Enrollment Options

  • District Attendance Area Transfers (Open Enrollment)

    Bremerton School District’s Open Enrollment Policy #3130 allows elementary students to live in one school attendance area and attend school in another attendance area based on approval by Building Principal and the Superintendent. Parents must complete an Open Enrollment Application and submit it to desired school each year. Parents can determine their attendance area by using Infofinder.


    Choice Transfer

    Most students in Washington go to public schools that are closest to their homes. But parents and guardians have many enrollment options for their kids. Students can attend an approved private school, enroll in an Alternative Learning Experience program (such as an online school), be taught at home, etc. In some circumstances, they also can transfer to other schools within or outside the district in which they live. 


    Students who live outside the District’s boundaries are welcome to attend Bremerton School District Schools, as long as the school has sufficient space and parents are willing to provide transportation. A Choice Transfer Request from the student's resident district must be submitted and approved, before a student can be registered for classes. 


    For information, please reference Learning by Choice Student Enrollment Options in Washington or call Michelle Gatmen at 360-473-1006.
