Facilities Memorandum of Understanding by and between CVUSD and OPA has been Approved

Oxford Preparatory Academy is pleased to announce that the Facilities Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Chino Valley Unified School District and OPA has been finalized.

Maximum Enrollment

"d. Satisfaction of Proposition 39 Obligation. The Charter School agrees that by accepting the Premises pursuant to this Agreement, the District has fully and completely satisfied the District’s obligation to provide facilities to the Charter School under Education Code section 47614 and the implementing regulations (“Proposition 39”) for the term of its charter ending June 30, 2012. The Charter School shall not request facilities pursuant to Proposition 39 for the term of its charter ending June 30, 2012.

e. Maximum Enrollment. The parties agree that maximum enrollment shall be:
i. For 2010-2011, a total of 856 site-based students and 200 independent-study students; and,
ii. For 2011-2012, a total of 876 site-based students and 200 independent-study students."

What does this mean for Wait Listed Students?

Students not selected for placement by Lottery on April 17, 2010 were given a waiting list number. Students at the top of the wait lists and eligible for Placement into their grade level based upon space available have been notified of openings in rank order by phone call. As students are placed, the wait list numbers will change (move up) accordingly.
