The Great Neck Public Schools will again undertake the process of residency re-verification for all students entering ninth grade in September 2016. This will be done in an effort to collect documentation that will assist in assembling students’ records for high school and to verify that all students who enter the district high schools are residents of the district and entitled to attend.
Parents/legal guardians of all current eighth-grade students were recently sent a mailing that explains the documentation required and the method for submission. Additional information may be obtained by calling the middle school that your child currently attends, or by visiting the district’s website at www.greatneck.k12.ny.us, where updated information is posted under a section labeled Residency Re-Verification.
This process must be completed before a current eighth-grade student will be admitted to high school. Early submission of the necessary documents will facilitate this process. All families with a current eighth-grader are urged to submit the required documents before Friday, March 11.
The board of education considers residency to be an important component in confronting the district’s fiscal challenges. Re-verification ensures that every child being educated in the district’s schools is entitled to that education.
