White Background



As required by law, admissions preference is granted to students who are residents of Vineland.
Younger siblings of students already enrolled in the school are also granted preference provided
the parents choose Vineland Public Charter School for that sibling. Enrolled students are
guaranteed admission the following year provided the appropriate grade is available. Students
who reside outside of Vineland are invited to apply for our kindergarten through grade 8
program. Preschool applicants must be residents of Vineland.
To be eligible for admission, the parent must provide 1) Two documents with current proof of
residence; 2) proof of minimum age of three/four years for preschool and five years as of the
date established by law or by regulation for preschool and kindergartners; 3) completed
application form. Application forms request: student's name; date of birth; grade level; address;
names, addresses, and telephone numbers of parents/guardians; names of siblings also applying;
and a signature verifying that the information is correct and that the parents/guardians are
choosing education at Vineland Public Charter School for their child. If accepted a Universal
Health form with current immunizations, Home language survey, and B6T for each attending
child, Transfer card from the current home district, and a signed verification form.

Lottery Process

If the number of applicants exceeds the grade level enrollment cap, a lottery process will be
instituted for applicant selection by a representative from Cumberland County Charter School
Network on the third Tuesday in January at 6:00 p.m. Prospective parents will be made aware of
open enrollment and the lottery on or before December 5: The lottery process is as follows: 1)
the pool of applicants will be sorted according to admissions preferences provided for by statute
and listed above (younger sibling, district resident) and by grade level; 2) within each grade
level, applications will be sorted according to these categories, arranged in order of admissions
preference: a) returning resident student; b) returning non-resident student; c) sibling of returning
resident student; d) new resident applicant; e) sibling of returning non-resident student; f) new
a non-resident applicant for space-available admission; 3) the Admissions Committee will reserve
spaces for students in categories a) and b). Any remaining spaces will be allocated by holding a
drawing of names by category in admissions preference order starting with category c) in the
oldest grade level and working down; 4) after all grade levels have been completed, names that
remain will be placed by preference category, in drawing order, on the school's waiting list.
Names are drawn one by one; as each student is drawn, that student and the applicant's siblings are
immediately placed in their respective grade levels.
