    Application Process

    Step 1: Submit an ACP Application

    Applications for the 2020-2021 school year are available on either the ACP-Oakland or ACP-Erie website beginning October 14, 2019. Please make sure the email that you list on the “Family Primary Email” is one you check regularly and is entered correctly. Almost all communication is sent to this email address. This online ACP Application should be submitted online by January 13, 2020, to be considered for placement for the 2020-2021 school year. 


    Step 2. Submit an Open Enrollment Form

    District Office requires Open Enrollment forms be submitted by all students wishing to enroll at ACP. Open enrollment forms must be downloaded and printed from the district website beginning December 18, 2019.

    Families may submit the Open Enrollment form beginning at 7:30 AM on Monday, January 13, 2020. Open Enrollment forms will be date & time stamped and considered based on the date/time stamp within each priority level. You may turn in the Open Enrollment form to any CUSD secondary school, (junior high or high school), or the District Office. If you turn your open enrollment form in to another CUSD site, please call their office to check their hours. Open enrollment forms must be submitted in person. We are unable to accept emailed or faxed open enrollment forms. Camping is prohibited at any CUSD site and will not be allowed.


    Important Notes

    • All open enrollments will be accepted on January 13th beginning at 7:30amYou may turn in the Open Enrollment form to any CUSD secondary school, (junior high or high school), or the District Office. 
    • (NEW) In an effort to help the line move more quickly, we will not be checking the supporting documentation with the open enrollments. If it is discovered that an open enrollment is missing any required documentation, your original date and time stamp will become null and void. When the correct or missing documentation is submitted you will then receive a new time stamp.
    • If you submit an Open Enrollment form to an elementary school: When I receive the open enrollment form, your original date and time stamp will become null and void and will be issued a new date & time stamp when I received the open enrollment form. Elementary schools are unable to accept open enrollment forms for secondary schools. 
    • If you submit an ACP application but do not submit an open enrollment form, your application is incomplete. Conversely, if you submit an open enrollment form but not an ACP application, your application is incomplete. Incomplete applications will not be considered for approval at ACP. Enrollment to ACP will be considered based on the date and time stamp within each priority level of the Open Enrollment application.
    • Sibling priority only occurs when siblings will be attending the same ACP campus, concurrently. Sibling priority at ACP Oakland is not granted to students who have or will have siblings at ACP Erie and vice versa.
    • Providing false information on this application or submitting multiple applications will result in the application(s) being denied or admission being revoked. (per CUSD Open Enrollment application)
    • High school applicants who currently attend a high school outside of Chandler Unified School District and applying to enroll in grades 10-12 must provide a transcript along with their ACP application and the Open Enrollment form to ACP-Erie.


    If your student currently attends a school that is NOT part of the Chandler Unified School District, you must also provide the following documents when submitting your Open Enrollment Form: (All three reports are required)

    1. Current grade report (i.e. 7th grade applicants should provide their 6th grade report card that was provided in December at the end of the first semester.)
    2. Attendance report (for the first semester of the current school year, i.e. 2019-2020)
    3. Discipline report or a letter from school administration (on school letterhead) indicating no discipline infractions have occurred (for the entire time they have attended their school, i.e. K-6th grade). The letter must be signed by an employee of the school office and dated. Teacher comments and/or behavior sheets and/or attendance sheets from the parent portal will not be accepted.
    4. Current IEP* if your student currently has an IEP, you must print out your most recent IEP and submit it with your open enrollment. 


    3. Acceptance E-Mail

    All applicants will receive an email on January 21, 2020, stating whether your open enrollment application has been approved, declined, or if you are on a waitlist.


    Enrollment is based on the date & timestamp of your open enrollment form within your priority level.
