Enroll Your Student
Please do not email your enrollment documents. Instead follow the entire remote enrollment process and upload the documents via our secure portal.
Prepare and save all documents required to upload to the secure portal in the same folder on your computer.
- Residency Documents
- Enrollment Packet and Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS form 20-21)
- Any Additional Required Documents that apply to your individual student(s)
- Any Additional Required Forms that apply to your individual student(s)
- Upload Your Documents
All families are required to establish residency prior to student enrollment by providing 2 bullet items from Residency Checklist.
You will need to provide the full documents (scanned, PDF or photo of full document), please save the documents with your student’s full name. Save these documents to your computer using this naming format – LAST NAME (all capital), first names of all students you are enrolling: for example: SMITH-KELLY, John, Joe, Sue.
Do you have at least two bullet items from the Residency Checklist?
- If yes, you may continue with the enrollment process.
- If no, please continue with the enrollment process and upload the residency documents you currently have with your enrollment packet. Student Placement will contact you to complete a residency agreement giving you additional time to collect and provide the remaining documents. Once you have signed the residency agreement, your student’s enrollment documents can be processed.
Save these documents to your computer using this naming format – LAST NAME (all capital), first names of all students you are enrolling: for example: SMITH-KELLY, John, Joe, Sue
If you do not have PDF/electronic versions of the documents we accept (see above), there are several free apps that will convert photos to a scan document using your mobile device. A free easy to use app called “Scannable” is available in your app store. You can also take pictures of all your documents. We understand that is a very time-consuming process. If you do need to take pictures, please make sure that the documents are centered in the frame of the picture, that the document is as clear as possible (not dark) and that all the fields are readable.
You can also copy and paste pictures into a word document and save it as a PDF using the naming format above.
Tip: You can login (or create and login) to your Puget Sound Energy (PSE) account, download and save 2 months of bills as a PDF from your payment history to upload.
Enrollment Packet and Certificate of Immunization Status
After you have collected and saved your residency documents in the same folder on your computer, download the Enrollment Packet and Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS form 20-21).
IMPORTANT: Before filling out these forms, download and save them to your computer (the fillable features are not compatible in some browsers).
- Enrollment Packet 2020-2021: English (PDF) / Spanish (PDF) / Simplified Chinese (PDF)
- Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS form 20-21): English (PDF) / Spanish (PDF) / Simplified Chinese (PDF)
An important note on immunizations:
- A new Washington State Law requires all students starting school in September 2020 have their Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) form signed by a doctor. If your student has received all their immunizations in Washington State, you may be able to simply download your student’s immunization form from the Washington State Department of Health website here. If you do not have a medically signed immunization form, please reach out to your student’s doctor to arrange for vaccinations; it is our understanding pediatricians are still vaccinating students. If you can quickly get in, wait to enroll until you have the vaccinations.
Save the enrollment packet on your computer, in the same folder you saved your residency documents, and rename it using this naming format: School year LAST NAME, first name, grade enrollment. Example: 2020-2021 SMITH-KELLY, John 10th grade enrollment
- Tip: if you have more than one student to enroll, complete and save the entire packet first and then Save As the completed packet with your next student’s name using the same naming format (2020-2021 SMITH-KELLY, Joe 8th grade enrollment). Then update the form with the second student’s unique information.
- IMPORTANT: you will upload each student separately. Residency documents need to be uploaded for each student.
The enrollment packet requires signatures in several places. The forms can be signed using a digital signature.
- If you are completing the enrollment packet on a computer which is the recommended method, first save the enrollment packet to your computer (the signature box features are not compatible with some browsers).
- Click into the signature box and follow the steps that are provided.
- A “Save As” box will appear after each signature asking if you want to replace the document each time a signature is required – select YES .
- If you are completing the enrollment packet on your phone, please use the pen feature to sign each document. Please note, some phone operating systems will not allow you to upload all the required documents. Contact at email@example.com if you are having difficulty uploading your forms or do not have access to a computer.
