IMPORTANT-Letter from the Superintendent
Please read the letter from Mr. Andy Irvin, regarding the movie 13 Reasons Why
As a public school system, the Carmel schools welcome all students who live within the boundaries of the Carmel Central School District and meet state age and health requirements. Students moving into the district during the summer should call their school to register before the start of the school year. Students who move into the district during the school year should make an appointment to enroll. A student is required to attend school in the attendance zone in which the family resides.
The natural parent, legal guardian or other person having legal control under a court order must enroll a student. Any person who is not the natural parent or is not designated guardian of the child by a court order must register with the office of Pupil Services prior to enrolling the student. The person enrolling the student must present their driver's license or department of transportation identification card at the time of registration.
If a family has not yet moved into the school district but is building or purchasing a home within the district boundaries, a Certification of Eligibility Form must be completed and the contract for purchase must be submitted to the office of Pupil Services prior to enrolling.
As part of the process of registering a child in the Carmel Central School District, you are being asked to provide information that will allow the district to verify that this child is legally entitled to an education in Carmel. The education of each child in our school is a responsibility we take seriously. Each one requires space, staff time, supplies that are expressly borne by the district. We hope that you will understand the obligation we have to our taxpayers to be sure that we are educating only those children who have a right to that education.
The law assumes that a child resides with his/her parents. If the claim is made that child's residence is with someone other than the child's parent or legal guardian, it will be necessary to obtain additional information to establish that child's residence in the district.
RECORDS NECESSARY TO ENROLL YOUR CHILD:
