Interested in Enrolling at NWSOIL?
With a campus conveniently located in Tacoma, Washington; admission to the NWSOIL requires a referral from the student’s home (local) school district and students must have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 plan to be considered to our program. We are open to discussing our school program with parents, guardians and other agency personnel, although tours and placement needs to be scheduled with the students’ local school district.
Placement for prospective students comes to us through the Special Education/Student Services Department of their district. Once a school district has determined that all resources within the district have been exhausted in an effort to support a student, an out-of-district placement may be sought; NW School is one of those options, and we are an approved Non-Public Agency (NPA) through the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).
We are happy to work with interested parties and representatives in their home districts in an effort to provide easier navigation in what can be a complicated process. Districts require a Release of Information (ROI) to share records with the Northwest School of Innovative Learning, and this is completed via the appropriate district representative.
