The information in the article below is specific to kindergarten. However, please note that you may also register students new to the Edmonds School District in grades 1-12 on February 11 or after. Please don’t delay! Plan on registering your student sooner rather than later.

The state of Washington provides funding for a part time kindergarten program. In our district, students attend five days per week in either a morning or afternoon session. There is no charge to parents for this program.
If there is enough interest and funding, we also offer a full time kindergarten program where students attend school for a full school day 5 days a week. This program is funded in part by parent paid tuition, which will be approximately $3,700 in 2013-2014. There may be limited financial aid available to families who qualify at the free/reduced lunch income level. Please bring a recent paystub, proof of unemployment, etc., with you if you are considering applying for financial aid.
Full Time Kindergarten Lottery: In order to make the process for those interested in every day kindergarten equitable to all, our school will conduct a lottery if there are more students interested than space available by March 11. You may enter the lottery between February 11 and March 8. Parents will be notified via email and/or US mail with lottery results by March 15 after the lottery is drawn on March 11.
If you have additional questions, please contact the school office at ____________________, or call Shelley Roehl at 425-431-7176. Shelley can also answer your questions about early entrance procedures if your child turns 5 between September 1 and December 31, 2013.
