On this page, you'll find the forms you might need to enroll in a DOE public school.
- New to NYC? Fill out the Housing Questionnaire and provide to your new school or a Family Welcome Center.
- If you're not the primary leaseholder or homeowner where you live, fill out the Parent Affidavit of Residency.
- If you're temporarily taking care of a student but are not their parent or guardian, fill out the Non-Parent Affidavit.
