    Student Assignment Appeals

    Assignment Appeals (Transfer Appeals)

    Transfer Appeals are considered only in extreme or unique circumstances. Appeals are subject to the SPS assignment guidelines and are not granted on the basis of:

    • Curriculum issues
    • Transportation issues
    • Personal preference
    • Perceived quality of a school
    • Desired cultural population
    • Child care
    • After school activities
    • Non-school appointments
    • Family members' health

    Submitting a Transfer Appeal

    A complete Transfer Appeal must include a parent written statement, as well as a Principal Review form*. Submitting an appeal that does not include one or both may delay the result of the appeal. Please review the Transfer Appeal Process webpage for more information.

    Transfer appeals may be submitted to: transferappeal@seattleschools.org

    We will start accepting Transfer Appeals for the 2020-21 school year on June 1, 2020.
