School Attendance Areas

Schools will be designated as opened or closed based on space available prior to the Open Enrollment period. Open schools may have limited space available. Variances are accepted on a space available basis.

Priority order of variance approval
The district has a priority process for accepting variances when an open school / grade level receives more requests than the specific number of available spaces at that school. First priority is given to students with a concurrently enrolled sibling at the requested school. Should requests exceed spaces available, a lottery will be conducted. Should space remain, next priority is given to students who have attended a school which feeds into the requested school (i.e. split-feeder; district program; previously-approved variance). Should requests exceed places available, a lottery will be conducted. Should spaces remain, next priority is given to remaining variance requests. Should requests that remain exceed spaces available, a lottery will be conducted.

No variances will be accepted for the following school year prior to the Open Enrollment period, which begins February 1.

Staff residing outside of the district attendance boundary
In accordance with RCW 28A.225.270, a district shall permit the children of full-time certificated and classified school employees to enroll at:

    1. The school to which the employee is assigned;
    2. A school forming the district's K through 12 continuum which includes the school to which the employee is assigned; or
    3. A school in the district that provides early intervention services pursuant to RCW 28A.155.065 or preschool services pursuant to RCW 28A.155.070, if the student is eligible for such services.

Staff residing within the district attendance boundary shall also be permitted to avail themselves to this provision.

Closed school reconsideration
A family may appeal a denial of a variance. Special consideration will be given if a sibling would concurrently attend the requested school.

In all cases where a variance is approved, transportation to and from school becomes the responsibility of the parent or guardian. All requests for variances must have the approval of the parent or guardian.
