Eighth-Grade Residency Re-Verification
The Great Neck Public Schools is currently undertaking the annual process of residency re-verification for all students entering ninth-grade in September 2017. This is done to collect documentation that will assist in assembling students' records for high school, and to verify that all students who enter the district high schools are residents of the district and thus entitled to attend.
Parents/legal guardians of all current eighth-grade students were recently sent a mailing that explains the documentation required and the method for submission. Additional information may be obtained by phoning your child's middle school (441-4500 for North Middle, or 441-4600 for South Middle), or by going to http://www.greatneck.k12.ny.us/GNPS/Pages/reverification.htm for "Eighth-Grade Re-Verification" on the district Web site.
Re-Verification must be completed before a current eighth-grade student will be admitted to high school. Early submission of the necessary documents will facilitate this process. Therefore, all families with a current eighth-grader are urged to submit the required documents before Friday, Feb. 17.
The Board of Education considers residency to be an important component in confronting the district's fiscal challenges. Re-verification is one tool to insure that every child who is being educated in the district's schools is entitled to that education.
