Enrollment with Dehesa Charter School
Enrollment in DCS vs. Enrollment in a Learning Center Course
Dehesa Charter School is a nonclassroom-based charter school. Students at the Charter School are educated through independent study in accordance with the terms of an approved master agreement, the Dehesa Charter School approved charter, and applicable laws.
Learning Center Instruction is one of many curricula resources used to personalize a student’s learning plan. Classes are offered at various sites throughout the three counties served by Dehesa Charter School; each having schedules and course offerings independent of the others.
Learning Center Courses are designed for students who can benefit from some coursework delivered in classroom
setting and can complete the coursework as assigned by the classroom teacher in a timely manner. Dress and
behavior codes are set for each site and strongly maintained. Course grades are determined, in part, by the grade
earned in learning center classes. To register for learning center classes, students must first be enrolled in
Dehesa Charter School.
After determination by the Educational Facilitator that Learning Center instruction is a good fit for the student,
registration may be completed online by the Educational Facilitator, parent, or student. The registration form is
reviewed by the Regional Manager who verifies EF recommendation and determines availability. If a requested
class is full, the student will be placed on a waiting list which is monitored by the Regional Manager. Students are
placed in classes in the order of the date their class registration form was submitted.
No student shall participate in learning center classes without signed Medical Release and Conduct Agreement
forms on file.
