• Folsom Cordova Unified School District
    Vista del Lago High School Registration Policy
    Effective for the 2020/21 School Year

    Students enrolled in Vista del Lago High School, as either resident, School Choice, or on an Interdistrict Transfer Permit (ITP), in the 2019/20 school year will be allowed to finish their educational career at that school, provided that they remain within the boundaries or at the same residence at time of School Choice or ITP approval and adhere to the terms of the School Choice or ITP Agreement.

    Space for at least the next three years at Vista del Lago High School will be limited.  No new School Choice students and/or Interdistrict Transfer Permits will be permitted.  Once Vista del Lago reaches capacity, students will be redirected to Folsom High School.  Please note - acceptance into Vista del Lago does not guarantee a parking space.

    2020/21 registrations at Vista del Lago High School will be processed in the following order:

    • Current students in grades 9-11, continuing from FCUSD schools, including students that were redirected to Folsom High, that live within the Vista del Lago attendance area that provide three verified proofs of residency, and who have completed and been accepted through the PowerSchool Online Registration process by the registration closing date for the 2020/21 school year, will have the first priority and will be admitted in order based upon the PowerSchool Online Registration date/time stamp. All FCUSD students that miss the registration deadline will be placed in priority status number 5.

    If space remains at any grade level after processing the continuing FCUSD students residing within the Vista del Lago attendance area, registrations will be processed based on the following priorities and electronic submission date, to fill that space:

    • Incoming students in grade 9, continuing from FCUSD schools, that live within the Vista del Lago attendance area that provide three verified proofs of residency[1], and who have completed and been accepted through the PowerSchool Online Registration process by the registration closing date for the 2020/21 school year will be admitted in order based upon the PowerSchool Online Registration date/time stamp. Of this group of students, priority will be given to students with a sibling who will be attending Vista del Lago in the 2020/21 school year.

    • Students not currently enrolled in an FCUSD school in 2019/20, but residing within the Vista del Lago attendance area may be admitted. This includes new students and students returning from non-FCUSD schools who reside in the Vista del Lago attendance area.  Of this group of students, priority will be given to students with a sibling who will be attending Vista del Lago in the 2020/21 school year.

    • Students of full-time district employees (certificated and classified).

    • Continuing FCUSD Vista del Lago resident students that did not complete the PowerSchool Online Registration process by the registration closing date for the 2020/21 school year.

    • Any other Vista del Lago resident students that did not complete the PowerSchool Online Registration process by the registration closing date for the 2020/21 school year.

    Note:   For priorities 1 and 2, students who move out of or leave the Vista del Lago attendance area may continue their education at Vista del Lago for that current school year only.  Those students would then follow the above listed priorities.

    [1] Current 2019/20 8th grade students at Folsom Middle School that promoted out of the FLES program at Folsom Hills Elementary School and do not live in the Vista del Lago attendance area must provide proof of promotion from the FLES program to be included in Priority 2.
