Enrollment Policy

Student Enrollment and Public Random Drawing/Lottery Policies and Procedures


This Policy shall apply to Our Community School (“OCS” or the “Charter School”). This Policy shall be published in the instructions for student application for admission and on the Charter School’s website at http://ourcommunityschool.org/.

All students who wish to attend the Charter School shall be admitted, subject to OCS’s capacity.  If there are more applications than the Charter School has capacity, admission, except for pupils currently enrolled in OCS, shall be determined by public random drawing (or “lottery”), conducted in accordance with the procedures described below.

The lottery is held in the Spring each year. Information about the date, time and location of the lottery will be posted on the Charter School’s website, at the school site, included in public notices, newsletters and/or flyers posted in the community, and will be available by calling the Charter School information number that will be included on all student admission/lottery materials.

OCS strongly encourages all potential applicants to review the OCS charter and the Parent-Student Handbook (available on the Charter School’s website), and published information regarding OCS, prior to submitting an application for admission.
