    1. Are you interested in attending or continuing to attend an Everett Public School? Learn all about school transfers (variances).  To submit a school transfer request for Everett Public Schools, please submit through the Online School Transfer Form Application.  If you are a nonresident requesting to attend in Everett Public Schools, you must first submit a request for release from your resident school district.


    2. Are you a resident of the Everett Public Schools district, but wish to attend a school/program outside of the district?  Learn about district choice.  To be released from the Everett School District, please submit through the Choice Transfer Request Portal.

    Our Application Acceptance Timeline for Everett Public Schools opened for resident requests on January 3rd, 2023 for the 2023-2024 school year.  Choice transfer release requests from children of full-time certificated or classified employees, who are requesting enrollment in the employee's assigned school or a school forming the district's K-12 continuum which includes the school to which the employee is assigned, may be submitted starting February 15th, 2023.  All other choice transfer release requests may be submitted starting March 1st, 2023.  Our Online School Transfer Form Application has been updated to reflect a new form for the 2023-2024 school year. 

    Please review our All About School Transfers webpage for more detailed information, including a general timeline, process for reviewing requests and the appeals process.  There is a separate procedure for resident and nonresident students.  Applications for transfers for the current school year will be accepted only through March 31st of each school year. No new transfer requests for the current school year will be accepted after that date unless there is a recent change in the resident student’s address.  

    **The School Transfers Department only processes variance requests for the district.  The School Transfers Department does not process enrollment, records requests, registration or withdrawals for Everett Public Schools.  If you are in need of such a request, please contact your student's current or previous school for that request to be processed.  If you are a new student to Everett Public Schools, please follow the steps for enrollment under the PARENTS tab and Enrollment Information.  Please contact the school you are enrolling for further assistance.  Once enrolled in Everett Public Schools, a records request will be submitted to your student's previous school.**
