2018-19 SCHOOL YEAR
NEWSWORTHY: The Sumner School District is revising boundaries to create an attendance area for the District’s new elementary school and to address increased enrollment. Boundary changes will be effective for the 2018-19 school year. Families impacted by the boundary revisions, who wish to stay at the same school for the 2018-19 school year and subsequent years, need to submit a one-time waiver application during the application window Jan. 2-31, 2018. A “grandfathered” choice will be available on the application allowing us to quickly identify families who meet this criteria. This process provides families the right to continue to have their child (and siblings) attend their grandfathered school until graduation from their grandfathered school. Upon graduation from the grandfathered school, the student would be required to attend the school assigned to their resident address.2018-19 Inter-District (Out-of-District) Waiver PDF Application2018-19 Intra-District (In-District) Waiver PDF Application2018-19 Intra-District (In-District) Waiver ONLINE Application

Decisions to accept or deny applications will be based on grade level and building capacity.2017-18 Inter-district (out of district) Waiver Application (for students on existing waivers)
