A Guide to Understanding the New Rules for School Registration

In July 2015, the Commissioner’s Regulations governing enrollment were amended to ensure that all students, and in particular unaccompanied youth, have timely access to school. The Regulations require that school districts accept a broader range of documents to establish residency and set out timelines for making residency determinations. This brochure details these changes and is designed for parents so that they better understand the enrollment process.
