Our Services

1. Change of Address

In an effort to ensure that New Haven Public Schools (and the Office of School Choice and Enrollment) has the most accurate information for your child in our system, families should update their current home address any time they have moved.

You must provide appropriate documentation to update your home address.

To update your address, please provide one (1) of the following items:

  • An active Lease, Mortgage or Deed with the parent or guardian’s name and primary home address.

OR, please provide two (2) of the following items:

  • A Home Utility Bill (e.g. Electric, Water, Gas, Sewer, Cable/Internet) dated within the last 60 calendar days or an appropriate transfer of services from the utility provider.
  • Active motor vehicle insurance, SNAP documentation or a health insurance benefits statement from the State of CT (e.g. Husky)

Any parent or guardian without a Lease, Mortgage or Home Utility Bill in their name must submit a residency affidavit completed by the adult-resident with whom they are currently residing. The affidavit must be notarized and returned to the Office of School Choice and Enrollment with proof of residency (see above requirements) from the adult-resident with whom the parent is residing.
