Parents of currently enrolled students will be requested to submit re-enrollment forms for each student returning for the 2016-17 school year, between Nov. 10 and Nov. 25. Parents who submit the re-enrollment form during this time period will be guaranteed admission for their students for the upcoming school year.
General Enrollment Policy and Procedure
Beehive Science & Technology Academy (BSTA) is an open-enrollment public charter school. Therefore, it is open to all eligible students on a space-available basis and does not discriminate in its admissions policies or practices on the basis of race, color, national origin, creed, sex, ethnicity, sexual orientation, mental or physical disability, age, religion, ancestry or athletic performance. All parents wishing to enroll their students in BSTA must complete and return an Application for Enrollment. First preference in admissions is given to currently enrolled students. Second preference is given to children of founding members of the school. Third preference is given to siblings of students already enrolled in the school. The remaining spaces will be filled by open enrollment applicants. Open enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year begins on December 5, 2016 and ends on February 3, 2017. If, at the end of the open enrollment period, the number of Open Enrollment Applicants exceeds the number of seats available for any grade, a lottery will be held on February 3, 2017 to determine which applicants will be enrolled in that grade. For detailed information about the lottery procedure, please find the BSTA Lottery Procedure document below. If, at the end of the open enrollment deadline, there are still openings, we will continue accepting applications until all openings for new students are filled.
If, at the end of the open enrollment deadline, there are still openings, we will continue accepting applications until all openings for new students are filled. All the parents of the students selected in the lottery will be contacted following the lottery with additional information. The parents of a child selected for the enrollment must accept the position by returning the completed registration forms and fees by February 18th, 2017. If the registration forms and fees are not timely completed and received, the enrollment will be terminated and the next student on the waiting list will be considered for enrollment on that slot. If parents thereafter desire to enroll their student at BSTA, their application will be placed at the end of any existing wait-list for the grade in which the student desires to enroll. Enrolled students are required to take math placement test. Parents of these students need to call the front office to make an appointment for their students to take the test. Testing is usually scheduled during the summer prior to the school year.
Note 1: Applicants who are not admitted for the 2017-2018 school year will be required to re-apply the following year. Moreover, the waiting list for 2016-2017 school year will not carry over into the 2017-2018 school year.
