Out-of-Assigned District - Newton Residents ONLY

  • The Newton Public Schools considers applications from families residing in Newton who would like their student to attend or transfer to a school different from their assigned district. This process is also used for Newton faculty/staff (NTA Units A,B,C,D,E, NESA, Custodial Union) who wish to enroll their student in the Newton Public Schools. 


  • The deadline for Out of Assigned District requests was June 1, 2020. If you would still like to be considered for an Out of Assigned District placement, please reach out to the contacts listed below. Applications received after June 1st and before Labor Day may be considered only after all other placement decisions have been made. 

    Placement decisions for those who submitted applications by the deadline will be made as close to June 30th as possible

Other Key Information

    • Out-of-Assigned (OAD) district placements are limited and are made on a space available basis. The established procedure and application process must be followed in order for the request to be considered. Please see the Out-of-Assigned District Policy issued by the Newton School Committee and Out-of-Assigned District Procedures for more information.


    • Completed applications must be signed by the in-district principal and submitted to the Education Center.* (signature is NOT required for 2020-21 applications due to school closure.)


    • Parents/guardians are responsible for transportation if the student is placed out-of-assigned district.


    • For families, once an out-of-assigned district placement is approved, the student will follow the feeder pattern for the new school through middle and high school. A new application is NOT needed each year.
