Open enrollment for elementary schools
Open Enrollment Request forms will be available at all Manteca Unified elementary schools beginning Wednesday, April 1.

 Open Enrollment Request forms for elementary schools are to be turned in to the school of residence between Wednesday, April 1 and Thursday, April 30, for possible placement in the fall semester of the 2009-10 school year.  All applications will be date and time stamped when received at the school of residence.  All elementary request forms will need to be renewed every school year.  If there are more applicants than space available at any given school, a waiting list will be established in the order in which applications were received.  Students applying for open enrollment are enrolled in their school of residence until a final determination is made.

Parents of pupils who will be in grades one through eight will be notified of the status of their request after June 1, 2009.  Parents of pupils who will be entering kindergarten will be notified of the status of their request by the end of the second week of school.  Kindergarten pupils should be enrolled in the school of residence until a determination is made.  

Transportation to and from a school of choice will be the responsibility of the parent/student applicant.

“Measure M” oversight committee openings
Manteca Unified School District is currently seeking interested parents/individuals to fill three vacant committee seats which will become open in June.

Measure M is a General Obligation Bond approved by the voters within the Manteca Unified School District area in the General Election of March 2, 2004. As required by law the Manteca USD Board of Trustees established and appointed a citizens’ oversight committee. The purpose of the committee is to “inform the public at least annually in a written report, concerning the expenditure of the Measure M Bond proceeds.” Committee members, who are volunteers from the community, are appointed by the Board of Trustees to serve a term of two years.

The Measure M Citizens’ Oversight Committee meets on a quarterly basis on the second Wednesday of the month (September, December, March & June) at 6 p.m. in the Manteca USD Boardroom.
