    A Note from our Superintendent on COVID-19:

    COVID-19 Update - March 13, 2020 #3

    March 13, 2020

    Dear Charter Oak Families,

    I appreciate your understanding and patience as we have all been dealing with a lot of uncertainty the last 24 hours. Late this morning, I received information from the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) that advised dismissal of schools throughout Los Angeles County. Therefore, Charter Oak Unified will be closed to students beginning Monday, March 16 through Sunday, April 5, 2020. This time period includes the recommended two weeks by LACOE and our regularly scheduled Spring Break. Effective Monday, this will include all school activities (including athletics), and before and after school care programs (including preschool).

    Any student who participates in the National School Lunch Program can continue to receive their student meals by reporting to Charter Oak High School (pick-up in the student parking lot), 1430 E. Covina Blvd., Covina, CA, 91724 between the hours of 11:00 am and 1:00 pm. This system will be in place Monday, March 16 through the dismissal period of Friday, March 27 (lunch will not be distributed over Spring Break).

    We understand these restrictions will create many hardships on our families. Please remember that this decision is to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in order to keep our students and staff safe.

    We will continue to send information out to our staff and families via email and post information on our website and social media accounts (Facebook and Twitter).

    We will also be sending out notification on how we will provide academic enrichment for students during this time period. Our staff will be working on materials and methods at the beginning of next week and we will communicate how to obtain the information soon.

    Again, we understand this situation brings a lot of uncertainty. We are all working together to make this the easiest process for our staff and students. Communication and teamwork will be the two key ingredients for success. Thank you for your continued support.

    Queridas Familias de Charter Oak,

    Agradezco su comprensión y paciencia, ya que todos hemos estado lidiando con mucha incertidumbre las últimas 24 horas. A última hora de esta mañana, recibí información de la Oficina de Educación del Condado de Los Angeles (LACOE) que aconsejó el despido de escuelas en todo el Condado de Los Angeles. Por lo tanto, el distrito unificado de Charter Oak estará cerrado a los estudiantes a partir del lunes 16 de marzo hasta el domingo 5 de abril de 2020. Este período de tiempo incluye las dos semanas recomendadas por LACOE y nuestras vacaciones de primavera programadas regularmente. Lunes efectivo, esto incluirá todas las actividades escolares (incluyendo atletismo), y antes y después de los programas de cuidado escolar (incluyendo preescolar).

    Cualquier estudiante que participe en el Programa Nacional de Almuerzo Escolar puede continuar recibir sus comidas para estudiantes reportándose a Charter Oak High School (recogida en el estacionamiento para estudiantes), 1430 E. Covina Blvd., Covina, CA, 91724 entre las 11:00 am y 1:00 pm. Este sistema estará en vigor el lunes 16 de marzo hasta el período de despido del viernes 27 de marzo (el almuerzo no se distribuirá durante las vacaciones de primavera).

    Entendemos que estas restricciones crearán muchas dificultades para nuestras familias. Recuerde que esta decisión es para mitigar la propagación de COVID-19 con el fin de mantener a nuestros estudiantes y personal a salvo.

    Continuaremos enviando información a nuestro personal y familias a través de correo electrónico y publicaremos información en nuestro sitio web y cuentas de redes sociales (Facebook y Twitter).

    También enviaremos una notificación sobre cómo proporcionaremos enriquecimiento académico a los estudiantes durante este período de tiempo. Nuestro personal trabajará en materiales y métodos a principios de la próxima semana y comunicaremos cómo obtener la información pronto.

    Una vez más, entendemos que esta situación trae mucha incertidumbre. Todos estamos trabajando juntos para hacer este proceso más fácil para nuestro personal y estudiantes. La comunicación y el trabajo en equipo serán los dos ingredientes clave para el éxito. Gracias por su continuo apoyo.

    Pre-Enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year is now open!

    Charter Oak Online Enrollment allows you to quickly start the process of enrolling a brand new student from any internet device. Information about the student such as emergency contacts, medical and language information will be collected. Upon completion, the school-site is electronically notified that you have completed the online enrollment process and they will be ready to take your required documents when you stop by their office.

    This Enrollment process is NOT necessary for any student that was enrolled in a Charter Oak USD school during the 20-21 school year and is moving up to the next grade level. Only NEW students starting Kinder/TK or coming from another district need to complete this process.

