Transferring Out of the Bellevue School District

Bellevue School District students wanting to transfer to another District

If you live in the Bellevue School District and wish to transfer to a school in another District or to an approved Washington State online program offered through another public school district, please complete the Choice Transfer Request Form and email it to studentplacement@bsd405.org.

Contact the desired school or program to find out if they are accepting new nonresident students and learn about their application process (each district has their own application and enrollment process). Releasing your student with a Choice Transfer Request (CTR) does not guarantee acceptance by the other school district. The new school district will notify you by email if your CTR has been approved or denied. If your student is approved you must withdraw your student from their current school in preparation for their transfer to the new district.
