Mandarin (Jing Mei) Dual Language Enrollment Procedure

BSD Procedures Pertaining to Student Enrollment

Below is the wording  pertaining to BSD Procedure 3120.1P with regards to Choice School Enrollment.  To access this document with embedded links please click here.  In an instance where the procedure varies for a specific Choice School or Program, a link to the specifics for that school is provided in this document.

General

Admission to the Choice Schools and Programs offered through the Bellevue School District will be granted on a space available basis to those students selected under this Procedure.  Current Choice Schools and Programs are:  Bellevue Big Picture (primary admission in 6th grade), International School (primary admission in 6th grade), Jing Mei – Mandarin Dual Language (primary admission in kindergarten), Puesta del Sol – Spanish Immersion (primary admission in kindergarten), Lake Hills, Sherwood Forest and Stevenson – Spanish Dual Language (primary admission in kindergarten)

At the discretion of the principal in conjunction with the Student Placement Office, each school may admit students into grades other than their entry grade (6th grade or kindergarten).

Generally, once admitted into a Choice School or Program, the student may remain in the program through graduation unless the student moves out of the Bellevue School District.

If a student is withdrawn from a Choice School or Program for any reason, the student may forfeit his/her place at the school.  Should the student wish to apply for readmission at a later date, the family must establish residency in the District and, if there is no waiting list and there is capacity in the requested grade, the student may be readmitted at the principal’s discretion.  Students in language-based programs will need to be evaluated for their language proficiency prior to being readmitted.

Who may apply

  1. All applicants applying to a Choice School or Program must be residents of the Bellevue School District at the time of application.

  3. For the purpose of this Procedure, the nonresident children of full-time employees of the Bellevue School District shall follow the procedure set forth for residents of the Bellevue School District. These students must submit an Interdistrict Transfer Application their first year in the school and a Choice Transfer Form each year they are enrolled in the Bellevue School District.
  4. In accordance with State Law, the children of any full-time employee at a Choice School or in any of the schools with a Choice Program will be admitted if the employee so requests. The student may remain in the school or program until graduation regardless of the parent’s employment status. The overall enrollment target for the grade level shall be raised by one for each such student enrolled in the school or program in any given year.
  5. If there is space available after all resident students have been placed, nonresident students may be offered the opportunity to apply. The school and/or District websites will indicate if the school is accepting applications from nonresident students for the upcoming school year.

  7. Per State Law and District Policy 3110, a child must be 5 years old on or before August 31 of the year of entry to kindergarten. Early entrance testing is available only to Bellevue School District Residents and children of District employees as outlined in District Policy 3110. Underage students whose names are selected via the lottery may only enroll if they qualify through early entrance testing.  Being selected via the lottery is not a valid reason to appeal the early entrance assessment should your child not pass.

Sibling Guarantee

  1. Resident applicants who have an older sibling attending the desired Choice School or Program may opt, during the application process, to guarantee, to the extent available at the school, their enrollment (sibling guarantee) by providing a sibling name when completing their application to the school or program. (Kindergarten programs only guarantee siblings up to 50% of their incoming class; please use the links below for more detailed information.)
  2. When invoking the sibling guarantee, it is understood that, if selected, the siblings will attend the school or program together for a minimum of one school year. This applies to applicants of any grade.  If a family does not wish to invoke the sibling guarantee, at the time of application they should not provide the name of a sibling in the program.
  3. If, during the one-year period of dual enrollment, the sibling first admitted to the Choice School or Program makes a discretionary transfer to another school, the student admitted by the sibling guarantee will be added to the bottom of the waiting list. If there are applicants above him/her on the waiting list, the sibling must transfer to another school at the end of the semester for middle and high school programs and following a school break for elementary school programs. The applicant next on the waiting list will be offered enrollment following the guidelines in the Waiting List Procedure and Admission from the Waiting List described below.
