Welcome to the Vista del LagoCounseling Department!Counseling Department Announcements and Updates
On Dec. 13, the Folsom Cordova Board of Education approved the criteria that will be used to determine registration priorities at Vista del Lago for the next school year. These priorities will help the school and District keep enrollment at a previously approved cap of 1,850-1,900 students, a short-term, temporary solution to help alleviate overcrowding.
Please open the attached document to see the final registration priority criteria the Board of Education approved. As a reminder, the school will not be accepting new Inter-District Transfer Permits (outside FCUSD boundaries) or new School Choice (inside FCUSD boundaries) requests at any grade level. Additionally, the school will be requiring three verified proofs of residency. Students interested in submiting a School Choice request to Folsom High or Cordova High must do so by Feb. 1st.
On Dec. 19: Vista distributed “Resident Student Enrollment" information forms to students during 2nd block. Folsom Middle School and Sutter Middle School students that reside in the Vista boundaries were given the same form.
Jan. 7-18: “Returning Student Enrollment" information forms and 3 Proof of Residency documents are due from students currently enrolled in FCUSD schools. Forms should be submitted to the student’s current school.
Feb. 1: School Choice forms are due and should be submitted to the student’s resident school. Note: For the 2019-20 school year, School Choice forms will not be accepted for Vista del Lago High School.

Students not currently enrolled in an FCUSD school in 2018-19 but residing within the Vista del Lago attendance area may be admitted next, if space remains at any grade level after processing the continuing FCUSD students residing within the Vista del Lago attendance area. 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 2019/20 school year.
The following are the instructions for new students and students returning from non-FCUSD schools:
Feb. 20th at 8:00am Indicate your interest to register your student by completing the Google Form that will be linked here. Students will be registered based on space available at each grade level and by date and time of submission.
