 2017-2018 Student Registration

Students enrolling in Clinton’s public schools must verify their residency in the school district.

Like last year, the Clinton Public School District is encouraging parents to submit residency verification documents during the summer in order to make the registration process easier in the fall. Documents may be brought to Central Office (201 Easthaven Drive, Clinton) from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, June 5-July 21. Central Office is closed July 4.

To accommodate parents who cannot come during the workweek, CPSD will accept residency documents from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 17 and Saturday, July 22.

After July 21, parents must bring residency documents to their child’s school at registration.

Students who are new to CPSD — including kindergarten students and new students enrolling by affidavit — may submit residency documents on Aug. 1. Returning students who are enrolling by affidavit may bring residency documents on Aug. 8 and a notary will be provided.

To meet the residency requirement, parents or guardians must provide two proofs of residency.

These can include ONE of the following:

- Mortgage document
- Lease agreement listing all occupants and expiration date
- Homestead exemption form
- Deed


One of the following:
- Electric, gas or water bill dated within the past three months
- Car tag registration

Students and Parents
It is important that students know and understand where they stand academically.  To assist with this, we have created an average calculator. Students can plug in there S1 and Q3 grades to calculate what they need to be successful for Y!.
