Millburn Schools Addressing Parent Fears About Out-of-District Students by Re-Registering

March 5, 2014 at 6:58 AM

MILLBURN, NJ - In an effort to ensure that the Millburn School District is providing a free public education only to students who live in the township, it will begin working to re-verify student residence. The move comes in response to growing concern from parents that there are numerous non-resident students in the school system illegally.

Millburn Public Schools will conduct a mandatory re-registration of two grades of students in the spring of 2014. Re-registration for all incoming sixth-grade students (current fifth-graders) will take place during April. Re-registration for all incoming ninth-grade students (current eighth-graders) will occur during the month of May.

All families of children in those grades must submit a Re-Registration Form and provide the district with current proof that they permanently reside at a Millburn Township address.  Any incoming sixth or ninth-grader who does not re-register will be ineligible to attend Millburn Township Public Schools for the 2014‐2015 school year.

The re‐registration form and residency requirements may be found on the school district website at Click on Re-Registration under Quick Links. Forms are also available for pick‐up at all school offices or at the Board of Education office at 434 Millburn Avenue. Birth Certificate & Immunization Records Are Not Required. 

If a student will not be attending Millburn Schools in 2014-15, a parent must submit a Withdrawal Form as part of the re-registration process, and their child’s records will be forwarded to the new school at the end of this school year. 

If a family will be moving within district, they must submit a Change of Address form along with their re-registration documentation.
