Phone: 508-252-5000


Welcome to the Dighton-Rehoboth School District.
The purpose of this website is to outline the registration procedures for all students enrolling in school district for the school year beginning September 2017.

Parents are reminded that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts attendance regulations require that all children who have attained the age of six years must be registered and entered in the public schools. Parents do have the option of not entering their children into kindergarten. However, at the time of enrollment, children will be placed in the appropriate grade based on meeting the age requirements as noted. According to the School Committee policy JEB: The kindergarten entrance age is five (5) years of age on or before
August 31st, and the grade one entrance is six (6) years of age on or before August 31st.

At least one original document from each category listed as shown on the Residency form is required. Your child will not be enrolled unless you have these documents at the time of your appointment.
