Step 5: School Meetings

  • Step 5: School Meetings

    As part of the school assignment notification, the Office of Registration and Enrollment will notify the school counselor and/or support staff of your student's enrollment. The school counselor will schedule a meeting with you and your student(s) to discuss their class placements and any additional supports that may help their transition into PSB. Specific questions or concerns regarding their student's transition will be discussed during this meeting.

    Class schedules for older students will be finalized after the meeting with the counselor. Your student may require additional assessments prior to meeting with a school counselor to develop their class schedules.

    Your student(s) must meet with the school counselor before they can begin classes.

  • Financial Assistance

    The Public Schools of Brookline has a centralized application process to provide families with financial assistance for school-related fees. Eligibility for financial assistance will be renewed or updated through an annual application process. Financial assistance is available for curriculum-based field trip expenses, School Department Summer Programs, and other fees the school department may charge as a result of curriculum requirements. Financial assistance also includes any PSB student fees or charges for Athletics, Instrumental Music, and other program and field trip fees. 

  • Free and Reduced School Meals

    Children need healthy meals to learn. The Public Schools of Brookline offer healthy meals every school day. Your students may qualify for free meals or for reduced price meals if your household’s income is within the limits on the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines. 

  • Student Health and Nursing

    During the meeting with the guidance counselor, the school nurse may also meet with you to: 


    • Arrange for any special health care needs or for the administration of any essential medications or procedures that are prescribed during the school day. 

    • Confirm that your child’s immunizations are complete and that they are clear to attend school. 

    • Request an updated physical exam report. This is most important for students whose annual doctor's visit occurs after registration.

    If your child has specific health care needs, it is important that you meet with the school nurse before they begin attending school. If you need assistance in scheduling a meeting with the school nurse, the Office of Registration and Enrollment can help you arrange a meeting.
