To Enroll for Belmont Public School System:
Once the family is actually living at the Belmont residence, the parent or legal guardian of the student may request a verification of residency to enroll the student in the Belmont public school system. Valid identification for the parent or legal guardian must be presented.
Forms are also available at the School Department, 644 Pleasant Street, Town Clerk' s office (Town Hall) and at each public school office.
The following elements are required in order to obtain a residency certification for school registration from the Town Clerk’s office:
1. Property Ownership/Lease Verification:
A. If you do not own the home in which you reside, you will need to provide:
A notarized Landlord Verification Form, which must list the names of all the residents in the household, regardless of age. (The landlord must present identification and sign the completed form in front of a Notary Public who then affixes the notary stamp.
B. If you do own the home in which you reside, you will need to provide:
A copy of the recorded deed or confirmation of ownership by the Belmont Assessor's office.
2. A completed current-year submitted census (obtained at Town Clerk's office) indicating residency at the property. Once submitted, this document will show the receipt stamp of the Town Clerk. The census must list all individuals living in the household. If renting the home, this listing must match the list of individuals submitted on the landlord letter. The census form must be signed by the adult Head of Household.
Upon verfication of the two pieces of information, the Town Clerk's staff will provide a document verifying residency in Belmont for the specified individuals. This document is required by the Belmont Public Schools and must be provided to the individual school at time of student registration.
