Early Childhood Special Education Preschool
Dear Mercer Island Family,
We want to welcome you to the Mercer Island School District. Thank you very much for taking the time to enroll your child in MISD.
To enroll, please see below for the required documentation including Residency Verification. When submitting your child's completed CIS (Certificate of Immunization Status) form, it must be medically verified, either signed by a physician's office or downloaded from the WA IIS with the physician's information. If your child does not have complete immunization records or is not in a conditional (temporary) status, your child will not be allowed to attend until this is completed. See the Immunization Requirements page for more details.
To begin registering for the 2023-24 school year click on the Online Enrollment process.
Enrollment for the 2023-24 school year will begin on Wednesday, February 1 for all grade levels.
Families with children currently enrolled can log in to their current Skyward Family Access account to enroll their preschool child.
Home Language Survey
As part of the online enrollment process, information from the Home Language Survey (HLS) is used to determine if testing is necessary for both foreign-born and U.S.-born English Language Learner students. Home Language Surveys translations can be found here. However, the HLS translations are for reference purposes only. Parents must fill out the English-language version of the Home Language Survey during their online enrollment process.
Before beginning online enrollment, parents must read the Establishing and Verifying Residency Form (3120 F1) and have the required documents outlined in it available to upload. The process will take approximately 20-30 minutes; parents can save as they go and do not have to complete it all in one sitting.
- Copy of Official Birth Certificate or Passport (Required for all Kindergarten and 1st-grade enrollments).
- Two (2) Proofs of Residency are required. - See 3120 F1 for acceptable forms of proof of residency.
- Completed Certificate of Immunization (CIS) is required. (Enrollment applications will not be processed until this form has been completed.) (See Immunization Requirements).
- Custody/Court Order if applicable
- Restraining Order if applicable
Reminder: Children who are five years old by August 31, 2023, will register for Kindergarten for the coming school year (see policy 3110), while children who are younger than this would be eligible for preschool services if they qualify for Special Education.
Washington State Law RCW28A.210.080 requires school-age children to receive specific immunizations in order to attend school. Proof of immunizations from a family physician or local health department is required. The parent/guardian needs to transfer this information to a Certificate of Immunization (CIS) form and sign the certificate to verify its accuracy and will upload a copy in the “Requested Documents” section of the online enrollment application. See the state Immunization Requirements.
