Registering Your Child(ren) to Attend PRSD
The Pearl River School District provides educational opportunities to resident children between the ages of 5 and 21 years of age without payment of tuition. Parents and/or legal guardians will be required to establish residency through physical presence as an inhabitant of the school district and intent to reside in the district. Two proofs of residency, as noted below, will be required for registration and enrollment. In addition, the district may require proof of parental relationship or proof that the child resides with the parent(s)/guardian(s). At the time of registration, enrollment proof of age and immunizations, as noted below, will also be required. Out of district residents are not accepted on a tuition basis. Pearl River School District Boundaries
Changes in address for enrolled students, must be reported with documentation to the building administrator within five (5) business days of the change of address. Residency determination may be reviewed at any time by the Board of Education designated residency officer.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Pearl River School District follows a centralized registration process. In order to maintain balanced class sizes across the district, all new elementary students are assigned to one of three schools. While geographic boundaries serve as a general guideline, school placement will depend on grade level enrollment, special education needs, and ENL programming.

What Happens After Registration?
Once the required registration documents have been completed and verified, students will be assigned to the appropriate grade and building. Students enrolled at the middle and high school will be referred to the appropriate guidance counselors and building administrators. Students enrolling at the elementary level (K-4), will be assigned to a building based on current grade level enrollment at each elementary school and/or need for any special programming. This process enables the District to maintain equitable class sizes and consistent programming across the three elementary schools.
Central registration takes place on a rolling basis during the school year, September through June. Students enrolling in the spring (K-4) for the new school year will be notified of the elementary building placement in late July or early August.
