Frequently Asked Questions
How long will it take to complete the Online Enrollment?
The process will take approximately 20-30 minutes. You can save as you go and do not have to complete it all in one sitting.
Why so much paperwork?
The specific paperwork required for enrollment has not changed in moving from a paper-based system to this online system. State law and district policy requires that we verify the birthdate of the enrolling student, the student’s proof of residency, and that the student is fully immunized (or has the appropriate exemption).
When can my student start school?
Enrollment is always open for the Current School Year and Enrollment for the upcoming Fall opens in February of the same calendar year. If you are enrolling your student after the first day of school, once the application has been processed and you have taken the required documents to your school, you will be provided with the start date for your student.
What grade should my student be in?
When entering your student’s date of birth, the system will automatically select the appropriate grade level for your student.
Reminder: Children must be five years old by August 31st in order to enroll for Kindergarten. Please see Regulation 3110 for more information.
I want to enroll my student for the next school year, however the form puts the wrong grade in for my student. Why?
Online enrollment for the next school year typically opens during February of the same calendar year. The New Student Enrollment process assigns students to the grade level that matches their date of birth. In the case of an incoming Kindergartener, the current grade level would be P4. There is no need to update the grade level, as you will have the opportunity to select which school year you are enrolling your student for. Once you select to enroll for the next school year, the system will automatically update the Expected Grade Level to next year’s grade level (in the case of an incoming Kindergartener, the Expected Grade Level will be K1).
How do I know which school my student will attend?
All new students will enroll in their home school. To verify which school your student will attend, please contact our Transportation Department at 425-837-6330 or email transportation-Enews@issaquah.wednet.edu with your home address to determine your school
I see my information is already in Step 2, but some of it has changed. Why can’t I change it?
For families who already have a student enrolled in the Issaquah School District and have logged in via Family Access, all the family information will prepopulate into the application for you. In the event any existing information is incorrect or has changed, only the Registrar at your student’s school can change it. Please contact a school in which you have a student attending to update any incorrect information. These corrections will automatically update for all of your children.
After submitting my online application for this year, how long will it take for my student to start school?
Please allow up to 3 school days for the school registrar to process an application for the current school year. Please visit our Calendars page for specific dates when schools will be closed. Applications submitted during the summer will be processed when office staff return to the schools in August. Once the application has been processed and you have taken the required documents to your school, you will be provided with the start date for your student.
I’ve submitted an application for next school year, when will I hear from you again?
Please allow up to 2 – 3 weeks for the school registrar to process your next year application. Applications will only be processed on days when schools are open. Please visit our Calendars page for specific dates when schools will be closed. Applications submitted during the summer will be processed when office staff return to the schools in August. You will receive an email when your application is approved.
