(Seattle, WA) Seattle Public Schools Open Enrollment for the 2010-2011 school year will begin Monday, March 1 and run through Wednesday, March 31, 2010. During Open Enrollment, families may register their child to enter SPS in fall 2010 and /or apply for a school other than their assigned school.

 

For the first time this year, current students in grades PreK-11 – and those who will be new to the district in fall 2010 and pre-registered before Jan. 15 – will get their assignment at the end of February.  Under the District’s new student assignment plan, students currently enrolled are “grandfathered” through the highest grade of the school they currently attend, providing that services they need are available at that school. Students in the highest grade at their current school (rising from elementary to middle school or middle school to high school) will receive an assignment to their attendance area school, or another school based on availability of services.

If the family wants the assignment noted in the February letter, no other action is needed. If the family wants to apply for a different attendance area school or an Option school, they may do so during Open Enrollment, March 1 – 31. Note that all applications received during this time are processed together at the end of March. While we encourage families to turn in their forms as soon as they can, there is NO ADVANTAGE to applying on March 1 vs. March 31.  Families who apply during Open Enrollment will receive their assignment at the end of May.  

All schools offer at least one open house and at least one school-day visit opportunity.  Information is available at www.seattleschools.org/area/eso/story.dxml
