The enrollment process for charter schools consists of two main steps: (1) the Intent-to-Enroll Form and (2) Student Registration. The Intent-to-Enroll is basically an application. Student Registration locks in a student's seat and provides the school with additional information about the student.
The enrollment process for charter schools can be confusing, so we recommend that you keep reading for important information about the application process.
THE "OPEN-ENROLLMENT PERIOD"
Seven Oaks will begin receiving applications for the 2018-2019 school year during the "open-enrollment period." The open-enrollment period for the 2018-2019 school year runs from 8:00am (EST), Monday, December 4, 2017, until 5:00pm (EST), Friday, March 9, 2018. All “Intent-To-Enroll” forms received during this period will receive equal consideration. Once the open-enrollment period ends, seats will be offered. Anyone offered a seat will be directed to complete the Student Registration process at that time. Applications received after the open-enrollment period will be processed in the order in which they are received.
THE LOTTERY & WAITLIST
If, at the end of the “open-enrollment period,” there are more enrollees than available seats at any grade level, a lottery will be scheduled for Monday, March 19. This lottery will be conducted by random drawing or software randomizer in a public meeting at a time set by the administration. The lottery will determine the order of admissions. From this ordering, seats will be offered according to the number of vacancies. Families who do not attend the lottery will be notified by telephone, e-mail, or U.S. Postal Service. Failure of an applicant to confirm his or her intent to enroll within 48 hours of the date of the telephone call or e-mail, or within three (3) business days of a post-marked letter, will forfeit his or her position in line. Parents or guardians notified by mail will be instructed to call the school immediately upon receipt of the notice in order to confirm their child’s intent to enroll.
Registration provides the school with the information it needs to request records, assign classes, etc. Once students have been notified of an available seat and have confirmed their intent to enroll, they have fourteen (14) days to complete the Student Registration process. Failure to do so will forfeit an applicant’s position in line. After the receipt of the Enrollment Form by Seven Oaks Classical School, the student’s name will be added to the appropriate grade level list. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Seven Oaks Classical School will continue to accept applications after March 9. New applicants will be added to the student roll or wait list in the order in which their applications are received.
If a vacancy arises before the start of the school year, the next individual on the waiting list will be offered admission. Parents or guardians must respond within 48 hours of notification by telephone call or email, or within (3) business days of a post-marked letter in order to confirm their intent to enroll. Where there are multiple sections or classes, placement will be determined by the headmaster and faculty. Parental requests will be taken under consideration, but are not guaranteed satisfaction.
If you have questions about the process or would prefer to receive the application as an email attachment, or via the U. S. Postal Service, contact the school office at 812-935-5003, or email Renee Sadowski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
