(Dis)Enrollment, Notices, Complaints and SB 75 SB 75 prohibits charters from discouraging any pupil from seeking to enroll, or encouraging existing pupil to dis-enroll for any reason including academic underperformance, EL status, socioeconomics, disability, foster status, homelessness, race or ethnicity, gender identity or sexual orientation. This applies even when a parent or student merely seeks information about the school (e.g., attends informational meeting or picks up enrollment materials), applies for enrollment, and when actually enrolled. When is the application available? Applications will be available Fall 2020.
Where can I apply? You have two options: 1) Apply online beginning Fall 2020. (This is the quickest and fastest way to apply!)
2) Visit us in-person at 500 Oregon Street. Due to the high levels of traffic during dismissal, for enrollment purposes our office is available from: 8am - 2pm on Monday - Thursday 8am - 11am on Friday If these times do not work, please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Laura @ 707.805.7038
When is the last day to submit an application? The last day to submit an application for the 2020-2021 academic year was February 15, 2020. What happens after I apply? We will have the student lottery on March 5th, 2020. The lottery is done at random; you do not have increased chances of admittance if you apply early or later.
How does the lottery system work? If the Charter School receives a number of applications that exceed the number of available seats at any given grade level, a random public lottery will be hosted. The public random drawings shall be conducted in stages in accordance with the following preferences in the priority order listed below. These preferences are authorized in accordance with applicable law and will be given to students consistent with Education Code section 47605(d)(2)(B) in this order:
Siblings of students admitted to or attending the Charter School*
Children of Caliber Schools: K-8 Charter teachers and staff
Children of Caliber Schools Board members
Children of Founding Family members
Children who are residents of the District and eligible to receive free or reduced price meals
*Siblings include biological siblings, as well as children in non-traditional families, including children of domestic partners, step-siblings, adoptive (both formal and non), and school age children living in the same household. Families are encouraged to contact the front office with questions in this area. How will I learn the results for the lottery? Families will receive either a text or email immediately following the lottery with the results.
What happens if I'm not accepted from the lottery? Students who are not offered admission from the lottery will automatically be placed on a waitlist.
