Public Random Drawing Procedures
We utilize a random lottery drawing to determine which students are accepted for enrollment. After all spots are filled, we continue to draw names in order to prioritize students on the waiting list.
The random lottery is performed by a public notary.
All grade levels are included in the lottery drawing.
The student numbers drawn and grade level information is posted on the school's website after the Lottery for the academic year.
If a family is not present at the Lottery event and the applicant’s number was selected the enrollment package is mailed. The family is contacted and advised of their selection and given 10 days to return the enrollment package.
When selected students miss their deadline to turn in enrollment package, waiting list applicants are called in order.
The Charter School shall admit all students who wish to attend the Charter School, and who submit a timely application; unless the Charter School receives a greater number of applications than there are spaces for students, in which case each application will be given equal chance of admission through a public random drawing process. Except as required by Education Code Section 47605(d)(2), admission to the Charter School shall not be determined according to the place of residence of the student or his or her parents within the State. Preference in the public random drawing shall be given as required by Education Code Section 47605(d)(2)(B). In the event of a drawing, the chartering authority shall make reasonable efforts to accommodate the growth of the Charter School in accordance with Education Code Section 47605(d)(2)(C). [Ref. Education Code Section 47605(d)(2)(A)-(C)]
