Welcome Kindergarten and New Students for 2015-16

Today is Registration day and here is some information about our space in the coming school year:

Welcome to Camarena Elementary.  We are excited to have you join our community of learners and we want you to understand what space is available for the 2015-16 school year.  Our school has classes from TK through 6th grade and our capacity is approximately 1075.  This current year we are overflowing approximately 40 students to other schools in the CVESD.

For 2015-16, we will most likely be in the position of overflowing a small percentage of students again this year.  We have a total of 40 classrooms.  Here’s how we select students for enrollment/overflow.

Students who already have a sibling attending Camarena will be automatically enrolled.

All other students will be enrolled based on a random lottery of all students who register by the end of our first day of enrollment (March 11, 2015).   Students who enroll after March 11, 2015 will be placed based on the date and time of their enrollment.  Families will be notified of the status of their enrollment by Friday, March 20.
