CCCS Admission Requirements
(from the CCCS Charter)
CCCS uses an open enrollment admission policy for all California students, and does not discriminate on the basis of residency, gender, gender expression, gender identity, sexual preference, disability, national origin, immigration status, ethnic or racial background, native language, religion or political belief, or any other characteristic that is contained in the definition of hate crimes set forth in Section 422.55 of the Penal Code or any other characteristics described in Education Code Section 220. In addition, CCCS attempts to maintain a balanced grade level configuration. The number of classes per grade level depends on enrollment. Multi-grade classes may be used. CCCS will maintain its status as a tuition-free, nonsectarian public school.
The application process is comprised of the following:
1. Parent/guardian attendance at school orientation meeting with the Principal
2. Completion of Interest form or Application
Applications will be accepted during a publicly advertised open enrollment period each Spring for enrollment in the following school year. Following the open enrollment period each year applications shall be counted to determine whether any grade level has received more applications than availability. In the event that this happens, CCCS will hold a public random drawing to determine enrollment for the impacted grade level, with the exception of existing students who are guaranteed enrolment the following year.
Admission preferences in the case of a public random drawing shall be given to the following students in the following order:
1. Children of CCCS staff members
2. Siblings of CCCS students
3. Children of CCCS Alumni
4. Residents of the District
At the conclusion of the public random drawing, all students who were not granted admission due to capacity shall be given the option to put their name on a waiting list according to their draw in the lottery. The waiting list will allow students the option of enrollment in the case of an opening during the school year. Waiting lists will not carry over to the following school year.
After admission, students will be required to submit an enrollment packet, which shall include the following:
· Student enrollment form
· Proof of Immunization
· Home Language Survey
· Completion of Emergency Medical Information Form
· Proof of minimum age requirements, e.g. birth certificate
· Release of records
