Reopening K12 School Plans for COUSD
Dear Charter Oak Families:
This school year is off to an incredible start, and I want to thank our dedicated teachers and staff. They put in meaningful effort to prepare for this school year, and I know they are to thank for a successful first month. The District kicked off the year with a Welcome Back Rally to celebrate these dedicated educators and team members. We marked the occasion with food, refreshments, resources, and more. The District also recognized the phenomenal staff who have been with the Charter Oak Family for many years by awarding them with service banners. I encourage you to watch our Welcome Back Charter Oak USD video, unveiled at the event. It showcases the spirit of our district and the people who make it a wonderful environment for our students and their families.
Join us for the DELAC meeting. Wednesday, October 12, 2022 | ¡Únase con nosotros para la reunión! miercoles, 12 de octubre, 2022!

Pre-Enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year will open on February 14th!
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 21-22 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.

District of Choice Q & A:
When can I apply for the District of Choice (DOC) program for the 2023-2024 school year? Applications will be accepted beginning on October 1st, 2022
What’s the deadline to submit a DOC application for the 2023-2024 school year? The deadline is December 31, 2022. We are unable to accept late applications. There are no exceptions.
How do I apply? Please go to any COUSD school site or district office and pick up an application beginning October 1st through December 31, 2022. Once completed, please submit your application on or before December 31, 2022 via online by scanning to email@example.com or in person at the Student Services Department located at 20350 E. Cienega Ave. Covina, CA 90724, anytime Monday through Friday, between 7:30 AM and 4:00 PM. Please note that the District Office closes for Winter Break.
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 2023-2024 school year? All grade levels are being accepted. Subject to space availability.
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 to 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. In addition, you must make sure we are accepting applications from your district of residence and for your child’s grade level.
