new student enrollment

Welcome to the New / Returning Student Enrollment module!

  • We are excited to offer our online New / Returning Student Enrollment module to parents and guardians looking to enroll their students into the Bainbridge Island School District.

    Our online module will allow you to get started enrolling your student as efficiently and easily as possible.  If you do not have access to a computer, please contact Student Records at (206) 780-1354. Student Records will help provide resources to access a computer for the enrollment process. 

    Translate the BISD website: If you need language translation, you may use the Google translator located on the right of the page. Click the button, and select the language you prefer. After you select the language, Google Translate will pop up at the top of the webpage. English is the default, so you must select your preferred language again. You may have to continue repeating this process for each webpage you visit.

    Enrollment Tips:

    • Placement into the Bainbridge School District can not be finalized until all required documents have been received.
    • It is helpful to have the required documents available to upload BEFORE you start the online enrollment process. However, we understand that this isn't always possible. 
    • Know that once you submit your application for enrollment, you will no longer have access to upload documents.  If you are missing any of the required documents, our office staff will be reaching out to you for further information. 
    • If you have had student(s) previously enrolled in BISD, please use your BISD Skyward Family Access login information for enrollment. If you do not remember your login information, please follow this link to reset your password. If you are still unable to access your login information, please click here to create a temporary account. 

    Required Documents:

    • Copy of your child's birth certificate (or legal document such as a passport)
    • Medically Verified Immunization Records 
    • Proof of Residency: You may submit a utility bill (from a utility service to the home), rental agreement or HUD statement (prices redacted). A driver license or cell phone bill is NOT an acceptable form of proof of residency. If you do not reside on Bainbridge Island, you can explore the nonresident student option
    • If none of the above options are available to you, please contact the school directly for alternative options. 

    Optional Document

    • Unofficial High School Transcript (current high school students only)

    If you are unable to upload the required documents, you may drop off copies to:

    • July - Mid August: Drop required document copies off at the BISD District Office, 8489 Madison Ave N, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110 (Note: Google Maps doesn't always provide the correct directions.

    • Mid August - June: Drop required document copies off at your children's school.
