Open Enrollment Lottery Due to State Budget Agreement

Due to the budget agreement proposed by the Governor and the Legislature last week, Mountain Oaks will be limited on the number of Open Enrollment students it can place at this time. Please see the attached letter and be on the lookout for it in email communications and registration packets going home. This applies to Brand New families, not existing or siblings. Please share with new families if possible. To those of you that are new please see the Admin. update that will be placed on our YouTube channel as well. We will continue to update all communication channels and look forward to serving as many families as we can next year! Thank you for your understanding, we did not expect this decision by our Legislature and will continue to voice our opposition. Click article title for letter. Posted 6-29-20

Open Enrollment is now Closed

The number of student applications for Mountain Oaks has now exceeded the seats available for the 20-21 School Year. We will continue to collect pre-registrations from all interested families and hold a Public Lottery for any open spots.

This lottery is scheduled to happen on or after June 26th, 2020. You will be notified of your position on the waitlist once the lottery has taken place and the waitlist is established. The public lottery will be in accordance with applicable Charter Law and the Mountain Oaks Charter School Petition.

In response to our growing waitlist, Mountain Oaks is engaged in hiring additional teachers to meet the growing demand. However, at this time we cannot guarantee families we will be able to hire enough teachers to meet the demand. Either way, we will keep our families informed and ensure the process provides all families with equal access to enrollment at Mountain Oaks.

If a spot becomes available, you will receive communication from our office with instructions on how to complete the registration process. Prior to being fully enrolled, all students and families will participate in an intake interview and complete the appropriate school registration paperwork.

Important Information for Remainder of School Year

Dear Mountain Oaks Community, Please see the letter regarding COVID-19 and School Operations, that came from the State Superintendent of Schools Office late yesterday, March 31, 2020. (Click article title for letter from Tony Thurmond.) In light of this communication from the CDE, it seems campus closures may extend through the end of the School Year. Despite this closure of campuses, the Expectations for Continued Learning remain in place during the COVID-19 campus closures. Your Mentor Teacher will continue to work with you on your original Personalized Learning Plan (on modified Curriculum if necessary). We are continuing to work on solutions for all students but we are especially sensitive to the needs of our 8th graders and 12th graders who anticipate promoting and/or graduating this year. Please note if a student was on pace and in good standing for promotion/graduation, we fully anticipate those students completing this year. We are also looking at options and timelines for postponing, rescheduling and/or modifying our Commencement Celebrations. Please continue to work with your Mentor Teacher and check in on all Mountain Oaks School communications channels frequently. A packet of information will be in the traditional mail as well in the coming days. We will make an announcement when those are sent. Thank you for continuing to work with your students and the Mountain Oaks Staff during this time of uncertainty. Stay safe and healthy. Posted 4/1/20
