District Enrollment Dates & Deadlines
Have an incoming kindergartener or are you new to Seattle Public Schools? Follow the two steps below. If you already have a student in SPS, but would like to move to Queen Anne Elementary, start with step 2.
Step 1: New Student Registration for the 2017-18 School Year is Now Open
New Student Registration is a general enrollment process. See the SPS Registration site for information on registering. If your neighborhood school is your first choice, your registration is complete.
Step 2: Open Enrollment for School Choice is Feb. 13th - 24th, 2017
If you're interested in having your child attend Queen Anne Elementary, the next step is to fill out the 2017-18 School Choice form. The form can be mailed, emailed or submitted in person at the John Stanford district headquarters in Sodo.
Sibling Reminder: If you have a student currently enrolled at Queen Anne Elementary and plan to send your other child/ren to QAE, you must complete the Open Enrollment for the incoming sibling(s).
Any enrollment forms received by Feb. 24th are treated the same. Forms received after Feb. 24th aren't given any tiebreaker priorities, making it less likely that you'll get into QAE or another option school.
Selection Process and Tie-Breakers:
The school district reviews all school choice forms submitted by the deadline and attempts to match students with their top choice. In the event, that there are more students than there are spots available, enrollment is determined by a series of tie-breakers. The are, in order:
The Queen Anne Elementary Geo Zone covers, roughly, all over Upper and Lower Queen Anne. See the QAE Geo Zone map for details.
If your student is initially on the waiting list when assignments are available on April 17th, they may eventually get a spot at QAE as other students decide on other schools or move out of the area (no guarantees though)!
The SPS Open Enrollment FAQ has a much more detail on the process.
