The Bellevue School District is continuing to monitor weather conditions for Friday, December 2. Families and staff will be notified on or before 6 am. Learn more about inclement weather and potential closure reminders.

This application is to be completed by the parent/guardian/custodian of current or past BSD students wishing to apply to private school(s) in grades kindergarten through 12th grade.

Before you begin this process:

  • For current students, please check your student’s academic records by using your ParentVUE account prior to requesting records. You can find report cards under the ‘Documents” tab. If any changes need to be made, you need to work with your student’s school prior to submitting a request for records.
  • You will need to know your student’s ID number. You can find it on your ParentVUE account under the ‘Student Info” tab or on the report cards under the ‘Documents’ tab.
  • For former students, if you wish to review your student’s academic records before the Records Department provides them to the private school(s), please reach out to the Records Department by providing the information requested on this page:  https://bsd405.org/departments/records/student-records/   If you do wish to review your student’s records, please do not begin the private school application process until after your review the records. We will not be able to retract any records once provided to a private school.
  • All private school applications will be handled by the Records Department. Bellevue School District schools will not provide student records for private school applications.
  • Please use the privateschoolapps@bsd405.org email address for any Administrator Forms to be completed. The Records Department will complete these forms however, if the forms involve teacher recommendations or observations, it will be routed to the appropriate school to complete. This will add additional processing time. The Records Department will advise you by email if this is required.

Timing:

  • Please allow a minimum of two (2) weeks to process your request. During periods of high volume (i.e. during peak application periods) or when the District is closed (i.e. Thanksgiving, winter break, snow closures), it will take longer. Please keep this timeline in mind when you submit your records request. After we provide your student’s record to the schools to which they are applying, you will receive a confirmation email.  Thank you for your understanding and patience.
  • You can speed up the process by ensuring you have reviewed your student’s academic records on ParentVUE prior to requesting records.  If there are changes that need to be made after you have submitted a request for records, you will need to submit the request again and your request will be placed at the bottom of the queue.
  • We will provide copies of 1st semester report cards after they are available to us which is usually after they are visible on ParentVUE.  Please note, private schools are aware of the timing of our school calendar and understand that report cards are not available until after many application deadlines.  There is no need to contact us regarding report cards.
  • We understand you are eager to move forward with your student’s application; we process private school applications in the order received.  We kindly request that you refrain from sending multiple messages, as this can create confusion and may result in a delayed response.  Thank you for your patience and understanding and for giving us the time to respond to your request.
