If it is denied, you may still attend our school by enrolling in Chicago Park Community Charter School.

The Lottery and Priority Applications Students are admitted to the charter school based upon the numeric priority scale listed below.
If the number of applications for admission in any grade exceeds the capacity of the school for that grade, once the priority students are admitted, the spaces in that grade will be filled by lottery. Siblings of students currently enrolled in the District. Children of staff/personnel who work in the Chicago Park Elementary School District. Students whose parent’s place of employment is within the School District boundaries. Students whose day care is within the District boundaries. For all others, the lottery drawing for the next school year will be held in a public forum each June if necessary. Students not selected through the lottery process will be placed on a waiting list. If an opening should become available, those on the top of the waiting list (determined by lottery) will be given first choice to attend CPCCS.
After the lottery, families will receive their official enrollment forms and will be informed of the enrollment process. If the number of applications to a grade does not exceed the number of spaces available in that grade, there will be no lottery for that grade, and all students for that grade who submitted qualified applications will be enrolled. In future years, currently enrolled Charter School students will not participate in the random drawing, as they are automatically reserved a space for the following year.
Applications should be submitted to: Chicago Park School District 15725 Mt. Olive Road, Grass Valley, CA
