After attending the School Tour and the Information Night, the next step is to apply for the lottery. This happens during the Open Enrollment period and you may register on any day during the Open Enrollment period. You may only apply for ONE alternative school in CUSD. The results of the lottery are mailed by CUSD. The CUSD website provides information about district policies and key dates.
If your child does not get into McAuliffe, they are placed on a "waiting list". Once your child is in a "school of choice," that school becomes your child's "home" school and you do not need to re-apply your child for the lottery each year.
We are here to help! While this may seem like a lot of steps, we make every effort to enroll as many students as possible at McAuliffe. If you ever have any questions about the enrollment process, call the McAuliffe office at 408-253-4696 x100 .The CUSD website provides information about district policies and key dates.
