Enrollment FAQs

How do I enroll my student?

Determine the school your student will attend by entering your address into the school locator tool on our district website. Then, fill out our online enrollment form.

If your family is new to the district, you will create a new account to register your child. Once you have created an account, you will be emailed instructions for logging in and completing your online registration. If your family currently has a student in the district, you will log into Skyward Family Access using your current username and password.

I am unable to enroll online, what should I do?

If you don’t have access to a computer, laptop, smartphone or the internet, you are invited to visit your neighborhood school and enroll directly with the office staff. If you are unable to identify your local school, you can visit the district office (10903 Gravelly Lake Drive SW, Lakewood) and enroll there.

What do I need to enroll my student?

Enrollment can be completed using our online enrollment form. You will need to provide the following information as you complete the online enrollment form:

  • The school your student will attend
  • Doctor and dentist office contact information
  • Emergency contact information
  • Previous school address and phone number, if applicable

Once you have submitted the online enrollment form, you will be asked to provide the following documents:

  • Medically verified proof of Immunization signed by health care professional (enrollment cannot be processed until this is received by the school)
  • Proof of residence (i.e.: rental agreement or utility bill)
  • Your photo identification
  • Proof of age and legal name for kindergarten students (student’s birth certificate, passport, DSHS or medical records will be accepted)
  • Previous report cards or transcripts, if applicable

These documents can be uploaded to the online enrollment system or brought to the school building so copies can be made.

What if I do not have some of the required documents for enrollment?

You can submit the online enrollment form without providing all of the necessary documents. You can submit the documents you do not upload with the form to your child’s school so copies can be made.

What immunizations does my student need to attend school?

Washington state law requires children enrolling in public schools to present proof of immunity to specific communicable diseases. Changes to state law may impact a child’s ability to start school this year.

All newly submitted immunization documents must meet the medically verified standard. This means any new or updated immunization records turned in to the school must be from a health care provider, or a parent must attach paperwork from a health care provider to the handwritten form that shows a child’s records are accurate.

Additionally, students must receive all eligible vaccines before starting school. There is no longer a 30-day conditional/grace period. Specific immunization information is available on the district website and at all schools.

You can read more about the updated immunization requirements on the Department of Health website and view their examples of medically verified records flier in English and Spanish.
