As this year quickly winds to a close, I would like to take a moment to thank each of our Milton Public School parents, guardians and staff for working together on behalf of all our students. We have a committed and supportive relationship with our parents and guardians. It goes without saying that our administrators and teachers are gifted, talented, dedicated and committed to advancing the individual potential of each and every Milton Public School student. I am proud to be your Superintendent of Schools. I wish you all a restful and wonderful summer break. See you in August!
Last spring, the Milton School Committee passed a Residency Policy that states “students who are enrolled in the Milton Public Schools shall be required to re-establish residency prior to entering grades six and nine as well as Milton Public School students who attend school out-of-town*.”
Families who have students in these categories are required to fill out the form that has been mailed to their homes or go to the following link and provide all necessary documentation.
This process, now in its second year, is one of the safeguards used by the Milton Public Schools to ensure that all students enrolled in our schools are residents of the town of Milton. Although the re-registration process may be an inconvenience for some families, we hope that residents understand that this is a valuable tool to protect taxpayers in the town of Milton. We work year-round on residency issues and this is simply one more method to assist us with ensuring residency compliance.
Ms. Patty Lesenechal, Milton Public Schools Residency Coordinator, will be working morning and evening hours all summer beginning on Tuesday, June 28th to facilitate parents/guardians work schedules. Ms. Lesenechal will be in the Milton High School main office (25 Gile Road) every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7am to noon; and Tuesday evenings from 4-8pm. Parents/guardians must submit their Re-Establish Residency packets by Friday, August 26th to ensure their child’s uninterrupted placement in Grades 6 and 9.
Ms. Lesenechal can be reached at 617-696-4470 ext 5516 or [email protected]
*This includes all students who attend Blue Hills Regional Technical School, Norfolk County Agricultural High School and Special Education out-of-district placements for students entering Grades 6 and 9.
