OPEN ENROLLMENT 2017-18 (NEXT) SCHOOL YEAR
Starting on NOVEMBER 1, 2016 Tanque Verde Unified School District (TVUSD) is accepting Open Enrollment applications for the 2017-2018 school year. Our schools: Tanque Verde High (9-12th), Emily Gray Junior High (7-8th), Agua Caliente Elementary (K-6th), and Tanque Verde Elementary (K-6th) are all expected to have additional capacity for the 2017-18 school year. A particular grade, class, program or special services offered within a school may have no additional capacity or may have more limited additional capacity than the school in general.
The application submission window is open for the 2017-18 school year starting November 1, through March 1, 2017. It is not a first come first serve basis. Open Enrollment selections are made through a random lottery. Incomplete applications are considered INVALID and are not included in the random lottery selection. Providing false or misleading information on the Open Enrollment application may result in the application being denied or Open Enrollment admission being rescinded. A separate application form is needed for each student. Current TVUSD Open Enrollment students do not have to complete an application form for next school year, but such students are subject to capacity limitations and must remain in compliance with TVUSD Open Enrollment Admission Standards.
Open Enrollment admission is subject to capacity limitations applicable to each school, grade level, program, and type of special services provided to students. If the number of students applying exceeds capacity limitations, selections will be based on a random lottery within designated priority classifications.
Notification to the parents or legal guardians will occur mid to late March. Families of applicants admitted as Open Enrollment students will receive a phone call and a follow-up letter with details about next steps. Other applicants will either be placed on a waiting list or be informed that their Open Enrollment applications have been denied. Families with students on the waiting list will receive a letter providing them with additional waiting list information.
Transportation of an Open Enrollment student is the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian. The parent or legal guardian may be able to use existing TVUSD transportation routes, subject to restrictions and limitations set out in Governing Board Policy JFB—Open Enrollment.
Open Enrollment admission is on a year-by-year basis and continued attendance as an Open Enrollment student is not guaranteed. Open Enrollment students must remain in compliance with TVUSD Open Enrollment Admission Standards (e.g., no excessive absences or tardies, no repeated or serious disciplinary matters, etc.) and are subject to school, grade level, program and special services capacity limitations. If the placement of a student with an individualized education program is changed into one where capacity is not available, the student’s Open Enrollment status may be rescinded.
