Waiting List and Kindergarten Lottery Process for the 2018-2019 School YearTop of Page

Lottery Applications for the 2018-19 school year will be available November 1. The 2018-19 lottery will take place on February 20, 2018.
 
We encourage parents who are interested in obtaining an application to download it on the website or come to the office during normal business hours.
 
Waiting lists for CCDS are regenerated every year. A parent or guardian must re-apply for the waiting list every year.  The Admittance Policy is attached to the school application.

Lottery preference is given to students residing within the Chico Unified attendance boundary at the time of lottery. Statistical weighting for the available openings in the lottery are as follows:
  • 40% students residing in the Barber Neighborhood.  Please download the map designating the Barber Yard Neighborhood.
  • 20% students residing in the Chapman School attendance boundary.
  • 20% students residing in the Citrus School attendance boundary.
 
  • Lottery for grades 1-8*:  Our lottery for the 2018-19 school year generates our wait list for 2018-19 and takes place on February 20, 2018.
  • Kindergarten Lottery 2018:  A lottery will be held on February 20, 2018 and is generated by an automated random selection process.  Kindergarten applications turned in after the lottery will continue to be accepted throughout the school year and those names will be added to the waiting list as they are received.

We are accepting Wait List Applications for 2017-18. We will continue to accept applications through the 2017-18 school year and your child will be placed at the bottom of the waiting list generated from the lottery for the grade your are interested in.
 
Please fill out the application, and return to Stacy Ferguson in the main office or via email here.  Please note that our waiting list is renewed every year, and if your child is not admitted for the year that you are applying for, you must fill out a new application for the next year.
