The process of requesting enrollment at an Edmonds School District school that it different than the assigned neighborhood school. 

Choice Transfer

This application is required annually for all students attending a school district that is not their neighborhood district. At this time, Edmonds School District is no longer accepting NEW applications to transfer into the district from other school districts. 

The process of requesting a choice transfer for enrollment or continued enrollment at a school district that is different from the assigned school and district based on home address.

  • Students who live outside of Edmonds School District may request enrollment in the district once they receive a waiver from their district of residence. NEW nonresident students to Edmonds School District are required to also complete the P-138 School Change application listed above. 
  • Current nonresident students who have been previously approved to attend one of Edmonds schools must complete the Choice Transfer application annually as it is required by the Superintendent Office of Public Instruction (OSPI). 
  • Edmonds School District residents may request choice transfers in order to enroll in another school district but should consider contacting that district for their process of accepting nonresident students.
