If you are interested in the Early Entrance process, and your child turns 5 between Sept. 1 and Oct. 31 of the year they are entering school, please thoroughly review the Early Entrance Process, Policy, and Procedure.

Preschool Program Enrollment
Edwin Pratt Early Learning Center offers Head Start, ECEAP, Special Education, and tuition preschool programs.
All Shoreline School District elementary, middle, and high schools are open to transfer requests from out-of-district students.
The District remains closed to new non-Shoreline School District resident applications for Head Start, Early Childhood Education Assistance Program (ECEAP), and preschoolers on an Individualized Education Program (IEP).
If a family that lives outside of the Shoreline Schools boundary would like to be considered, the first step is to visit this state portal and complete a Choice Transfer Request for their child. Each building will consider the transfer request based on factors such as space in the school/grade and a student's attendance history (see Board Policy 3141P for a full list). Choice Transfer Requests are submitted and considered annually. Once notified of acceptance, the family may then complete the standard enrollment process for their child.
Please note that transportation is not provided for out-of-district students; if a Choice Transfer Request is approved, the parent/guardian assumes responsibility for transporting the student to and from school daily or allows his/her child with a valid driver's license to drive to and from school daily.
Enroll online or through the main office of the home school by reaching out to the school registrar (complete list of registrars). A parent or legal guardian should accompany students when enrolling and provide:
- The student's immunization records
- Withdrawal form or report card from the last school attended
- Proof of residency if within the Shoreline Schools boundary (e.g., utility bill, lease agreement, mortgage statement, property tax statement). A child's primary household/residence is defined as the physical location where the child lives and sleeps four or more days/nights per week. The district is closed to new out-of-district applications for Head Start and Early Childhood Education.
Shoreline School District follows Washington State immunization laws and regulations. Learn about immunizations required for school. All students must have a Certificate of Immunization or Certificate of Exemption on file at the school prior to the first day.
All immunizations submitted to schools must be medically verified. Examples of medically verified immunization records include:
- A Certificate of Immunization printed from the Washington State Immunization Information System
- A medical record from a healthcare provider with their name and signature
- A medical record with an official health facility or provider logo/stamp (for example, a booklet that is stamped with the date, vaccine and clinic)
- A document from another US state or territory immunization registry
For Washington State residents who have received immunizations in the state, you can print out a copy of your student's Certificate of Immunization using the Washington State Immunization Information System, MyIR. Sign up for MyIR here.
You must first register for an account. If you have difficulties registering, call 1-866-397-0337 or email WAIISRecords@doh.wa.gov.
A Certificate of Exemption is required if a student is not immunized according to the required schedule. Exemptions can be for medical, personal/philosophical, or religious reason. Personal/philosophical exemptions are no longer allowed for the MMR vaccine as of August 2019. The Certificate of Exemption must be signed by a licensed healthcare provider and the parent/guardian. More information about exemptions and required forms.
HPV and Meningococcal Disease
The Washington State Legislature requires schools to make information about meningococcal disease and human papillomavirus (HPV) available to students starting in the 6th grade. Know the facts about these diseases and the vaccines available to protect your child. These vaccines are not required for school attendance, but they are important vaccines that could prevent disease. More information about HPV and Meningococcal Disease.
