Frequently Asked Questions about Enrolling a Student

I already have other children attending Montville Public Schools. Do I need to complete this enrollment application online and prove residency again at my appointment?

Yes, for each new student entering the Montville Public Schools the online application must be completed and proof of residency, student age & health/immunization documents must be provided at your appointment.

I am homeless and I am living in a shelter or doubled up with a family member or friend.

Please follow the link to the district policy on homeless students. A school district must immediately enroll a homeless student and allow the student to attend school even if the student is unable to produce records normally required for enrollment, such as previous academic records, proof of residency, or other documentation. The district will then immediately contact the last school attended to obtain any relevant records and make appropriate referrals for required immunizations and health exams. Click Here

I have just moved to Montville and have not yet received utility/water/sewer/bank/renter's or homeowner's insurance statements yet. How will I be able to provide these as a supplemental proof of residency?

Most utility companies will provide a verification letter stating that an account has been opened in your name at your new Montville address. This letter could be accepted as your utility bill requirement. If you can access your statement or account verification online this could also be accepted. Please remember 2 statements can only be used as one proof of residency.

I have just moved to Montville and my driver's license/state ID doesn't have my new Montville address on the front. How will I be able to provide this as a supplemental proof of residency?

If you go to our local Montville Police Department with proof you have moved (closing disclosure, lease, etc.) they will provide you the sticker for the back of your driver's license/state ID. This will allow you to add your new Montville address to the back of your license/ID. This would be accepted.

My child has not had his/her 5 year physical yet. Can I still enroll my child?

The enrollment/registration process can be completed without the physical form. This form can be brought directly to your child's school at a later date. Please keep in mind that your child cannot begin/attend school/classes until this form has been received and verified by the school nurse.
