Each year, the Newton Public Schools considers applications for students to transfer to a school outside of their home (assigned) district. Out-of-Assigned district placements are limited and made on a space available basis. Newton residents, as well as members of NTA Units A, B, C, D, E, NESA, and the Custodial Union, may apply for placement of their children in a Newton Public School.
Impact on enrollment, staffing and space availability, for both the requested year and for future years, are key considerations in the application process. Parents are responsible for their child’s transportation to and from the out-of-assigned district school.
Applications for the 2018-19 school year are available beginning November 29, 2017 and should be submitted between March 1 and May 1, 2018. Forms are available at the Education Center (100 Walnut Street) and online at www.newton.k12.ma.us. Completed applications must be signed by the in-district principal for Newton parents and submitted to the Education Center by mail or in person.
Interested families may contact the Elementary Education Office (grades K-5) at 617-559-6105 or the Secondary Education Office (grades 6-12) at 617-559-6115 for additional information.
