Thank you for your inquiry into registering your child in the Milton Public Schools.
Effective immediately, the Milton Public Schools will be accepting online registrations for students enrolling for:
- The remainder of the 2019-20 school year
- Kindergarten for the 2020 - 21 school year
- Students enrolled in private Kindergarten and wish to enroll their child in Grade 1 in the Milton Public schools for the 2020-2021 school year.
All other registrations for the school year 2020-2021 will be conducted in July and August 2020.
If your child falls into one of the above categories, please visit the MPS Registration Packet, print the packet, and complete all sections. Once completed please scan and email electronic copies of the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Completed registration packet
- Birth Certificate
- Most recent physical exam
- Up to date immunizations
- Proof of residency documentation (see page 13 of MPS Registration Packet)
The Director of Nursing, Kim Coughlin, will review all submitted health and emergency information forms, physical health form and immunization records to ensure all documents have required information.
When school reopens, families will be required to provide original copies of the birth certificate, landlord living agreement (where applicable), and property owner certification form (where applicable) in order for their child(ren) to remain enrolled in the Milton Public Schools. Should a home visit be required, this will take place once school operations resume.
Please note that most Milton Public Schools staff are working remotely and so we ask for your understanding if response times are slower than expected. Please email Registrar Sarina Burke if you have any questions or need additional information.

Grade One Enrollment Information
Enrollment in the Grade One French Immersion program is limited in each school. If there are more students who select French Immersion at a school than there are seats available a school based lottery will be held to determine who is enrolled in the program. The limited seats for the program means that there is no guarantee that a student will be able to enter the French Immersion program. See the Grade One Assignment Policy.
Residency Policy / Re-establish
In the Spring of 2015, the Milton School Committee passed a Residency Policy that states “students who are enrolled in the Milton Public Schools shall be required to re-establish residency prior to entering grades six and nine as well as Milton Public School students who attend school out-of-town*.” The Residency Policy can be found here.
Families who have students in these categories are required to complete the Re-establish Residency Packet that will be mailed to their homes (form is also available on the MPS website at www.miltonps.org - go to About and then Student Registration) and provide all necessary documentation. This process is one of the safeguards used by the Milton Public Schools to ensure that all students enrolled in our schools are residents of the town of Milton. Although the re-registration process may be an inconvenience for some families, we hope that residents understand that this is a valuable tool to protect taxpayers in the town of Milton. We work year-round on residency issues and this is simply one more method to assist us with ensuring residency compliance.
Ms. Sarina Burke, MPS Residency Coordinator, email@example.com or at 617-696-4470 ext 5516.
*This includes all students who attend Blue Hills Regional Technical School, Norfolk County Agricultural High School and Special Education out-of-district placements for students entering grades 6 and 9.
Families who have students in these categories are required to fill out the packet that has been mailed to their homes or go to the following link and provide all necessary documentation.
