    Open Enrollment for School Choice is Feb. 4-15
    Posted on 12/13/2018
    School crestThe annual Open Enrollment period will be February 4–15 for all Seattle students and families to participate in the school choice lottery to apply to another school for the 2019-20 school year. This does not apply to students rising to 6th, 8th or 9th grade next year if they choose to remain at their designated middle or high school feeder pattern. During this period, students and families may apply to another attendance area school, program, or Option school.

    School choice applications processed by February 15 will be considered “on time” and will receive priority through the applicable tiebreakers:
    1) Sibling,
    2) Geozone (Option schools only) 
    3) Lottery number.

    Submissions after the 15th will not be given priority and will be placed at the bottom of the waitlist by lottery number and the date the choice form was received. The last day to submit a school choice application is May 31, 2019.

    Open Enrollment results and waitlist information will be sent to schools the first week in April, online by mid-April, and official assignment letters mailed to the families by the end of April.
