New to Derby Public Schools?

If you are entering Derby Public Schools for the first time, you will go to your new school to enroll in person. To find out the school your child is assigned to, visit our Transportation Department page and click on the Address Locator tool. It is essential that you bring the following items with you to enrollment:

  • Birth Certificate: If a birth certificate is not available, schools will accept a hospital certificate of birth, a visa or passport, a certified transcript from another school district or a court order that shows the birth date and places the student with the Department for Children and Families. Students may enter kindergarten if they are five years old on or before August 31, 2024. Students may enroll in first grade if they will be six years old on or before August 31, 2024.
  • Proof of Residency: Please bring a utility bill (water/gas/electric) that verifies you live within the district boundaries.
  • Health Assessment: A current health assessment is strongly encouraged for all students. Consult your child’s healthcare provider to obtain and complete a health assessment. Return this information to the school nurse.
  • Immunization Requirements: Official, valid immunization documentation is required by law. The official school exclusion day for non-compliance of immunizations is September 3, 2024.
