Oxford Preparatory Academy Facility and Enrollment Status May 9, 2010


Oxford Prep has officially accepted CVUSD’s offer of the former El Rancho Elementary school site as our inaugural campus per the Prop 39 deadline of May 1, 2010. Negotiations are ongoing regarding student enrollment and facility improvements.

Oxford Prep held a random public lottery on April 17, 2010 and was able to take in 728 students at that time. OPA has counter-offered the District and asked to take in 856 students in year one and 876 in year two, with 200 additional Independent Study students.

The former El Rancho campus offers 37 teaching spaces, allowing Oxford to offer a comprehensive kindergarten through eighth grade program housed in ONE campus. This campus will also allow OPA to provide program rooms, vital to the teaching of the Theory of Multiple Intelligences, the mainstay of our philosophy. The program rooms we intend to offer on campus include: a computer lab, music room, game room, science room, speech and language, foreign language study rooms, special education rooms, and more. Additionally, we hope to add a more adequate library for kindergarten through 8th grade students with tables and counters, allowing students a research and study library experience versus a simple “checkout” library.

CVUSD has not yet accepted Oxford’s counter-offer to increase enrollment to 856 on campus students and 200 Independent Study students. Due to the legal nature of negotiations with the District and the time lines imposed by the nature of the ongoing dialogue, OPA is still waiting to announce our final enrollment number and notify our waiting list families if spots have opened up for placement. We can, however announce at this time that we plan to open our school at the former El Rancho campus on September 7, 2010.

Attention! Placement Acceptance Deadline Extended to May 15, 2010!

Oxford Prep has extended the deadline to return Placement Acceptance Post Cards from May 10 to May 15. We appreciate your understanding of the delay of our facility announcement. Thank you for your patience!

Oxford Preparatory Academy is a start up charter school. We do not have the deep financial resources of a School District. However, we will not be deterred from bringing the BEST educational opportunity to your children. Therefore, we need your help to cover our current operational costs, including paying legal fees necessary to maintain our current negotiations with CVUSD for a top-notch facility to house our educational program. We thank you ahead of time for a $25.00 tax-deductible donation toward the Oxford Preparatory Foundation, 100% of which will be used to pay our legal fees.

Your financial generosity supports both the comprehensive process of providing an all-inclusive facility in which to educate your children as well as the legal negotiations vital to increasing our enrollment from the original 583 students CVUSD initially permitted. Our legal team has been working diligently to expand the enrollment beyond 728 and we will get the enrollment to 856 with your help. Our goal is to allow as many students as possible to participate in this educational opportunity and your support and voice are the most powerful tools in doing so.
