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 firstname.lastname@example.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.

The nonresident waitlist application period for the 2022-2023 school year is closed; most schools are at enrollment capacity. Few schools have limited space, please email email@example.com – requests will be considered by the school’s capacity and ability to serve your student’s needs on a case-by-case basis.
Nonresident applications for the 2023-2024 will be accepted beginning March 1, 2023.
You may ONLY submit one application, selecting one school. You will be able to indicate whether you are interested in other schools if space is available. If we are able to offer placement we will request nonresident paperwork at that time.
