Step 1  

Can I pre-register for BEEP?

In order for a student to be enrolled for BEEP, a family must receive an official invitation to join the program from the BEEP offices.  

For families seeking a Special Education evaluation through the Brookline Early Education Program, are transitioning from Early Intervention Services, or have a current IEP through another public school system and are moving to the Town of Brookline, please follow the instructions on our page Seeking Special Education Evaluation.

Enrollment in the Public Schools of Brookline is contingent upon residency.  

  • You must be a resident of Brookline in order to attend the Public Schools of Brookline.
  • Before a student is registered and can start school, his/her parent or legal guardian must provide proofs of primary residence to the Office of Student Affairs.  
  • Temporary residence in the Town of Brookline for the sole purpose of attending the Public Schools of Brookline will not be considered residency.  
  • You must be a resident at the time of pre-registration.  If you are planning to move to the Town of Brookline, you can pre-register your student only once you have taken occupancy of your Brookline residence.

 
Step 2
 
Complete the online pre-registration application and make appointment with the Office of Student Affairs: 

 The online application for BEEP is now available.

  • When completing the application, please select the “Appointment type” answer Next school year, Preschool in order to apply for BEEP
  • The final part of the online application is to schedule an appointment with the Office of Student Affairs.  Make sure you complete this step and save the appointment date and time before exiting the application.
  • Appointments will take place beginning March 2017. 
  • If you have previously used Registration Gateway (the online application interface), you should use your existing username and password.
Begin with the online application by clicking the "Pre-Registration" button below:

 Step 3
 
Gather all required documents to bring to your appointment:
 
The parent/guardian must bring all required documents for each new student to enroll in the Public Schools of Brookline. 
 
  • If you have registered older siblings with the Public Schools of Brookline, you must still bring all of the required documents listed below.  Any items from the Occupancy list and the Landlord Living Agreement document must be dated within forty-five (45) days of the scheduled pre-registration appointment.  The Office of Student Affairs will verify the residency for all students at this time. 
Please download and print the required forms; bring completed forms with you to your pre-registration appointment.
 
We ask that all documents be completely translated into English.  All translations should be completed by a professional translator or translation service prior to your appointment.

Previous school records from daycare providers and pre-school programs are NOT required for BEEP pre-registration.

Step 4  

The Pre-Registration Appointment:
 

Pre-Registration Appointments will take place with the Office of Student Affairs, located at 24 Webster Place, Brookline, MA 02445.

Staff will review your application, the required documents, and discuss the next steps for your student’s enrollment.

  • Please have ALL required documents at the time of your appointment in order to move to the next stage of enrollment.
  • If you are missing documents, you will need to return to the Office of Student Affairs with those documents.

Staff will help you complete a Home Language Survey. Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education regulations require that all schools determine the language(s) spoken in each student’s home in order to identify their specific language needs. If a language other than English is spoken in the home, the District is required to do further screening of your student. If further screening is required, Office of Student Affairs staff will schedule an appointment for your student with our English Language Learning Department at the time of pre-registration.

Step 5  

BEEP Contract and Immunization Clearance:
 
Each new student’s family will complete their registration by signing the BEEP contract.  Please bring any requested forms with you to the pre-registration appointment so that you can present them to our BEEP staff once you have completed pre-Registration.
 
Immunizations must be determined compliant by a school nurse (following submission at pre-registration, prior to school attendance).
  • A full list of required health documentation can be found here: Public Schools of Brookline Health Services
    • Please be aware that although you register your child for school, they are excluded from starting school until immunization requirements are met. Please review the regulations above to ensure that your child is compliant. It is important to note that different countries have different requirements so students enrolling from outside of the United States may be missing one or more of our required immunizations.
    • These include the Tdap vaccine, 2 MMR and the 4 Polio vaccines.
    • Massachusetts Department of Public Health requires that an additional vaccine be given if Measles, Mumps, Rubella or Varicella is given prior to the first birthday.
  • A nurse will contact families if students do not meet the requirements for school entry.
