Elementary School Change Information

NOTE: If you are moving to a new service area that belongs to your address, a School Change Application is not needed. Simply go to that school to register directly.

  • Requests for School Change at District elementary schools for the 2019-2020 school year will be reviewed by the Assistant Superintendent for Elementary Education. Applications will be reviewed by May 30, 2019 and then again by August 20, 2019. Please be specific with your reason for requesting a school change. While we welcome your application and interest, there is no guarantee of approval.

    The requests below may be approved before May 30 and August 20:
    As required by the state of Washington, children of eligible full time employees of the Edmonds School District
    Approved if there is space available at the time the requests was submitted, siblings of:
    Previously approved School Change students (this student must also attend the school change school in 2019-2020)
  • Students who are/will be enrolled in a Challenge, Consolidated Health, or special education self-contained classroom within the District

To apply for School Change, please submit a P-138, School Change Application 2019-20 after January 30, 2019 (access the link here to obtain a form) and submit as shown below:

Important Notes:

  • If approved for a change of schools, parents are responsible for transportation to and from the new school
  • This process does not apply to Madrona K-8, Maplewood K-8, or Edmonds Heights K-12. Please contact these schools directly for their entry guidelines.
  • Students who are accepted to change schools may continue to attend that school and the middle or high school the elementary school feeds into without reapplying for future years unless District attendance boundaries are changed. If a boundary change is needed, procedures will be created to address School Change students at the school(s) affected by the change.
  • Parents of out-of-district students will be contacted prior to final approval to obtain a Choice Transfer Request (CTR) from their resident school district. The CTR will be required to the beginning of each school year that the student is enrolled in the Edmonds School District. Failure to submit a yearly CTR may result in the withdrawal of your child from the Edmonds School District.
  • Students may be asked to return to their neighborhood school if there are issues with attendance, discipline, tardiness, or late pick-up from the approved school

What if your School Change Application is denied? A parent receiving a District letter of denial has ten (10) school days after receipt to submit an appeal outlining special hardship circumstances to:
