To apply to attend school in Derby an Out-of-District Waiver must be submitted on a yearly basis, the waiver will need to be approved, and the enrollment must occur prior to September 20 of the current school year. The Out of District Waiver form will be available in April. Non-resident pupils will be admitted only to the extent that staff, equipment, and supplies are available, and policy requirements are met. Derby Public Schools will contact the applicant within 30 days of the receipt of the application to share the district’s decision.
