Posted on 12/14/2022

Secondary Student Non-Resident Applications Are Due by January 10, 2023.

The Puyallup School District is in the process of projecting enrollments and assigning staff for junior high schools and high schools for the 2023-2024 school year. For students who reside outside of the Puyallup School District boundary (non-residents), applications to attend Puyallup schools must be renewed each year (Choice Transfer Request from the resident district with Non-Resident Application).

If you intend on having your child attend junior high or high school in the Puyallup School District next year, you are required to submit a 
Choice Transfer Request for the 2023-24 school year from your resident district and submit a new Secondary Non-Resident Application for EnrollmentThe Puyallup School District secondary non-resident application can be accessed here in English and here in Spanish. Please email completed applications to [email protected] or mail to 302 2nd St SE, Puyallup, WA  98372.

You may submit the Choice Transfer Request and Secondary 2023-2024 Non-Resident Application for Enrollment starting December 10, and for optimal consideration, please submit the required paperwork by January 10. If the application is received after January 10 or is not complete, the next due dates for processing are April 12 and June 1, 2021. Applications received after June 1 may not be reviewed until after the fourth day of school in September.

Non-resident applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis and approvals are based on the following criteria:

1. A Choice Transfer Request has been submitted from the resident district.
There is adequate capacity in the school and grade in which attendance is being requested.
The admission does not cause a hardship on resident students.
The school in which the student applicant wishes to attend offers a program that is suitable to meet the educational and other needs of the student without causing a financial burden to the district.
The student’s attendance will not likely create a risk to health or safety of other students or staff.
Transportation to and from school will be the responsibility of the parent(s) or guardian(s).

Each completed application will be date-stamped when received. Incomplete applications will not be considered received until complete. Please be advised that current non-resident students will be withdrawn from their school and inactivated from the Puyallup School District if a Choice Transfer and Non-Resident Application for Enrollment are not received by the last day of school.

Applications and due dates for non-resident elementary students will be available later this winter.
