11. Would a second class ever be added?
We will add a second class as soon as we have a sufficient number of registrations. For the 2013-2014 school year, six all-day classes and five half-day classes were added after the initial registration period.
12. What happens if the half-day program at my home school is full?
If the half-day program is full at your home school, and there are not enough students to add another class, the Shoreline School District will determine an appropriate half-day placement for your child, and transportation will be provided. The district is required to provide a half-day program for all students in the district.
13. What happens if the all-day program at my home school is full?
All-day kindergarten is an optional program. If we have enough students to add an additional class of 23, we will. We will keep your student on the wait list at your home school. You may apply for a resident transfer to another school that has room in their all-day program if the half-day program will not work for you.
14. What if I want my child to go to a different school in Shoreline?
You need to register at your home school and complete a Resident Transfer form and submit it to the Shoreline School District Instruction office. The Resident Transfer form may be downloaded from the Shoreline website (www.shorelineschools.org), District Information, Enrollment. If your resident transfer request is granted, you are required to transport your child to & from school.
15. What if I live outside of the Shoreline School District?
Registration for students living outside of the Shoreline School District will begin on Monday, February 3rd. You must register at the Instruction office (18560 – 1st Ave NE). At the end of the day on February 12th, we will have a drawing to determine your place on the wait list. You will need to complete a Non-Resident Transfer form, which may be downloaded from the Shoreline website. If your non-resident transfer request is granted, you will be required to transport your child to & from school.
16. If I submit a resident or non-resident transfer request, when will I receive an answer?
You will be notified no later than April 18, 2014.
17. Is there before and after school care?
There is before and after school care available at all school sites. After school care begins at the end of the full day of school. Please contact the Shoreline Children’s Center at 206.393.4256 for information about the cost and to register.
