- By law, a first come, first served selection process does not constitute a random, unbiased process. Intradistrict open enrollment transfer applications may be submitted during the Open Enrollment period in the Office of Student Support Services anytime during business hours.
TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN: Transitional Kindergarten Information Page
- Transitional Kindergarten pre-registration applications submitted during the Intradistrict Open Enrollment period are included the lottery.
- Parent/Guardian must present proof of child's age to Student Support Services at the time of completing the application.
- Current TK Parents/Guardians: Each TK student will return to his/her residence school for next year kindergarten. If you wish to have your student attend kindergarten at the TK transfer school, you will need to submit an intradistrict transfer request during the open enrollment period. Requesting a transfer for your student does not guarantee continued placement at the TK school.
- The lottery is a one-day event where all applications submitted during the intradistrict open enrollment period are assigned a random, unbiased lottery number to establish the rank order in which applications may be accepted.
- On January 13, 2020, the lottery will be held in the District's Board Room located at 5130 Riverside Drive, Chino, CA, 91710. The lottery will begin at 8:30 a.m. for transitional kindergarten, elementary and K-8 schools and at 1:30 p.m. for junior high and high schools. Your attendance is welcome, but not mandatory.
- Postcard notification of the student's random, unbiased lottery number will be mailed to parent/guardian on February 3, 2020.
- After the lottery has been conducted and when space is not available to accommodate all applicants, students shall be placed on a waiting list, in rank order by lottery number, for the school requested. As space allows, applications shall be approved in rank order through September 30.
- The intradistrict open enrollment transfer waiting list expires September 30 for all school sites.
- Parents/guardians are required to enroll their student in his/her attendance area school until notified of the transfer approval. Students who are not enrolled in their attendance area school on the first day of school may be removed from the transfer process.
- Parent/guardian shall be notified by school site personnel when student's application has been approved.
- Parent/guardian shall confirm student’s enrollment at the school requested within ten (10) school days following notification of the transfer approval or the transfer application becomes void.
TERM OF ENROLLMENT:
- Transitional Kindergarten applications are approved for current year only, and student shall return to his/her residence school for Kindergarten.
- K-12 students placed through the intradistrict open enrollment transfer process are approved through the highest grade served at the school requested. Enrollment does not extend to the next school. A new application is required for each grade span: K-6, 7-8, 9-12.
- Students who desire to continue in the feeder junior high or high school of the school requested shall submit a new transfer application in the sixth grade, and again in the eighth grade, during the intradistrict open enrollment application period. This election is subject to space availability.
STUDENTS WHO DESIRE TO RETURN TO THEIR ATTENDANCE AREA SCHOOL:
- Students on an approved intradistrict open enrollment transfer no longer have first-priority rights to enroll in their attendance area school. Students who desire to return to their attendance area school may apply for such enrollment as available through the intradistrict open enrollment process. (Does not apply to TK.)
CHANGE OF STUDENT ADDRESS FOR A PENDING OR APPROVED TRANSFER:
- Change of address on the student record shall be made at the school site you are currently attending.
- If student's address changes while the application is still pending on the waitlist, parent/guardian shall also notify Student Support Services of the new address.
- Once your transfer has been approved, and your address changes to an area outside of the attendance area school, your transfer is voided and a new request for intradistrict transfer application shall be submitted in Student Support Services. Continued placement at the transfer school is not guaranteed.
- Parents/guardians shall provide transportation for their students on an approved intradistrict transfer and for students in transitional kindergarten. The district will not assume any responsibility for transportation of a student who has accepted an intradistrict transfer.
