MISD closed to new non-resident enrollment for 2016-17

March 28, 2016 – Mercer Island School District Superintendent Dr. Gary Plano announced that the district is closed to new non-resident student applicants, including students who were granted non-resident enrollment for the remainder of the 2015-16 school year after becoming nonresidents during this year, due to inadequate space, facilities and staff.

However, to avoid disruption to the educational programs of certain students and to encourage family involvement and support in the education of those children, the district does allow certain non-resident students to apply for nonresident status. According to Board Policy 3141, the district accepts certain non-resident students’ applications, if those students and their school-age siblings were previously enrolled under district policy prior to June 30, 2013.

As provided for in state law, children of district employees, children of its contracted services employees and children of military families are allowed to attend as non-resident students and must submit the appropriate application.
