Complete the online registration application, submit documentation electronically, and make your virtual appointment with the Office of Registration & Enrollment.
Applications should only be completed by families who meet the residency requirements and are active residents in the Town of Brookline.
The online application for Kindergarten will be available beginning Wednesday, January 4, 2022. You can access the application at any time to begin reviewing and editing your student’s information. However, you cannot submit the online application, select an appointment time, and complete registration until after January 4. Applications should only be completed by families who meet the residency requirements.
We respectfully ask that you request an appointment no earlier than 2 weeks prior to your date of occupancy (i.e. when both you AND your student(s) will be living in Brookline).
For example, if your lease in Brookline begins on September 1, please select a registration appointment on or after August 18. If you or your child is arriving in Brookline later than the date you plan to occupy the home, please use the date of your child's arrival.
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 preschool programs are NOT required for kindergarten registration.
Aspen Parent Portal Account Creation
You must create an account on the Aspen Family Portal in order to access the online registration application. Aspen is the primary database on which PSB maintains the information of their students and families. Because the account you create for registration will be maintained and kept throughout your student(s) educational tenure at PSB, we highly recommend that you keep a record of your login credentials.
New families entering or families re-entering PSB after withdrawing from the district:
New families entering or families re-entering PSB after withdrawing from the district should begin the process by creating a new account on Aspen, even if they have previously registered through the software with another district, school, or institution. You can create an account by clicking the "request an account link" on the main Aspen page.
Current PSB families or families with students enrolled at PSB during previous school years:
Once you have set up your Aspen account, you will receive a confirmation email from a "@myfollet.com" account. Clicking on the link will activate your account and allow you to complete the application form.
- Please use this specific url to request an account: https://ma-brookline.myfollett.com/aspen-go/login.
- Once you confirm the account in your email, log into the portal from the normal view (not the URL above) here: https://ma-brookline.myfollett.com/aspen/logon.do.
- To access the application process, once logged in, select the “view full site" option.
Please understand that the application process is not as easy on a mobile device, since the screen is often a little small (where a tablet might be more comfortable than a phone, for instance). Using the "view full site" view does make it possible with a bit of patience. Even if you can get things started, it will make things possible for my team to help move forward most efficiently.
You must complete the online enrollment application in order to move forward in the registration process. Please review the application carefully as some of the responses, such as grade level and school, will be automatically generated by Aspen based on your input. Click here for a list of general tips and tricks for completing this application.
The final step of the online application requires you to select an appointment time for your virtual meeting with the Office of Registration & Enrollment. Make sure you complete this step and make a note of the appointment date and time before exiting the application.
One of the final steps of the online application is to electronically submit the required documents needed for Public Schools of Brookline registration. You will be asked to upload a PDF, JPG, or PNG file to our database for each document that is required. You can upload multiple files under the same label and submit pages individually or as a complete document.
At the end of the online application, you will be asked to electronically upload and submit the required documents. Click on the “Browse” button for each appropriate document category and select a file from your device to upload. Please note that our application only supports PDF, JPG, or PNG uploads at this time.
If you have difficulty uploading the files or converting it into a PDF or JPG format, you may also email them directly to our office at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: “[Student Last Name] - Registration Documents - [Date of Registration Appointment]". You may also mail/drop off a physical copy of these documents at:
- Public Schools of Brookline - Office of Registration and Enrollment
Brookline Town Hall, 4th Floor
333 Washington Street
Brookline, MA 02445
Our office dropbox is located at the main entrance of the Brookline Town Hall, in the vestibule. Please note that if you intend to drop off the documents physically, you can only do so during the hours in which Town Hall is open. We will return any original copies you send to us by physical mail upon request.
During the virtual appointment, the Office of Registration and Enrollment staff will verify with you the documents submitted electronically. Your student can not begin school until the PSB staff has validated all of the documents required to complete registration.
Failure to provide these documents - especially a student's birth certificate, immunization records, and proofs of residency - at the registration appointment may delay your student(s) enrollment.
A student cannot begin school until all of the required documentation has been received by the Office of Registration and Enrollment.
If the student you are registering is a current BEEP student, you must complete registration through the “Student and Medical Verification Form" on the Aspen Parent Portal. You can login using the email address (Login ID) and password you associate with PSB.
We ask that you carefully review and verify your student’s information, consents/permissions, and medical histories. In addition, you will be asked enter information about your school assignment preference, and select an registration verification appointment. Our staff will contact you directly to navigate this process beginning in December 2022.
Registration verification appointments for kindergarten are required for all students, including those currently enrolled in BEEP. You will be required to schedule an appointment time for your virtual appointment as part of the application verification process. All current BEEP families are required to submit updated residency and student health documents for Kindergarten registration, regardless of when they were first enrolled in the district.
