General Lottery Information

Thank you for your interest in attending Kenter Canyon Elementary Charter School! The following timelines and procedures are to be followed by all applicants.

All non-resident students interested in attending an L.A. Unified Affiliated Charter school for the next school year must apply through Unified Enrollment or submit a paper application found in the Choices Brochure. In the event that we have space in a grade level, we will select students from a random public lottery.

The lottery will take place on February 3, 2023 at 9:00 am. The public random drawing is held via Zoom to establish a ranked list for openings in the fall.  You do not need to be present for the drawing.  We may not know until July or later if we will be enrolling any lottery students in any grades.  Please make alternate plans.

In conducting the lottery, Kenter Canyon Charter will provide the following admission preferences, in the stated order of priority (first priority goes to students within Kenter Canyon’s residential boundaries):

LAUSD Unified Enrollment Applicant Students

  • Siblings – prospective students who are siblings of students enrolled in grades TK-4 at Kenter Canyon at the time of the lottery and reside within LAUSD boundaries, but not within the former attendance boundaries, shall have the second admission preference.
  • Other LAUSD Students – All other prospective students who reside within LAUSD boundaries, but not within the former attendance boundaries, shall have third admission preference.

California Unified Enrollment Applicant Students

  • Siblings – prospective students who are siblings of students enrolled in grades TK-4 at Kenter Canyon at the time of the lottery and reside in the State of California but not within LAUSD boundaries, shall have fourth admissions preference.
  • Non-resident students who reside in the State of California but not within the LAUSD boundaries, shall have fifth admissions preference.

Students who participate in the Unified Enrollment lottery but are not selected for enrollment shall be placed on a waitlist in the same priority order as above.  Waitlist families will be contacted as seats become available. This waitlist shall be effective until the end of the programmatic year to which it pertains. Non-resident boundary students who apply for admission after the public drawing Unified Enrollment application window, will be added to the bottom of the waitlist in the order in which their applications are received.
