Connect Community Charter School (CCCS), a brand-new K-8 school that recently joined the Redwood City School District (RCSD), is prepping for its first enrollment for the start of the 2013-14 school year.
The school's founders are already shopping for locations in classrooms within RCSD K-8 schools. They are looking toward campuses in the east side of Redwood City, such as Taft and Fair Oaks.
Therefore, the founders will be holding a series of three information nights for families interested in learning more about the school's plans and philosophy, as well as how and when they can apply their children for enrollment, should they choose to do so.
"We hope you’ll join us for answers to all your questions about Connect," said an e-mail update from the school last week. "Bring a friend or neighbor, and we'll have something fun to keep your children busy too."
Information will be available in both Spanish and English.
The following three events have been scheduled:
- Nov. 29, 2012, 7-9 p.m. at the Downtown Main Library
- Jan. 9, 2013, 7-9 p.m. at the PAL building on the campus of Taft Elementary School
- Jan. 29, 2013, 3-5 p.m. at the Boys and Girls Club
Enrollment forms for CCCS will be available Jan. 2, 2013 and due Feb. 28, 2013.
If the school gets more applicants than it has spots for, a lottery will be held in the first week of March, with applicants being notified by the following week.
CCCS' next board meeting, open to the public, will be held this Thursday, Nov. 8, at 7 pm. at the Downtown Main Library, 1044 Middlefield Road.
