that our application only supports PDF, JPG, or PNG uploads at this time.
If you have difficulty uploading the files or converting it into a PDF or JPG format, you may also email them directly to our office at email@example.com with the subject line: “[Student Last Name] - Registration Documents - [Date of Registration Appointment]". You may also mail/drop off a physical copy of these documents at:
Public Schools of Brookline
Office of Registration and Enrollment
Brookline Town Hall, 4th Floor
333 Washington Street, Brookline, MA 02445
Our office dropbox is located at the main entrance of the Brookline Town Hall, in the vestibule. Please note that if you intend to drop off the documents physically, you can only do so during the hours in which Town Hall is open. We will return any original copies you send to us by physical mail upon request.
During the virtual appointment, the Office of Registration and Enrollment staff will verify with you the documents submitted electronically. Your student can not begin school until the PSB staff has validated all of the documents required to complete registration.
Failure to provide these documents - especially a student's birth certificate, immunization records, and proofs of residency - at the registration appointment may delay your student(s) enrollment. A student cannot begin school until all of the required documentation has been received by the Office of Registration and Enrollment.
