Non-Resident Attendance 2023-24

While each request will be considered individually, approval of non-resident requests ultimately will be based on space availability in the grade or program requested.  As our enrollment numbers change throughout the year, our ability to accept non-resident applications may be impacted.

All three steps must be complete before the district will review  your child's application:

  1. Request a Choice Transfer/Release of Attendance from your RESIDENT school. In most cases, this process can be completed electronically through the online OSPI Choice Transfer Portal. If your resident school district does not support the OSPI Online Choice Transfer Portal, please contact them directly for a paper form.
  2. Complete the 2023-24 Steilacoom SD Request for Non-Resident Attendance form.
  3. Send the following documents to

Grades K-5
From the 2022-23 school year
(new requests only):

  • Report card
  • Attendance records
  • Discipline records 

Grades 6-12
From the 2021-22 AND 2022-23 school years
(new requests only):

  • Complete unofficial transcript
  • Attendance records
  • Discipline records 


NOTE: District bus transportation is NOT provided for approved non-resident students.
