Click here to submit an online enrollment form in English for the 2022-23 school year. Fill out a separate form for each student you seek to enroll. This form will not accept applications before Jan. 15, 2022.
Applications for enrollment that are received and date stamped on or before 3:30 p.m. Fri., April 1, 2022 will be included in the initial enrollment lottery. Applications received after this deadline will be placed on wait lists.
FGCS, under state law, gives priority to applicants who reside within the Forest Grove School District. Out-of-district residents may be admitted on a space-available basis.
Applicants may be asked to provide verification of residence in the Forest Grove School District if we have any questions. You will be contacted individually if this applies to your application.
Who May Enroll - Eligible Students Our enrollment policy, dictated by state law, gives first priority to students residing within the Forest Grove School District. We also give priority to siblings of current FGCS students but this priority does not guarantee that a student will receive a spot and parents must still complete the enrollment process. Students residing outside the District may apply for enrollment and be admitted if spaces are available after all interested District applicants have enrolled.
Lottery If there are more applicants than spaces available at any grade, state law requires that admission be determined by lottery. The lottery for the 2022-23 school year will take place at 12 p.m. Fri., April 15, 2022 at FGCS. A link to register to view the lottery on Zoom will be emailed to parents whose students will be part of the lottery. Contact Karen Torry at email@example.com if you d0 not receive this link.
Important Note About Sibling Applicants: State law allows FGCS to give priority for admission to siblings of currently enrolled students, but this priority applies ONLY during the open enrollment period January 15-April 1, 2022. Sibling applications submitted after the April 1 deadline do not receive priority, but will be placed on wait lists the same as other applicants. Siblings of current students are NOT guaranteed a spot, even if they apply during open enrollment, because there may be more sibling applications than there are spaces available; in that case, a separate sibling lottery will be held.
Two waiting lists for each grade will be established for those who do not receive a place during the lottery: one for students who reside inside the Forest Grove School District (see above for information about verifying residence) and one for those who reside outside the District. Position on the waiting list is determined during the initial lottery process for applications received by 3:30 p.m. April 1, 2022. Spaces will be offered to all students on the in-district waiting list before spaces are offered to students on the out-of-district waiting list.
Students who apply for enrollment after the April 1, 2022 deadline will be placed on the list based upon date of application. Applicants will be notified of their position on the waiting list and spaces will be filled in numerical order from the list. Waiting lists are maintained until the end of the relevant school year; they do not carry over from year to year.
Fall 2022 Registration: Please be aware that being offered a space at FGCS does not finalize your child's enrollment. Parents must confirm their intent to enroll by phone or email, and must fill out and turn in registration paper work before school begins (a deadline will be listed on registration papers made available over the summer). Failure to submit registration paperwork by the deadline will result in your child's space being forfeited.
No student or applicant for enrollment as a student at Forest Grove Community School shall be discriminated against in any educational program or activity on the basis of race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, ethnicity, national origin, disability, income level, proficiency in the English language or athletic ability. Enrollment of any student receiving special education services pursuant to an Individual Education Plan must be approved by the student’s IEP team.
