On Monday January 11, CUSD begins the Open Enrollment period. This year, Kindergarten registration will also take place starting January 11. Open Enrollments for all grades K--6 for all elementary sites are done online at the CUSD website.
Families who live within the neighborhood boundary should come in to the school to register beginning January 11. You will need an original birth certificate, immunizations and utility bill as a proof of address.
If you are already a CTA-Goodman family and live outside the school boundary and have a NEW KINDERGARTEN student for 2016-17 , you will need to do an online form for THAT child. Once the online form for the K student is submitted, we welcome you to come to school and fill out your Kindergarten Registration.
If you are a family NEW to CTA-GOODMAN, you will have to wait for your Open Enrollment to be accepted by the District. Once you receive your confirmation letter, you may come in and formally register for school.
If you have a child already attending CTA-Goodman, you DO NOT need to do a new Open Enrollment sign up this year. We will be sending home our Returning Student form in early January. Your enrolled "boundary exemption" child will be considered a Priority 1 and will NOT NEED a new Open Enrollment form to be filled out. We hope to cut down on form filling!
All of the CTA campuses in Chandler will hold an Open House for prospective students on January 12th from 5:30--6:30 PM. This is intended for families who are exploring the CTA programs as a choice. Children are invited and teachers will do activities with them. Parents will be presented with an overview of the CTA program in general.

Your Tax Credit Donation Helps!
Thank you to all the families who have gone to Infinite Campus to pay the student Grade Level fee of $10. This fee gives back in many ways. First, it does help pay the costs for your child to participate in GREAT extracurricualr activities like Basha Art Museum tours, Halle Heart Museum trip, Be Kind Project, 3-Screens Character Assembly, a visit from an author, Childsplay performance, and even supplies for Art Masterpiece! The second way your help pays back is to YOU!! Each payment you make online gives you a TAX CREDIT on your AZ income tax for this year. Thank you for supporting your child's full, rich development while in school.
