New Student Registration

Registering Your Child For School
When registering your child for school, it is important to remember to bring the following information with you:
• Proof of Residency
• Proof of Age
• Proof of Immunization

Complaints concerning enrollment and registration can be submitted to the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) by mail to 120 Broadway, 23rd Floor, New York, NY 10271, by phone to (212) 416-8250, or by email to

Children must be five on or before December 1. 

Pre-K Program​
The Dryden Central School District offers a Pre-K program, on a limited basis, to residents of the Dryden School District. Pre-K program decisions are part of the budgeting process. The number of students we are able to serve is dependent of the outcome of the budget process and budget vote.

The Dryden Pre-Kindergarten Program is a free program for four-year-old students who reside in the district. Students must be four years old prior Dec. 1 of the school year to be in the program, and they may not be five years old. The Pre-K program follows the school district calendar and the school hours closely.

Selection for the Pre-K program is done through a public drawing, and the applications are drawn until the program is full. We then continue drawing names and keep an ordered list so that we can offer any future openings to those children in the order that their names were drawn.

The application for the program can be found to the right. The drawing of the applications will be held on the last Thursday in May at 3:45PM in the District Office. You do not need to be present at the drawing and all applicants will be notified of their placement within a week of the drawing.

Directions for submitting the application are found at the bottom of the application.
