Pursuant to California Education Code §47605 (2) (A) a charter school shall admit all pupils who wish to attend the school. However, if the number of pupils who wish to attend the charter school exceeds the school’s capacity, attendance, except for existing pupils of the charter school, shall be determined by public random drawing. Preference shall be extended to pupils currently attending the charter school and pupils who reside in the district except as provided for in Section 47614.5. Other preferences may be permitted by the chartering authority on an individual school basis and only if consistent with the law.
 Assembly Bill 544 provides the opportunity for founding parents of a charter school to be given first right for their children to attend the charter school. A founding member is defined as a parent who has signed the “interest petition” and who has students either enrolled in the school, or siblings of those students enrolled or enrolled in the past.
Public school of choice
Student body will reflect the demographics of BESD and the County in respect to ethnicity, academic performance, gender and economic status. Admission to the charter school shall not be determined according to the place of residence of the pupil, or his or her parent or guardian. Priority enrollment requirements apply as set forth below.
Each spring, families of enrolled students will receive re-enrollment packets. It is the parents’ responsibility to meet the deadline for returning all paperwork. Those students whose paperwork is incomplete or not submitted in a timely manner may lose their secured placement.
