Enroll your student by Aug. 28 SPS urges
In order to ensure that all students in Seattle Public Schools have a school assignment by the first day of school Seattle Public Schools is urging families to enroll no later than Aug. 28.
The first day of school is Wednesday, Sept. 5.
If your family is new to Seattle Public Schools and your child has not yet enrolled you can submit an applications by mail, by email, or by visiting SPS at the John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence (JSCEE) at 2445 3rd Ave. S. You can find a map, driving directions, and bus routes to reach the John Stanford Center here. Downloadable enrollment applications can be found here.
Enrollment hours are 8:30 a.m.- 4 p.m. Monday-Friday.
“Those first few days in the classroom are so important, and we want to make sure all students have school assignments before the first day of school,” said Brandon Holst, JSCEE Services Manager. “It takes time to complete the enrollment paperwork, and the lines in our lobby grow longer as we get closer to the first day of school."
The JSCEE building will be closed Wednesday, Aug. 29 due to a district-mandated unpaid furlough day for all employees, one in a series of furlough days aimed at offsetting reductions in state education funding.
If your student is continuing enrollment at their assigned school you DO NOT need to visit the John Stanford Center. Families of current students who wish to transfer schools can submit their enrollment applications via email, by mail or by using the SPS 24-hour drop box located at the JSCEE south entrance, facing Lander Street.
