    Open Enrollment for School Choice Feb. 3 - 14, 2020

    Each student in Seattle Public Schools is assigned to a school based on where that student lives. Students may apply to attend a different school through the School Choice Process, which begins February 3.

    If your student is currently attending an option school or another school that is not their attendance area school by choice, they can continue at this school until the highest grade offered without having to apply again. If your student is currently attending an option school but wishes to attend a neighborhood school in 2020-21, they will need to apply through the School Choice process.

    Applying for Another School

    If you are interested in requesting either an attendance area school or option school, other than your assigned school, you must submit a School Choice form. Only forms submitted during Open Enrollment Feb. 3 - 14, will receive tiebreakers such as the sibling tiebreaker which gives siblings priority in admissions.

    Families are encouraged to apply during the Open Enrollment window. Applications received after Open Enrollment are date stamped and priority is based on the date in which the application is received. School Choice forms are available online during the Open Enrollment window, or at the John Stanford Center.

    The results of Open Enrollment for the 2020-21 school year will be available online in April.

    More information is available on the School Choice webpage.
