School District announces changes to open enrollment status

Mercer Island School District Superintendent Dr. Gary Plano has announced that district enrollment is closed to new non-resident student applicants and applications from students who were granted non-resident enrollment for the remainder of the 2013-14 school year after becoming nonresidents during this year, due to inadequate space, facilities and staff.

The district does allow certain non-resident students to apply for nonresident status. According to Administrative Policy 3141, the district accepts certain non-resident students’ applications, if those students and their school-age siblings were previously enrolled under district policy prior to the 2013-14 school year.

As provided for in state law, children of district employees, children of its contracted services employees and children of military families are allowed to attend as non-resident students and must submit the appropriate application.
