    New for the 2022-23 School Year

    Starting this coming 2022-23 school year, Shoreline School District elementary schools will be open to transfer requests from out-of-district students. In recent years, our K-5 schools have been closed to Choice Transfer Requests from students who live outside the district boundaries, but a recent decline in enrollment and projected decreasing numbers means we have room in the coming school year.

    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. 

    There is no change to the policy that Choice Transfer Requests are still considered for middle and high schools. The Head Start and Early Childhood Education (Special Education) programs run by Edwin Pratt Early Learning Center are still closed to out-of-district students.

    Student Enrollment

    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. 

    Immunization Requirements

    Immunization Exemptions
    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. For more information about exemptions and the required forms go here to learn about them.

    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 these diseases and vaccines is available here to learn about.


    Enrollment Information for Kindergarten
