Attendance Waiver Deadline


Resident students who wish to attend a school other than their resident school must complete the In-District Waiver Application.  In-District Waiver Applications are not required each year for continued attendance unless transitioning to another school. (Example: Elementary to Middle School, or Middle School to High School).


For students residing outside of the Sumner School District Attendance Boundaries, an Out-of-District Waiver Application is required. A Choice Transfer Request (Release of Attendance form) from the resident district is also required with the Out-of-District Waiver Application. Out-of-District Waiver Applications are required each year for continued attendance.


For students wanting to transfer out of the Sumner School District, a Choice Transfer Request must be submitted to District Administration.
