SOC WINDOW

Each January, VUSD designates certain schools to be schools of choice for the coming year. Additionally, there are several magnet schools available each year for consideration.  Once your student is selected through the random and unbiased lottery process, for our schools of choice program, the student may remain until they complete their 8th grade year.  

The lottery window for the 2020-2021 Schools of Choice program is January 17-31, 2020.

 

ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT DATES:

1/16/20 VUSD Schools of Choice Information Night @ Buena High School- 5:30pm

VUSD SCHOOLS OF CHOICE INFO

WHO?
Parents/guardians of school age children, who currently reside in the Ventura Unified School District (VUSD) boundary during the SOC window, can apply.  


WHEN?
January 19 through February, 1, 2019. To participate in SOC, submission of application is required for every new incoming child/sibling. 

WHAT?
SOC is the process VUSD uses to give parents who reside in Ventura Unified a choice to select a school within VUSD that they feel will most benefit their child (VUSD Board Policy §5116.1).  Schools and programs are identified based on space availability for additional students.  SOC applications are selected for approval through a random and unbiased lottery.  Applications are not selected on a first come, first serve basis.  Upon acceptance of placement at one SOC school, the alternate selection is forfeited.  

HOW?
Applications are available at every school site, the Education Service Center, and the VUSD website(www.venturausd.org).  For more information, contact a VUSD principal or the ESC, 641-5000.
