Priorities for School Placement

The district is committed to providing the maximum educational opportunity for each student and supports the parents' freedom to make choices affecting the lives of their family by providing enrollment options for its students, both In-District and Out-of District.

First priority will always be given to district residents attending their attendance area school. Requests for enrollment at a school outside the student's attendance area shall be prioritized as follows:



  1. Children of full-time school employees. 
  2. Students who have moved within the Richland School District boundary and wish to remain at their current school.
  3. Students who receive child care in the school attendance area (Elementary students only). 
  4. Siblings of students currently enrolled in a non-attendance area school. 
  5. Students making new In-District transfer requests for enrollment in a non-attendance area school.



1. Non-resident students requesting enrollment in a Richland school:

  • Children of full-time school employees
  • Students who attended the requested school last year.
  • Students who have child care provided in the requested school attendance area. (Elementary only)
  • Siblings of students currently enrolled at the requested school.
  • Students currently attending school in the Richland School District moving up to 6th or 9th grade.
  • Students making new Out-of District transfer requests.

Transfer requests received after the open enrollment period ends will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis as space is available.



In the event that an overload situation occurs at a particular school, the District reserves the right to administratively transfer students to another school with available classroom space.
