The Mercer Island School District’s intra-district elementary transfer process is designed to provide families with an opportunity to apply for their child to attend a school in a different home school boundary area based on a unique set of circumstances.
Transfer requests will be accepted now through April 30 and may be granted as described in Policy 3131 if the requested elementary school, and/or the grade level within the school, has not reached capacity as determined by the district.
If classroom space allows for transfers and if transfer requests exceed space available, transfers will be approved by a lottery system conducted by the district. If the district grants a transfer request, the family is responsible for transportation and supervision to and from any school outside of their neighborhood attendance area.
The form is available at https://tinyurl.com/c3ffmc69. For families with more than one child, they will need to complete a separate form for each child. Families will be notified within 45 days as to the status of their request.
