All registrations are subject to residency verification.

The district has strict guidelines for class size. Because of this, there may be times when a particular school will be unable to accommodate your child when the school is at capacity. In this case, the district will provide transportation to another school within the district.

For newly-registered families:
Please review the differences between hybrid and total remote instruction. Hybrid instruction is the default selection for the 2020-2021 school year. Families who wish for their student(s) to attend school in the total remote model should contact their student(s) school building(s).

Morning and afternoon bus transportation will automatically be set up for each student. If your student(s) does not need transportation, please contact the Transportation Department at 315-692-1218.


Address changes

For address changes within the district, please complete a change of address form and submit to the district office two items showing the parent or guardian’s name and address, such as:

    • A valid NYS driver’s license (with current address)
    • Utility bill, credit card bill, insurance bill, etc.
    • Signed statement of sale
    • Signed rental agreement
    • Income tax return
    • Voter registration

Please note that property tax bills and/or a purchase offer are not acceptable proofs of residency.

Private or parochial school enrollment

For families with students attending private or parochial schools, New York state requires each school district to account for all school-age children. Therefore, parents/guardians are required to register their children with the school district in which they reside (their home district). This meets state reporting requirements and informs the transportation department in the child’s home district to be aware of potential busing needs.


Immunization information

The New York State Education Department requires an annual physical exam for new students, students in grades K, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11; sports, working permits and triennially for the Committee on Special Education. All students must have record of having receiving the proper immunizations prior to starting school. It is recommended that parents and guardians discuss the requirements and address any questions or concerns with their child’s physician.


Daily building schedules

  • Elementary schools (grades K-4): 8:45 a.m. to 3:25 p.m.
  • Middle schools (grades 5-8): 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
