Registration Information

We would like to welcome you and your child to the East Providence School Department. We are all excited to be part of your student’s academic future.  Please come to City Hall, 145 Taunton Ave. Rm. 302 to register your child. We have included the required list of documents you will need on this page. Requirements for Registration
  • ONLY the Parent/Guardian must register the child;
  • Child's Birth Certificate
  • Health Records (Proof of Immunizations)
  • Prior School Records (transcripts, report card, 504, IEP)
  • Residency Verification (See note below and Residency Procedures)
RESIDENCY VERIFICATION The East Providence School Department requires that all parents and/or guardians provide current residency verification for students enrolled in their community public schools on an annual basis. Residency verification requested is a copy of a current lease agreement, or mortgage statement - both of which requires the address to be visible on the document. In the event, you do not have either a lease agreement or mortgage statement, and may be residing with extended family, a  Residency Affidavit must be completed. The Affidavit is a legal document which is completed by the owner of the address you reside at, and confirms you and your child(ren) are presently living at the premises. Please contact your child's school or Central Office Registration (401-431-4634) with any questions you may have regarding the verification process. PARENTAL REQUESTS Parental Requests for a different school have been allowed in the past. This year, while requests can be submitted, the priority is to maintain all students in their home schools. By doing so, neighborhood friendships and communities are strengthened. Requests will be taken until June 25th, at which time they will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Parents will be notified in August if the request has been granted. NOTE: Parental requests are not eligible for bus service.   STREET DIRECTORY Click Here for the 2017-2018 Street Directory by School   KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION Click Here for Important 2018-2019 Kindergarten Information.

Parenting Partners Program

We know that parents play an important role in their child’ success in school. Therefore we invite parents to partner with our schools in order to help improve academic, social, behavioral and emotional success for their children. The East Providence School Department is happy to announce a parent engagement program called “Parenting Partners”. This program will currently be offered at all Title I schools. A team of educators at each building has been trained to organize and facilitate workshops for parents/guardians. Each session lasts 8 weeks and covers a different topic. The sessions will be ongoing so everyone who would like to participate will get a chance over the course of the school year. The list of topics covered at each 8 week session includes: • Positive Parenting: Success Starts at Home • Creating Confident Kids • Communication That Works • Creating Structure for Agreement • Discipline - Practice for Success • What Children and Teens Need to Know • Parents Involved for Academic Success • Parent Graduation Ceremony! You will receive notification from the team at your child’s school regarding when the session will be offered at each particular school. We hope you will join us in this important partnership!   Programa de Asociacion Para los Padres Programa para Pais Click here for more information about Parenting Partners
Dear East Providence Families,

Research shows that over the summer students can lose many important skills while away from the classroom. This is called the “summer slide”. In order to make sure your children are ready for next year, please use this on-line resource to provide summer learning opportunities at home and/or at your public library.

We hope you and your family have a wonderful summer!
