VERIFYING PREFERENCES

Natomas Charter School conducts a three-step preference verification process. The first step occurs during your intake meeting, the second step is completed by our office staff and the final step is an email confirmation that will be sent out on Monday, February 25, 2019 at 4:00PM to all applicants who have completed the entire application process. No reply is necessary to this email if all preferences are correct. You must contact the office no later than Monday, March 4, 2019 at 4:00PM if you have any corrections to your preferences.
 

Waitlist process

Immediately following the lottery, seated and waitlist information will be sent via email and posted in your Infosnap account. If you are offered a spot you will need to accept or decline by Friday, March 15, 2019 at 4:00PM. This deadline is extremely important so that we can properly schedule students for next year.
 
If you are offered a seat in multiple academies, you may only choose one spot.

Any offers not accepted by Friday, March 15, 2019 at 4:00PM may be given to the next family on the waitlist.
