Over the past year the Shoreline School District has been keeping a close watch on our increasing enrollment. While this is a positive sign after many years of declining enrollment this trend does present some challenges to our schools. As a result of:
Space constraints particularly at the elementary level
Anticipated future growth
the Shoreline School District has carefully come to the following decision:
In accordance with Policy 3141 and 3141P, in which admittance of non-resident students shall take into consideration classroom and program capacity to serve and not diminish educational opportunities and services to students of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park residents, the Shoreline School District is now closed to new non-resident boundary transfer applications for grades K-6 for the 2015-16 school year.
Current students with non-resident boundary transfers for the 2014-15 school year will be allowed to continue to attend the Shoreline School District unless the family moves or admission is revoked for the reasons identified in the notice of acceptance. The District will reevaluate enrollment capacity prior to the beginning of the 2015-16 school year. At that time siblings of students with current non-resident boundary exceptions will be given priority should space become available.
The District will continue to honor all statutory and contractual obligations relating to non-resident boundary transfer applications for the children of District employees.

Supporting A Positive School Climate
Many schools use various measures to maintain and bolster a positive school climate including ways to “catch” kids being good. This is very important because children pay attention to behaviors we point out to them, so we want to ensure that they are aware of the many positive examples that their classmates give every day as they make good choices.
This week, I will be talking to our students at lunch about our new Bluejay Feathers that staff will begin giving out after mid-winter break. Students can get a feather for following one of the 3 Big Rules: Be Responsible, Be Safe, Be Respectful.
These will be given to students in our common areas (hallways, playground, etc.) for being a great example for their classmates!
