Welcome to Shoreline Public Schools!
New students are encouraged to enroll immediately upon moving into the district. To find out the name and location of the school in your boundary area, please log into E-Link or call the Public Information office at 206.393.4412.
Enroll at the main office of the home school that your child will attend. A parent or legal guardian should accompany students when enrolling and bring:
- The student's immunization records
- Withdrawal form or report card from the last school attended
- Proof of residency, (e.g. utility bill or 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. Shoreline residents only.
Washington state law requires that all children up to the age of 21 be fully immunized on or before the first day of school, all students must present or have on file a state Certificate of Immunization form, which is documentation of immunization status.
A student may be exempted from these requirements for medical, religious, or philosophical reasons. A change in the law enacted in July 2011 requires a physician's signature for those wishing to exempt for philosophical reasons. A physician's signature is also required to accompany a waiver for medical reasons. A proof of membership in a religious group that does not allow a health care practitioner to provide medical treatment to a child will also be required for those claiming a religious exemption.

Resident Release from Shoreline
Resident Transfers (In-District)
Please be advised that resident transfers are only considered at the beginning of the school year when the final head count is recorded. 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 resident school.
The District is closed to new non-Shoreline resident applications for grades K-6, Headstart and Early Childhood Education for 2016-17 & 2017-18. However, grades 7-12 are open to new non-Shoreline residents (please see your home District for their Choice Transfer Request form).
Due to continued increased enrollment, space constraints and anticipated future growth, Shoreline Public Schools will continue to be closed to new non-resident students in grades K-6, Headstart and Early Childhood Education.
Current students with non-resident boundary transfers who were enrolled prior to the 2015-16 school year will be allowed to continue to attend the Shoreline Public Schools unless admission is revoked for the reasons identified in the notice of acceptance.
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.
