     In its continued effort to serve the residents of the Newburgh Enlarged City School District, the Office of Registration continually pursues the efficient placement of children in the schools of their choice.

     The Office of Registration is responsible for the registration of all students new to the District or those re-entering the District. Registration for students entering the Newburgh District during the school year is ongoing.

     The Office also has the responsibility of distributing and equalizing Pre-Kindergarten enrollment among the nine Universal Pre-Kindergarten program sites; and K-8 enrollment among the Districtís seven elementary schools, two K-8 schools, and two middle schools. The office designs and implements all aspects of the registration and transfer process guided by the policies and regulations of the Newburgh Board of Education.

     In order to accomplish this, a lottery might be necessary at the Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and Middle School levels each year. If the number of applications to a certain school exceeds the number of seats available at that school, a lottery might be conducted. Siblings of students already enrolled in a particular school have preference to that building.

Universal Pre-Kindergarten
     The District offers a grant-funded half-day Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program. The program is offered at no cost to parents. All children must be toilet-trained prior to entering the program.

     Parents are reminded that requirements for registration for Pre-Kindergarten are as follows and are to be satisfied at the time of registration:

Transfer Requests
     Transfer requests are accepted from January through the end of June for consideration for the following September. Requests are reviewed at the end of July by the Office of Registration.

     The procedure for all transfer requests begins with the parent(s) making an appointment to meet with their childís teacher and the building principal. At this meeting, the parent(s) fill out a Transfer Request form; the principalís office then forwards the transfer request to the Office of Registration for review over the summer.

For students transferring into the district, in order for your child to be scheduled appropriately, the most recent report card or transcript must be provided.
