Change of Address or Withdrawal
Have you moved?
If you have recently moved it is important to update your address with Seattle Public Schools. If you do not update your address with the Admissions department, it may result in your student(s) being dropped at the end of the school year.
Will my Student Change Schools?
Your student may have to change school assignments based on when you move and where your new home is located. In general, students must change to their new attendance area schools if they are assigned to theirattendance area school, are not grandfathered, and they move to a new attendance area.
- If they move before the school year starts, they must change schools for the new school year.
- If they move during the school year, they may finish the year at their current school, but they must change schools the next year.
In all cases, reassignments are subject to any special education services a student may require.Detailed move rules are available in the Superintendent?s Procedures for Student Assignment 3130 SP. Visit the policy and procedure webpage to read the procedure.
Please review the Move Rules chart to determine whether your student needs to change schools based on where you reside currently. Move Rules Chart
