Wherever you are in the Oakland public school enrollment process, there are always important next steps to take. Let us help!
Already applied for this school year (2018-19)?
Great! If you applied during open enrollment (January 26 for OUSD) or (February 16 for Charters), your application was included in the lotteries and results were communicated in March 2018.
If you submitted your application after the open enrollment deadlines, your application will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis:
- Charter Application: Applications submitted after the February 16 deadline will be considered a Round 2 Application — you will be placed on a waiting list at each of your selected schools, and offered enrollment if space becomes available. Some schools use priorities in Round 2, so your school waitlist positions may change up or down depending on the actions of other applicants.
- District (OUSD) Application: Applications submitted after the January 26 deadline will be considered late and processed in the order received. For more OUSD enrollment information, visit an OUSD Welcome Center at 746 Grand Ave., call 510-879-4600, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.ousd.org/enroll.
