Student Registration & Enrollment Procedures
Welcome to the Leonia Public School District

We have attempted to provide you with most of the information you will need to register and enroll your child into our school district on this web site.  Most of the Documents and Forms may be filled out and printed at home and brought to the Leonia Board of Education Offices at 570 Grand Avenue (the little grey house with the sign on the front lawn).

Proof of Residency must be established before your child may enter as a student in the district.  The following documentation is required at the time of registration:

Proof of Residency:  a copy of a current lease or deed

  • A current Utility Bill
  • Child's Birth Certificate or Passport
  • Student Transfer Card from the student's previous district.
