NYSED Residency Guidance

Posted by Gregory J. Guercio | Jul 30, 2018 | 0 Comments

On July 19, 2018, the New York State Education Department (“NYSED”) issued new Residency Guidance after becoming aware of public concerns and inquiries indicating that some school districts have instituted a practice of “mandatory re-registration.” Although the Guidance does not specifically define the term “mandatory re-registration”, the Guidance references a mandatory practice wherein all parents and guardians are required to “re-register” students prior to the start of school in September, regardless of whether a question exists as to residency status. The Guidance indicates that such “mandatory re-registration” is contrary to the Commissioner's regulations, which only require registration upon a student's “initial enrollment” or “re-entry” into a school district.
