Resident Transfers (In-District)
For grades 1-12 and kindergarten students enrolling after the school year has begun, resident transfers are handled at each school building throughout the school year and should be submitted directly to the school you'd like your child to transfer to. Resident transfers are reviewed and considered based on factors in the resident transfer form and if space is available at the school requested.
Resident transfers for the beginning of the school year are typically considered at the beginning of the school year, after the final head count is recorded (the second week of school). If any of the schools are under 95% capacity resident transfers will be considered with siblings of current resident transfers having priority. Families are encouraged to secure enrollment in their neighborhood school.
Choice Transfer Request (Resident Release)
If your student currently resides in the Shoreline School District, but you would like to apply for entry into a different district, you may do so in the Washington State Choice Transfer Request Portal. The request is not official until the other district formally accepts your student. At that time, it will be up to you to register your student at the out of district school.
Choice Transfer Request (Non-Resident)
Grades K-12 are open for consideration to new students who live outside the Shoreline School District boundary. Please contact your home district for information or visit the Washington State Choice Transfer Request Portal.
The District remains closed to new non-Shoreline resident applications for Head Start, Early Childhood Education Assistance Program (ECEAP) and preschoolers on an Individualized Education Program (IEP).
Students who move out of the District during the school year will be allowed to complete the year unless admission is revoked for the reasons identified in the notice of acceptance.
The District will continue to honor all statutory and contractual obligations relating to non-resident boundary transfer applications for the children of District employees.
