The Great Neck Public Schools is again undertaking the process of residency re-verification for all students entering ninth grade in September 2013. This is being done in an effort to collect documentation that will assist in assembling students’ records for high school, and to verify that all students who enter the district high schools are residents of the district and thus entitled to attend. This process must be completed before a current eighth grade student will be admitted to high school. Early submission of the necessary documents will facilitate this process. Therefore, all families with a current eighth grader are urged to submit the required documents before Wednesday, April 3.
