Seattle Public Schools Open Enrollment for the 2010-2011 school year began Monday, March 1 and runs through Wednesday, March 31, 2010. During Open Enrollment, families may register their child to enter SPS in fall 2010 and /or apply for a school other than their assigned school.
For the first time this year, current students in grades PreK-11 – and those who will be new to the district in fall 2010 and pre-registered before Jan. 15 – will get their assignment at the end of February.
Under the District's new student assignment plan, students currently enrolled are "grandfathered" through the highest grade of the school they currently attend, providing that services they need are available at that school.
Note that all applications received during this time are processed together at the end of March. Families who apply during Open Enrollment will receive their assignment at the end of May.
