    Open Enrollment is Feb. 4 - 22, 2019 for the 2019-20 School Year

    Each student in Seattle Public Schools is initially assigned to a designated attendance area school based on where that student lives. Students may apply to attend a different school or program through School Choice, but choice assignments are not guaranteed.

    Open Enrollment is the annual period where students may first apply to attend a different school or program next year.

    The school choice period continues until May 31, 2019, but on-time applications are those received during Open Enrollment (Feb. 4 - 22, 2019) and will be processed with applicable tiebreakers. (Because of snow days the Open Enrollment deadline was extended.)

    Late choice applications will be accepted through May 31, 2019, but are not eligible for priority tiebreakers.

    The results of Open Enrollment for the 2019-20 school year will be available online in mid-April.

    Reasons to apply:

    Newly eligible for Advanced Learning or Special Education services. Read more about change of school process for special education students.

    Recently moved and want to remain at your current school.

    Attend school with siblings already there.

    Explore a new learning community.

    Submitting School Choice Forms

    School Choice forms are available online, or at the John Stanford Center. Visit our School Choice for Open Enrollment webpage for more information.

    Reviewing Your Student’s 2019-20 School Assignment

    Next year’s assignments are available in the Assignment Lookup Tool. Please note that your child’s school assignment may have changed due to new school boundaries and the opening of new schools in Fall 2019. To view your child’s assignment, you will need your child’s date of birth and student ID number. You can find your child’s student ID by contacting Admissions or checking your student's record on The Source.
