|Due to overcrowding in Lake Stevens School District’s elementary schools, new enrollment for the 2015-16 school year is limited to those students who live within the school district boundaries. This means that new non-resident variances for elementary students—including kindergarten—will not be approved. This does not impact non-resident students who are already attending LSSD schools. (However, these students need to reapply annually, no later than June 1 of each year, in order to be granted admission.)|
Tuition-Based Full Day
Tuition based full day kindergarten is offered on a limited basis in all of our elementary schools. The tuition-based program is an option that is provided on a space-available basis and will be contingent upon sufficient enrollment to fill the class. The program is funded by a tuition fee that pays the difference between the state-funded program and the full-day (every day) kindergarten program. Tuition for the full-day program for the 2015-16 school year is $2,950.
Determination of eligibility for state-funded full-day kindergarten was based on an individual school’s free or reduced lunch percentage from October of the 2014-15 school year. Glenwood, Highland and Sunnycrest’s poverty percentages did not fall within the threshold set by the state to receive funding this coming school year.
Hillcrest, Mt. Pilchuck and Skyline families who paid the $150 deposit for full-day kindergarten will receive a refund check in the mail (to the mailing address we have on file) by the end of August.Students at Hillcrest, Mt. Pilchuck and Skyline will automatically enrolled in the full-day program at his or her respective school. Lake Stevens will offer families the opportunity to opt-out of the full-day schedule and attend morning sessions only. In these cases, families will be responsible for providing student transportation home from school.
A limited number of reduced-fee tuition spaces are available to students who qualify based on family income. The criteria used in determining this qualification follows the same guidelines as the free or reduced-price lunch program. The reduced tuition will be one-half of the regular tuition. If you think you might qualify for reduced-fee tuition, please complete the Reduced Tuition Application Form.
