Under Massachusetts law, a child may attend the schools of the town in which s/he resides.  To attend public school in Amherst, in Pelham, or in the Regional District, a student must reside permanently in Amherst, in Pelham, or in one of the Regional towns, respectively, and must reside with at least one parent or legal guardian who has physical custody.  Typically, the residence of a child under 18 is the residence of the parent(s)/legal guardian(s) who has/have physical custody of the child. “Residence” is the place where a person dwells currently, with an intention to remain, and is in the town that is the core of his/her domestic, social, and civil life. The School District may require a variety of documentation to establish proof of residency and custody.  Investigations may be made by school officials to assure that a student maintains a bona fide permanent residence in the town.  Parents/guardians are under a continuing obligation to inform the School District of any and all changes to a student’s residential status. Any student who is determined to be a non-resident while enrolled in a school in any of the districts will be dismissed for non-residency.  The dismissal may be appealed to the Superintendent, and the student may be allowed to remain in school pending the outcome of the appeal.

MA Public School attendance is based on where a student actually resides and only resident students are able to attend.
