Home-based instruction (homeschooling)
Declaration of Intent to Provide Home-Based Instruction must be filed annually
If you are a family who intends to provide your child or children home-based instruction in lieu of attendance or enrollment in a public school, an approved private school, or an extension program of an approved private school, you must file an annual declaration of intent to do so. The Declaration of Intent to Provide Home School Instruction can be obtained at our school district’s Resource Center on the third floor or downloaded here. For additional information, please contact Pam Brown or Rick Burden.
Attending a school other than the assigned neighborhood school
Students who live in the district
Students who live within the district can apply for a variance to another school, if there is space available at that other school. See the Closed Schools List to determine where there is space available. For more information about transferring between schools within Lake Washington School District, contact your neighborhood school.
Students who live outside the district
If a student lives outside the district, they may attend Lake Washington School District schools, if those schools are open. A Choice Transfer application (also known as between district transfer application) is required and space must be available at the school the student wants to attend. If the desired school is listed as open, the Choice Transfer application must be obtained and turned in to the home district in which the family lives to initiate the process. A student living in Lake Washington School District may also attend a different public school district if space is available there. Both types of transfer require the Choice Transfer application. For more information on transfers between districts, contact Pam Brown at 425-936-1283. Learn more about between district transfers here.
