General Information for 2019-2020

Westwood Charter School Lottery, Grades TK - 5

Westwood Charter School is a neighborhood school.  In the event that we have space in a grade level, we will select students from a random public lottery. 


The lottery will take place on April 24, 2019 at 8:30am. We will hold a public random drawing to establish a ranked list for openings in the fall.  We will not know until August or later if we will be enrolling any lottery students in any grades.  Please make alternate plans.


You do not need to be present for the drawing.  When submitting your lottery application you will receive an ID number.  That ID number can be used to see where your child is on the ranked list.  This information will be available on our website on April 29, 2019 at 6:00pm. 


To be considered for the drawing on April 24th, you must complete a lottery card in the main office NO LATER than April 5th.

Admission Policy, Westwood Charter Proposal, 2013:

Order of Admission into Westwood Charter School for New Enrollment:

All resident students. (Our residence boundaries are: Sepulveda Boulevard (east side) on the west, Pico Boulevard (north side) on the south, Santa Monica Boulevard (south side) on the north and Century Park East on the east.) 

Then, if there are available spaces in any specific grade level, in this order: 

2.   Non-resident students with a sibling currently enrolled at Westwood in grades TK-4 whom reside within LAUSD boundaries.

3.   Non-resident students whom reside within LAUSD attendance boundaries. 

4.   Non-resident students with a sibling currently enrolled at Westwood in grades TK-4 whom reside outside LAUSD boundaries. 

5.   Non-resident students whom reside outside LAUSD attendance boundaries. 


In order to reserve places for our resident children, as agreed upon with the LAUSD Charter Division, Office of Demographic and Educations Service Center West, we will hold available seats at the beginning of the school year, for students who reside within our attendance area.  School Management Services will calculate the operating capacity for Westwood.  The operating capacity should be recalculated annually.  The number of seats to be held will be determined in collaboration with the District.  We will hold a public random drawing, in the spring, for spaces that might be available in each grade level the following academic year. 

At the time of application for the lottery, the rules will be communicated in written form to all families applying.  A parent and teacher representative of the School Site Governance Council will monitor lottery procedures to ensure they are fairly executed.  Westwood accepts continuous applications throughout the year for lottery.  The lottery will occur on the school campus and all parents whose children are entered in the lottery will be encouraged to attend.  Every name of a child applying to the grade level where openings exist will be drawn in the lottery to establish a priority list, but only those children whose priority numbers fit within the existing number of opening will be offered admittance.  Remaining students will be placed on the waiting list.  Those students selected in the lottery will be notified by phone and U.S. mail within twenty-four hours of the offer of admission and must accept within one week of receiving the notification to secure a sport at the school.
