How to Become a Mound Family
Mound is a lottery-only school with no neighborhood boundary. Parents who are interested in having their children attend Mound must fill out the Ventura Unified “School of Choice” application in January and be selected from an unbiased lottery. The window of opportunity for submission is January 6 - January 20, 2017. Applications can be picked up at Mound or at any other school in the district or can be downloaded from the district website beginning January 6, 2017.
Only students who reside in the Ventura Unified School District and are able to provide two proofs of residency at the time of application may apply. Students who live outside of the district are not eligible to participate in the school of choice process.
Completed applications should be turned in at any VUSD school; the District Office at 255 W. Stanley Avenue, Ventura; or to the Office Manager at Mound prior to January 20, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. Applications must be complete and contain all required components to be considered for the lottery. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
We hope to see your child's name on our admissions list in February, 2017!
