The basis for admission and assignment in Seattle Public Schools is the student’s principal place of residence. The student’s principal place of residence is the home, house, apartment, facility, structure, or location, etc. where the student lives the majority of the time. Generally, the residence of a student is the principal residence of his or her parent(s) or legal guardian(s). It is this address that determines the student’s designated school and transportation eligibility, as well as any applicable tiebreakers during Open Enrollment for School Choice.
