2019-2020 School Year
The Kent School District is no longer accepting transfer applications for the 2019-2020 school year unless the transfer is requested due to a recent move, childcare need, or program.
Transportation Not Provided for Transfer Students
Transportation is not available for students approved for transfer to a non-boundary school. Transportation will be the responsibility of the family.
Transfers Not Approved for Athletic Reasons
Transfer requests will not be approved for athletic or co-curricular activity reasons. As per WIAA regulations, students transferring from one high school to another high school within the Kent School District, without a corresponding change in home residence with natural parents or legal guardians, will be deemed ineligible for a one-year period at the varsity level of sports.
Kindergarten Students Must Register at Boundary School First
Kindergarten students should register at their boundary school prior to requesting a transfer.
Non-Residents Must Complete Form from Boundary District
All non-resident transfers must obtain a Choice Transfer/Release of Attendance from their boundary school district.
