Apply to Downtown Value School

Downtown Value School is open to all students eligible to attend, regardless of abilities, disabilities, or where they live. If the number of students applying to Downtown Value School exceeds the number of enrollment slots available, California Charter laws state that a public lottery must be held where students are placed on an enrollment waiting list to determine which students will have the opportunity to attend.

Applications for Downtown Value School are accepted beginning each July for the following school year. The lottery is held on the second Thursday each February. Spots are not guaranteed, and you do not have to be present for the drawing to be accepted to the school.

Siblings of students currently enrolled in Downtown Value School and students related to Downtown Value School staff have priority on the waitlist and will be offered a space before other applicants during the lottery.  However, siblings of students currently enrolled who apply after the lottery is held will be placed at the end of the waiting list after non-siblings.

Before attending Downtown Value School for the first time, a student must be admitted to the school. The admission process includes a parent induction program and a student orientation. A parent's decision to attend in no way impacts the student's admission or enrollment.

For more detailed admission policies, please refer to the Downtown Value School Charter.

You can download and complete a PDF lottery application and return it to the school, or complete the form below.

Charter School Complaint Notice

Charter schools are not allowed to discourage a pupil from enrolling or seeking to enroll in the charter school because the pupil exhibits any characteristics such as students with disabilities, academically low-achieving, English learners, neglected or delinquent, homeless, socioeconomically disadvantaged, foster youth, or based on nationality, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. Charter schools are not allowed to request a pupil's records before enrollment or encourage a child who is enrolled in a charter school to disenroll or transfer to another school. A parent, guardian, or pupil (18 years or older) may file a Charter School Complaint Form to the authorizing entity if they suspect the charter school is in violation of Education Code Section 47605(d)(4).
