Step 1: Verify Residency and Gather Documentation
The Office of Registration & Enrollment will verify documentation for your student(s) during the registration appointment.
Documentation needed to register your student for the Public Schools of Brookline includes:
Proofs of you and your student(s) residency in the Town of Brookline.
Proofs that verify your student's name, date of birth, previous school history, and other helpful documents to support your student.
Proofs that indicate your student meets all the health requirements to enter Public Schools in the State of Massachusetts.
You must still provide all of the required documents even if you have previously enrolled other students in the Public Schools of Brookline, and/or you are re-enrolling your students again after withdrawing from PSB and are looking to return to Brookline.
You are required to provide these documents to your in-person registration appointment. Any documents regarding your residence in Brookline must be active and dated within 45 days of the appointment date.
All documents presented must provide student demographic information (e.g. first and last name) in English. Please provide translations of the original documents are intended for English readers. All translations should be completed by a third-party professional translator or translation service prior to your appointment.
All students entering grades 1-12 into PSB must also complete a Records Release Form. The records required for registration depend on the grade that your student is entering. Each grade level and the corresponding required records are found below.
Please also present any records or documents relating to a student's Special Education services, Individualized Education Program (IEP), 504 Plan, or English Learner Education (ELE) records, if applicable.
