Seattle Public Schools - Registration and Open House Information

Historically, the Seattle Public School District publishes a list of all upcoming Open House events for the area’s public schools each January. This is the one time of the year that many of Seattle schools will be open for touring, meeting staff and facility and offering families a chance to see inside each school.

Many schools offer multiple tour dates and check individual schools for last minute additions too. Open houses run from mid-January - February and vary by each school.

This is also the time of year that current students may apply for assignment to a different school through school choice - open enrollment. Information will be found on the Seattle Public School website. Open Enrollment for School Choice is offered in a very limited timeframe - No Exceptions. (even for families moving to the district after this date) - so keep on eye on the Seattle Public Schools website and start checking late Fall for the announcement of key dates.

If you child turned five (5) by August 31, of the upcoming school year, it is time to enroll in kindergarten. Registration for all new students including for kindergarten began early January and is ongoing through the school year.
