Enrollment Procedure for CORE Butte

enroll school

CORE Butte offers an alternative education model that requires one-on-one parent participation. If you have any questions please call 530-809-4152 ext. 110 for enrollment help.

CORE Butte Charter School will not discriminate in its programs, admission policies, employment practices or all other operations as provided for in the California State Constitution, Article IX Section 8 and will not discriminate against any student on the basis of ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, disability, or any other protected class. Undocumented and non-citizen or permanent-resident parents should not fear that applying on behalf of their children or dependents will result in deportation or other immigration-related actions.

If the number of pupils interested in admission exceeds the number of available openings in an area or program, enrollment, except for existing students of the school, will be determined by a random public drawing. In this event, preference in the public random drawing may be granted to existing students, siblings of current students, children of staff, and residents of the County per CORE Butte's charter.

A random public drawing will be conducted in the Spring Semester for availability spots in our TK-8 and High School programs for the 2021-2022 school year. You may attend the lottery, which will be held either virtually or in the CORE Butte administrative conference room at 2847 Notre Dame Blvd, Bldg 25, Chico. Results of the lottery will be made available in the administrative offices of the school.

Health Care Coverage Options and Insurance Enrollment Assistance (AB2706)

Assembly Bill 2706 (Hernandez), signed into law in 2014, requires public schools to add an informational item about health care coverage to their enrollment forms. Pursuant to this legislation, and with the help of the California Department of Education and the ALL IN for Schools Campaign, Covered California has created a website designed to provide information about the health care options through Covered California and free, confidential, in-person help in their area.
By law, most people are now required to have health insurance or pay a penalty when they file their taxes. Through Covered California, a program from the state of California, qualified legal residents of California and their families can compare health insurance plans and enroll in the one that works best for their needs and budget. Financial assistance is available to qualifying individuals and families to help them pay for health insurance premiums. This means the federal government may pay a portion of the health insurance premium. Individuals and families may also qualify for Medi-Cal benefits.Undocumented and non-citizen or permanent-resident parents should not fear that applying on behalf of their children or dependents, who may be eligible for health coverage, will result in deportation or other immigration-related actions.
