Choice Transfers

  • Reminder, all following year requests will not be accepted until January of the requesting year. If you are requesting the 2019/2020 School Year, please wait until January 2019 to send your requests. They will not be accepted until then.

    I live within the Renton School District boundary and would like my child to attend school in a different school district:

    • Fill out a Choice Transfer Request Form, releasing your child from Renton School District to attend another district and submit it to the Renton School District at 300 SW 7th St, or
    • Fax the request to 425-204-2275, or
    • You may fill out the form electronically and e-mail it to To do so, you MUST download the form, fill it out, and save as a PDF before emailing it. You CANNOT fill-in the form within the browser as it will not save the information you entered.
    • There is also a SPANISH Choice Transfer Request available

    The Renton School District will submit the Choice Transfer Request electronically to the receiving district. You should receive an email showing the request has been submitted.  It is not considered complete until accepted or denied by the receiving district.  You will be notified by email when the next action is taken in the acceptance process.

    • If your student is currently enrolled in our District, please notify the school with the date that you will be withdrawing your student.
    • Your student must continue to attend the resident school until the effective start date of the transfer.  Nonattendance is subject to truancy procedures.
    • The Choice Transfer Request must be submitted annually.
