Residency Verification

Welcome to the District-Wide Residency Verification Page!

Dear Parent/Guardian,

While residency and custodial requirements outlined in NYS Education Law are carefully reviewed during the initial registration process, there are limited opportunities to continuously confirm a family’s residency status once a student is enrolled.  State statutes are very clear that children must attend the public school in the district in which they are legally domiciled.

As part of the residency verification process, families are asked to make an appointment on our online appointment scheduling system or submit documentation described on our Residency Verification Form through any of the options provided below.

  • email of scanned documents to registrar@brewsterschools.org
  • via regular mail (30 Farm to Market Road, Brewster, NY 10509 ATTN: Registrar)
  • walk-in/hand-deliver to school buildings and District Office

We kindly request that you place copies of these documents (no originals please) in a sealed envelope labeled “Residency Verification” and write your name and contact information clearly and legibly on the Residency Verification Form so that we are able to provide you with a record of receipt.

We do realize that this procedure may be an inconvenience, but hope that you understand that with limited resources and tighter school budgets, it is essential that every dollar spent in our schools goes towards the education of Brewster CSD residents only.  If you have any questions about this process, please refer to the helpful documents linked to this page or contact our District Registrar at 845-279-8000 ext. 6150. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
