In accordance with charter law, students may not be concurrently enrolled in this school and any other private or public school. It is not necessary to obtain an inter/intra-district transfer from your local school district to attend Sage Oak.
Before a student can be enrolled in Sage Oak, specific documentation needs to be signed at an enrollment meeting with an assigned teacher. These documents include the Master Agreement, the Acknowledgment of Responsibilities, and other school policy forms. The policies state that students must follow current adopted standards, participate in state and local assessments, and be assigned to and partner with a credentialed teacher. The teacher will fully explain the contents of the documents being signed. These policies and procedures are followed to ensure our compliance and therefore our sustainability.
Admission may be subject to an enrollment lottery depending on the number of applications received in accordance with our board adopted lottery policy. In addition, admission in Sage Oak Charter Schools is dependent on the school receiving funding for each student.
Students are not officially enrolled in Sage Oak Charter Schools until they have met with a teacher and signed a Master Agreement/Acknowledgement of Responsibilities (MA/AoR). It is recommended that students remain enrolled in their current school until the MA/AoR has been signed.
Applications are considered complete when enrollees have submitted an application filled out in its entirety and that application is signed by the parent or guardian along with the following documents according to the student’s grade level.

- A valid birth certificate, passport, or other evidence of birth date.

In accordance with California State Law, a student’s grade level placement will be based on their date of birth. Students will be placed in the appropriate grade using this chart. A student will be eligible for kindergarten enrollment if their birth date is on or before September 1st of the school year they wish to apply.
Students entering TK/Kindergarten, please review the following information:

- A child is eligible for TK if he or she turns five between September 2nd- June 2nd.
