Preschool Program Enrollment

Edwin Pratt Early Learning Center offers Head Start, ECEAP, Special Education, and tuition preschool programs.

Out-of-District Enrollment

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.
