  • For the 2022-23 school year,  we have 150 seats for 6th-grade students.  From the first lottery, 114 seats were filled. We have reviewed the applications for this lottery and found that 2 students qualify for an admission preference as specified in the JJMS Charter and detailed on the lottery form and on our website.  We have more applicants than spaces available for 6th grade. Therefore, the lottery will proceed to fill 36 available seats. 
  • For the 2022-23 school year,  we have 150 seats for 7th-grade students.  We are delighted to see that our current students are planning to return.  This means that we will have 16 seats available for 7th in the 2022-23 school year.  From the first lottery, 7 seats were filled.   We have more applicants than spaces available for 7th grade. Therefore, the lottery will proceed to fill 9 available seats. 
 
  • For the 2022-23 school year,  we have 150 seats for 8th-grade students.  We are delighted to see that our current students are planning to return.  This means that we will have 15 seats available for the 8th grade in the 2022-23 school year.  From the first lottery, 8 seats were filled. We have more applicants than spaces available for 8th grade. Therefore, the lottery will proceed to fill 7 available seats. 
  • The lottery will be processed through PowerSchool Enrollment and streamed via Zoom. This process will be supervised by a JJMS Board member, recorded, and posted on our school website.  The Administrators of the school will project a screen that shows the live process. At the end of this process, a JJMS administrator will ask if anyone has questions.

Waitlist Information

 

The JJMS Charter includes the following Admission Requirements in 

Element 8 ,Section (D), #8 .

Preference is extended to siblings of currently enrolled students, this would be any child who has the same legal guardian or parent of a currently enrolled JJMS student. 

 

Preference is extended to the children of JJMS staff including teachers, paraprofessionals, classified staff, administrators, and members of official councils (ELAC and SSC) and to the children of the JJMS Board of Trustees. This preference shall not exceed 10% of the total enrollment. The purpose of this preference is to maximize the availability of parents/guardians as part of the school community. Also, this preference allows parents/guardians who are often on campus to be in close proximity to their own children to allow easier execution of parental duties while minimizing the impact on school operations. For example, if a parent had to travel to another campus to pick up their student or to meet with a teacher, there would be a negative impact on the child, the parent, and the operations of JJMS.

 

When a person on the waiting list is offered a space at the school, they shall be notified by phone (at least 3 attempts) and shall be given 24 hours to respond to the third phone call.

 

Waitlist Process

  • March 31, 2022 – The school will have confirmation of all accepted students from the March 19, 2022 Lottery. If anyone declines or does not respond within the indicated time, we will call the next person on the waitlist.  Anyone who applies to JJMS after March 18, 2022, 11:59 PM  may be placed into the lottery for the second lottery to be held on April 9th, 2022.
  • May- A second lottery is held to assign waitlist order to all applications that were submitted after the first lottery that was held in March 2022.
  • June - The school will call all families that have officially accepted a space for the 2022-2022 school year. If anyone who accepted admission withdraws from our list, we will call the next student on the waitlist to fill that seat.
  • August – The school will call any families that did not show up to the first official school event. If anyone indicates that they no longer plan to enroll, we will call the next person on the waitlist.
  • August 15, 2022 (First Day of School)- The school will contact the families of any students who do not show up, and the absent students will be contacted by phone/text/email that they are forfeiting their space at the school. The absent students will be allowed to show up on the second day of school to claim their seat.  If there are any available seats after 11am on the second day of school, JJMS will contact additional students according to the order they are listed on the waitlist.
