Enrolling Your Student at CORE

Enrollment Procedure for CORE Butte

CORE Butte offers an alternative education model that requires one-on-one parent participation. Attendance at an orientation meeting for interested families is a part of the enrollment process. The enrollment process consists of this orientation and an enrollment meeting. Please follow the steps below to begin the process. If you have any questions please call 530-809-4152 ext. 110 for enrollment help.

CORE Butte Charter School will not discriminate in its programs, admission policies, employment practices or all other operations as provided for in the California State Constitution, Article IX Section 8 and will not discriminate against any student on the basis of ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, disability, or any other protected class. Undocumented and non-citizen or permanent-resident parents should not fear that applying on behalf of their children or dependents will result in deportation or other immigration-related actions.

If the number of pupils interested in admission exceeds the number of available openings in an area or program, enrollment, except for existing students of the school, will be determined by a random public drawing. In this event, preference in the public random drawing may be granted to existing students, siblings of current students, children of staff, and residents of the County per CORE Butte's charter.

A random public drawing will be conducted on February 1st for availability spots in our high school program for the 2019-2020 school year. Results of the lottery are available in the administrative offices of the school.

Step 1 - Place your Name on our Interest List
We request all potential families to attend an orientation prior to enrollment. Please fill out the information requested to begin the process and to be notified about an upcoming orientation that outlines CORE Butte's educational model.
Step 2 - Start RegOnline
After you have completed step 1 complete RegOnline, CORE's student information collection system. From this link you can begin or continue RegOnline as well as send a password reset request. The process is self guided and should take about 30 minutes to complete. Please be sure to indicate the grade level your student will be entering when filling out RegOnline.
If you are interested in enrolling for the next school year (rather than the current school year), please be aware that you may be asked to confirm the information provided here sometime before the school year begins.
Step 3 - Complete the Titan Meal Application
The Meal Application takes the place of the Household Data Collection form that we have asked families to complete in the past. Even if you are not anticipating taking advantage of the breakfast program, please fill out an application. The income survey is instrumental in obtaining the necessary funding for our school operations.
Health Care Coverage Options and Insurance Enrollment Assistance (AB2706)
Assembly Bill 2706 (Hernandez), signed into law in 2014, requires public schools to add an informational item about health care coverage to their enrollment forms. Pursuant to this legislation, and with the help of the California Department of Education and the ALL IN for Schools Campaign, Covered California has created a website designed to provide information about the health care options through Covered California and free, confidential, in-person help in their area.
By law, most people are now required to have health insurance or pay a penalty when they file their taxes. Through Covered California, a program from the state of California, qualified legal residents of California and their families can compare health insurance plans and enroll in the one that works best for their needs and budget. Financial assistance is available to qualifying individuals and families to help them pay for health insurance premiums. This means the federal government may pay a portion of the health insurance premium. Individuals and families may also qualify for Medi-Cal benefits.
Undocumented and non-citizen or permanent-resident parents should not fear that applying on behalf of their children or dependents, who may be eligible for health coverage, will result in deportation or other immigration-related actions. For more clarification, read the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement memo on health enrollment and immigration in English or in Spanish.
For free, confidential, in-person help, in your area, or to learn more, compare health insurance plans, choose the one that best fits your needs and enroll online, visit or call (800) 300-1506.

  8. How does your child feel about participating in home-based education and Personalized Learning?
  9. What are your educational and personal goals for your child? What are your child's goals?
  10. What supported or hindered your child from reaching these goals in his/her previous school?
  11. If your child did not reach his or her goals in the previous school, what leads you to believe that Personalized Learning will enable your child to overcome these previous difficulties?
