Welcome to Naugatuck Public Schools!
We can't wait to meet your child(ren) and welcome them to our Naugatuck family. To enroll your children, follow the steps below.
All enrollment takes place at the Board of Education offices at 497 Rubber Ave. The office is located to the right of the high school, in the same building. There is a separate parking entrance on Rubber Avenue. The offices are open to accept enrollment from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Please bring the following documents:
1. Two Proofs of Residency
The legal residence of a student will be determined by the residence of the parents/guardians with whom the student is living. Proof of residency can be validated by providing two documents.
You must have one of the following:
- Mortgage statement
- Rental agreement
- Notarized statement from the property owner
And at least one of the following:
- Utility bill of parent/guardian (electric, gas or water)
- Real estate or personal property tax bill of parent/guardian
- Or other form of documentation approved by the Superintendent
2. Proof of Guardianship
Guardianship may be established with the following documentation:
- Full size original (no copies accepted) birth certificate showing the name(s) of parent(s)
- Probate court documents showing transfer of guardianship
- Valid photo ID of the parent/guardian listed on birth certificate or passport or probate documents (used for identification purposes only).
- Probate forms
- Pamphlet explaining transfer of guardianship
Fee waiver applications will be available at each school.
Guardians of any child attending Naugatuck Public Schools must provide proof of guardianship by submitting to the Superintendent of Schools a copy of a court order from a Connecticut Court appointing the adult as guardian of the student.
In the event that an application for guardianship has been filed and a hearing is pending in Court, then a copy of the application filed with the Court, with the Court’s date stamp shall be acceptable until a final Court order is obtained appointing said adult as permanent or temporary guardian of the child. This Court order shall be provided to the Superintendent of Schools as soon as it is obtained, but no later than 120 days from the submission of the pending application for guardianship. Temporary guardianship must be renewed annually on the anniversary date of the original order, and paperwork provided to the Superintendent of Schools.
3. Proof of Immunization
4. Birth Certificate
The long form is required. We are not required to keep a certified copy; however, we must witness the seal on it and make a copy for our files.
5. Completed State of Connecticut medical form
This is the blue form with an up-to-date physical record.
Change of Address or Guardianship reported by family:
- School sends letter to family requesting proof of residency or guardianship (same proof as required for new families) within two weeks of notifying school of change.
- If family does not produce proof, a “Possible Non-Resident” referral is submitted to the Superintendent’s office and a second letter is generated from central office.
If School Suspects Change of Address or Guardianship:
The school will follow the procedure outlined below:
- School sends a certified, return receipt letter requesting that the family update or verify the existing residency or guardianship information within 10 days.
- If letter comes back undeliverable or the family does not respond within 10 days, the school notifies the Superintendent’s office of suspicions with the “Possible Non-Resident” referral.
- Central Office generates a “Report of Non-Resident Student” and sends it to the family.
Possible evidence that warrants suspicion of non-residency:
- Photos of students at a non-Naugatuck address
- Returned mail
- Documented tip
- Anecdotal reports from students or others
- Court/public documents
- Newspapers (police blotter, etc.)
- Bus company reports (on “Suspicion of Non-Residency” form)
- Home visits
- Refusal of parent/guardian to show driver’s license
Determination that Student is a Non-resident
- If verification of guardianship or residency is not substantiated, an eviction notice letter from the Superintendent’s office will be generated within 10 days of determining the child is a non-resident and sent certified, return receipt to the family with a copy sent to the school.
- If the family returns to Naugatuck, they must go through the process for a new family.
