    Open Enrollment for School Choice for the 2021-22 school year is February 1 - 19, 2020 for students currently enrolled in Seattle Public Schools. Open Enrollment is the annual period where students may apply to attend a different school or program next year. 

    School Choice forms are available on the SPS website www.seattleschools.org/admissions/registration. Please note: choice forms will be available online February 1, 2021. Choice forms received after February 19, 2021 will not be eligible for tiebreaker consideration but will be placed in the order received and by lottery number.


    The school choice period continues until May 31, but on-time applications are those received during Open Enrollment (Feb. 1-19) and will be processed with applicable tiebreakers. Choice applications are accepted through May 31 but are not eligible for priority tiebreakers. See the registration site for tie breakers.  Open Enrollment results are typically available online in April. 

    Who needs to complete a School Choice form during Open Enrollment?

     - All current SPS students who do NOT want to attend their reference area school or who would like a different program.  8th grade students will automatically be assigned to a high school in their reference area.  If you do not want to attend your assigned high school, you must complete a choice form. 

     - Current HCC eligible 8th grade students pathway assignments are automatic.  However, if you want to attend a different high school, you will need to complete a high school choice application.
