    Enrolling Your Child 
    Oak Harbor Public Schools uses an online process to enroll new students. Prior to beginning the online application process, families are encouraged to have the required documents available to upload into the application.  The application can be saved throughout the process, but completing the application in one sitting expedites your request. Once submitted online, the completed application is available for school approval. For families with elementary students, it's important to know your child's school of residence prior to beginning registration.  If you don't know your neighborhood school or have questions, you can use our district Boundary Map, or call the Administrative Service Center at 360.279.5000.

    Out-of-District Choice Transfer Portal 
    The Choice Transfer Request Portal (CTRP) is used by many school districts in Washington State to process Choice Transfer requests. A Choice Transfer request is made when a student wants to attend a school outside of the school district where the student lives. For a Choice Transfer, the resident district must first release the student to start the transfer process. When you have completed your transfer application, your request will be sent to the resident school district.

Distance Learning and Hybrid Enrollment

  • Beginning April 26th, Hybrid students will begin their new schedule of in-person all day classes 4 full days a week.  Distance + students will continue with remote learning, but will transition to the new bell schedule to synchronize with the in-person students.  To view the new bell schedule beginning April 26th, click here.


    The Design of the School Year

    NWMS will start the school year in the Distance Plus model, with all instruction taking place online (except for select students who will receive special education services at school). After eight weeks (on November 16th), if coronavirus risk remains low, we will transition to a Hybrid Rotation model with students receiving in-person instruction two days per week. Families will still have the option to remain in Distance Plus. Students will either be in-person on Mondays and Tuesdays or Thursdays and Fridays. On Wednesdays, all students will receive online instruction.

    Student schedules will be different this year. Instead of taking six courses for 18 weeks (one semester), students will take three longer classes for nine weeks (one quarter). Students will have the same amount of total time in each class, just organized differently.

    Yearlong classes, like Math or English, will meet for two nine-week terms in order to get a year’s worth of learning time. Semester-long elective classes will meet for nine weeks and switch each quarter.

    A Typical School Day

    Each class will have daily assignments, daily attendance, a complete A-F grading scale, grade-level standards, and use district-adopted curriculum. There will be a daily schedule for classes, even in Distance Plus. Classes will start at 8:00 a.m. and end at 1:30 p.m. each day. 

    Students will have some contact and instruction directly with their teacher (synchronous learning) and some independent work (asynchronous learning), which may include activities away from the computer.

    Here are a few tips to promote student success during Distance+:

    • Log into your Google Classroom on time each day.
    • Complete daily assignments and track deadlines for long-term projects.
    • Remain in contact with your teacher, though Google Classroom and email.
    • Check Skyward regularly to be sure that attendance and assignments are recorded correctly.


    Chromebooks and School Supplies

    Once scheduled, a Chromebook, basic school supplies, and any necessary books can be picked up from our office during open hours. Hybrid students must bring their Chromebooks to school on in-person day.
