Lighthouse Lottery February 1st at DECS

Hello Lighthouse Families,

We will have our first lottery for the 2016-2017 school year on Monday, February 1st at 11:00am, at our sister school, Delta Elementary Charter School. DECS is located at 36230 North School Street, Clarksburg, CA 95612.

This is a public lottery, so anyone may attend. Please come to the front office when you arrive if you decide to come. You do not need to be present, but you are welcome. Lottery results will be posted online as soon as the lottery is completed. Parents will be notified of their status by mail and/or email.

According to our charter, when there are more applicants than spaces available, there will be a public random drawing to determine enrollment for the impacted grade levels, with the exception of existing students who are guaranteed enrollment in the following school year.

“Preferences in the public random drawing will be given in the following order of priority:

Priority 1: Children of Charter School Employees, Board of Directors, and Founding Members. (Not to exceed 20% of total population. “Founding Members” shall be defined in accordance with adopted policy of the Board of Directors.)

Priority 2: Siblings of students who currently attend the Charter School for 30 school days.

Priority 3: Sixth grade graduates of the Delta Elementary Charter School.

Priority 4: Residents of the Washington Unified School District attendance area.

Priority 5: All other out-of-District applicants.”


(Note: Priority 3 does not apply for the 2016-2017 school year. It will apply when Lighthouse expands to 7th grade.)
