Information Regarding Enrollment Tiers & Re-Verification

John Rex Charter Elementary School has a four-tiered priority system for enrollment:

1) First, any child residing within the attendance boundaries for JRCES (residency verification required annually*);

2) Second, a child who resides outside the JRCES attendance boundaries but within the boundaries of Oklahoma City Public Schools. Residency verification is required at time of application and annually thereafter*;

3) Third, a child who resides outside the boundaries of Oklahoma City Public Schools and whose parent, guardian or other person with legal custody is employed within the JRCES attendance boundaries. Employment verification letters must be provided at time of application and annually thereafter*. An out-of-district transfer form is required upon admission;

4) Fourth, a child who resides outside the boundaries of Oklahoma City Public Schools and whose parent, guardian or other person with legal custody is not employed within the JRCES attendance boundaries. An out-of-district transfer form is required upon admission.

After Tier 1, enrollment priority is given to currently enrolled students, a sibling of a child currently enrolled in the school and a child of a person directly providing educational services for the benefit of the school (e.g. children of faculty members). Within Tier 2, additional priority will be given to applications for admission from children whose parent, guardian or other person with legal custody is employed within the JRCES attendance boundaries.

If, at any time, the number of eligible students applying for admission exceeds the capacity of the school/grade level, the head of school will conduct a lottery, which shall be held within the priority level and/or grade level that is oversubscribed, to select the student(s) that may be admitted to JRCES. Enrollment and admission decisions will be based on school capacity limitations, class/grade capacity limitations, program availability, and/or educational needs of the student.

*ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTS REQUIRED:

Students who initially enrolled at JRCES during school year 2016-17 and in subsequent years who wish to retain their seat at JRCES must annually complete an Intent to Re-Enroll form each spring, remain in good standing, PLUS provide appropriate documentation to re-verify residency. Student information will be updated and siblings will be identified/enrolled. Each family must provide one of the following documents:

● Proof of residency in JRCES  Attendance Boundaries (current utility bill, mortgage statement, and/or lease agreement)

● Proof of residency in Oklahoma City Public School District (current utility bill, mortgage statement, and/or lease agreement)

● Proof of current employment in JRCES Attendance Boundaries (letter confirming employment from their HR/Personnel Department)

If students are not able to provide these documents and they wish to continue to attend JRCES, they will be required to re-enter the lottery for their grade level.
