The following documentation is required to register your child - these requirements have been determined by the Derby Public Schools Board of Education. Please use this checklist to track the documents you need to collect. A parent or legal guardian is required to register student(s). 

  • The child's original full-size birth certificate (not wallet size, not a photocopy) for all students born in the United States. Students born outside of the United States need to present a passport/visa or green card;
  • The State Health Assessment form (available for download below under “Things You Will Need For Registration”) and a copy of your child's current immunization record;

  • Proof of Residency (All of the below items are required)

    * Current Lease/Rental Agreement or Mortgage statement

         * Parent/Guardian CT License with Derby address on the front (change of address label on the back is acceptable.)

         * If you rent or lease your home/apartment you must also provide a notarized Landlord/Property Owner Certification of                 Residency (available for download below under “Things You Will Need For Registration”) Please Note: Our process is                     to call the landlord to verify the certification. We cannot proceed with registration until this is complete and all                                   documentation is received and verified.

  • Legal Custody Documentation if applicable

  • Special Education Records (IEP) or 504Plan if applicable
  • Students entering high school should provide their most recent report card or transcripts to facilitate creation of their schedule. Without this information, the student's start date may be delayed until we receive this information from their previous school. 

During summer break, additional time will be given for submission of the medical records. However, a completed Connecticut Health Assessment Record (completed within the last 12 months) including vaccination records, MUST be submitted no later than August 17th so the student may start on time. All students must have the appropriate vaccinations to enter school. Those with a valid religious or medical exemption are required to submit the appropriate documentation.

If you have any questions regarding the registration process, please contact Deborah Schmidt at 203-446-3920 or for assistance.
