Private/Parochial School

  • New York State requires the school district to report the school of attendance for all school-aged children who live in the district. If you are a district resident and you will be registering your child in a private or parochial school, please notify the registrar’s office. 


    The district provides transportation to resident students who attend private/parochial schools within 15 miles of their home. To receive transportation services, you must provide two proofs of residency.


    If your child attends a private/parochial school but you plan to enroll him/her in a Gates Chili public school for the upcoming school year, you must contact the registrar even if your child previously attended a district school.
