     For K-12 registration or general information:

    Requirements for Enrollment: You must live in the Sweet Home Central School District in order for your child to attend our schools.  We have provided a district boundaries map and street listing on this page to verify that you live in the district. We do not accept tuition for out of district students.

    District Description: We have one high school, one middle school and four elementary schools. There is no open enrollment for elementary schools. Students are assigned to elementary schools based on the street they live on or if there is a need for ENL services. There are no exceptions.

    ENL services are offered at Willow Ridge, Maplemere and Heritage Heights Elementary. Students who live in the Glendale area that require ENL services attend Heritage Heights.

    STEPS TO ENROLL:

    #1  FILL OUT A REGISTRATION PACKET:  

    A completed registration packet is required for each new student. Registration packets are located on this website,  at the Sweet Home District office or in the Main office of each of our six school buildings.

    #2 PROVIDE  THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENTS AT THE TIME OF REGISTRATION:

    • TWO PROOFS OF LEGAL RESIDENCY:  Proof of home ownership or a current lease or current landlord statement* AND a current proof of electric, gas, water, landline phone, internet or cable service at that address
    • LEGAL PROOF OF AGE OF THE CHILD: Birth Certificate or passport or visa or baptismal certificate
    •  UP TO DATE IMMUNIZATION RECORD: There are no religious exceptions for immunizations. However, students transferring from out of state or out of the country where requirements may be different have 30 days to provide proof of NYS required immunizations.
    •  NYS PHYSICAL WITHIN THE LAST 12 MONTHS: If you do not have an updated physical, you will need to provide documentation of an appointment within 30 days of admission.
    •  PICTURE ID OF PARENT/GUARDIAN: driver's license (does not need to be from NY), passport or visa
    • PROOF OF LEGAL CUSTODY OR GUARDIANSHIP: In order to register a child for school, the biological parent or court-appointed legal guardian/ custodian must have legal residence in the Sweet Home District. It is against School Board Policy and NYS Education Law for children to attend public school where the custodial parent or legal guardian does not reside.