    If you need assistance with online enrollment please contact your school site or make an appointment with the Student Services Office.

    Transfer Questions? 626-966-8331 ext. 90556



    Data Confirmation

    Every year Charter Oak USD requires all new and returning students to complete the Data Confirmation process. This is an opportunity for parents to edit/confirm emergency contacts, review school-site policies, and renew the yearly authorizations. This process must be completed for every student before classes/teachers will be officially assigned. 


    20-21 Data Confirmation is now open for all school sites.

    Due to COVID-19, we are not requiring parents to print the Confirmation/Emergency Card page.

    You will not need a printer to complete Data Confirmation.

    Data Confirmation can be completed on a smartphone, computer, chromebook, or tablet.

    If you do not have one of these devices to complete the process, you can make an appointment by calling Student Services at 626-966-8331 ext. 90556

District of Choice

  • District of Choice Applications will be available October 1, 2021 - December 31, 2021, for the 2022-2023 school year.

    If you live outside of the COUSD boundaries but wish to attend school here, there are a few options:
    • Interdistrict Transfer (IDT)
    • Allen Bill
    • District of Choice (DOC). Applications are only available from October 1 - December 31 for the 2022-2023 school year.
    • We are unable to accept any DOC applications from Azusa, Rowland, or Pomona USD.

    Please contact Donna Maeda-Reyes, Student Services Technician, at the COUSD Student Services Department at (626) 966-8331 x90556 or email at dmaedareyes@cousd.net or enroll@cousd.net for more information.

    District of Choice Q & A:

    When can I apply for the District of Choice (DOC) program for the 2022-2023 school year? Applications will be accepted beginning October 1.

    What’s the deadline to submit a DOC application for the 2022-2023 school year? The deadline is December 31. We are unable to accept late applications.

    How do I apply? Please go to any COUSD school site or district office and pick up an application between October 1 and December 31. Once completed, please submit your application on or before December 31 to the Student Services Department located at 20350 E. Cienega Ave. Covina, CA 90724, anytime Monday through Friday, between 7:30 AM and 4 PM, or email the form to enroll@cousd.net.

    Who may apply? Any student who does NOT reside in Azusa, Pomona, or Rowland Unified School Districts. We are unable to accept students from those districts, due to reaching the cap on the number of students we may accept from them under the regulations of the DOC program. However, students from those districts may still utilize the regular interdistrict transfer (IDT) process, whereby you obtain a release from your district of residence.

    What grade levels are you accepting for the 2020-2021 school year? All grade levels

    What about my ‘home’ district (district of residence)? Students accepted through DOC do not need to be released from their district of residence.

    Do I need to re-apply for DOC every year? No, you do not need re-apply if your student is currently enrolled under DOC, and has maintained continuous attendance under DOC since being enrolled in a COUSD school.

    I have a student attending a COUSD school under DOC. Now I’d like his/her sibling to start attending under DOC, too. Do I have to apply for the sibling, or will the sibling automatically be admitted under DOC? You must apply for each sibling to attend under DOC. Siblings are not automatically admitted under DOC.

    I live in a district from which COUSD is no longer able to accept DOC applications. My older child is currently enrolled under DOC; will that child be able to continue under DOC? I’d also like his/her younger sibling to attend COUSD. Is there any way I can get my younger child in under DOC? Your older child who is currently attending will be allowed to continue under DOC as long as he/she maintains continuous attendance in a COUSD school. The younger sibling will be ineligible to apply for DOC. You will need to utilize the regular interdistrict transfer process for your younger child, whereby you get released from your home district.

    I would really like my current DOC student to go to a particular/different school next year. How do I make that happen? Parents should fill out and submit an intra-district request form at the school site where they want their child to attend next year. The receiving school site will evaluate whether or not there is space available for intra-district applicants and will notify you if they are able to accommodate your request for the upcoming school year. COUSD is not obligated to place a student in a particular school or program. All requests are based on space availability at a particular site.

    My child used to attend COUSD under DOC, but we left to attend school in another district. Now we’d like to come back to COUSD. Is my child still eligible to attend under DOC? No, not without re-applying for DOC. Once you dis-enrolled from the district, you lost your DOC eligibility. If you want to return to COUSD, you must re-apply, and you must make sure we are accepting applications from your district of residence, and for your child’s grade.
