Dear Bellevue School District Community:

The Open Transfer, Choice Schools and Choice Programs application period for the 2024-2025 school year will take place from Monday, December 11, 2023, to Friday, January 19, 2024. For families with a student currently enrolled in the BSD, who would like to remain at their current school, choice school, choice program or continue in their approved transfer feeder pattern for the 2024-2025 school year, no action is required. For currently enrolled families who are not Bellevue residents, nonresident paperwork will need to be submitted when requested by the Student Placement office.

Nonresident families may also apply to a BSD school and will be added to a waitlist for consideration after all resident students have been placed.

Only one application may be submitted per student for one of the following schools:
