Special Enrollment Process for Oakland Schools

Open Enrollment officially launches November 4 for the 2020-2021 school year! Aspire is proud to partner with Enroll Oakland to help you choose the best Oakland public school – district and charter – for your child. Aspire Public Schools are public schools, free and open to all students. English language learners and students with disabilities are encouraged to apply. You can apply directly at enrolloak.schoolmint.net.  If you’d like more information about the enrollment process and key dates, including school profiles, visit EnrollOak.org.

The open enrollment application deadline for Aspire’s schools in Oakland for the 2020-2021 school year is February 7, 2020. Applications received by this deadline will be included in our lottery.  On March 12, 2020 you should see all your charter school lottery results (OFFER or WAITLIST) in your student dashboard and at that time you can ACCEPT/DECLINE an offer. The deadline to ACCEPT/DECLINE a charter school offer is March 26, 2020. If you do not accept by this date, the charter school lottery offer(s) will expire. Once you accept an offer, offers from other schools will be automatically declined. You can remain on waitlists but may only accept an offer at one school.

If you miss the February 7, 2020 deadline, you will still be able to submit an online application for the 2020-2021 school year. Applications submitted after the February 7 deadline will be considered a Round 2 Application – you will be placed on a waiting list at each of your selected schools, and/or offered enrollment, if space becomes available. Round 2 applicants will be placed on waitlists on a first-come, first-served basis.
