Change of address:

As soon as you know you will be moving, please provide Student Enrollment with your new address information, the names of each student and each family member affected, and proof of residency for your new address.

If you are moving within the East Greenwich School District borders, you must provide proof of residency (as you did when your child was initially enrolled). It must be done each time you change your address. Please see above for examples of acceptable proof of residency.

Please note that your student's address, school, or bus transportation cannot be changed until this documentation is provided.

If you are moving OUT of the East Greenwich School District, please contact your child’s school building(s) directly for withdrawal information.

Will my student change schools?

Assignment rules vary, depending on the student's grade, when you move and where your new home is located.
