Students who do not reside within the Woodland Hills Elementary Charter boundaries must apply to the charter lottery by visiting the LAUSD Unified Enrollment site at APPLY.LAUSD.NET.  The 6 week window to apply opens in October and closes in mid-November of each year.   You may find more information under our "Charter Info" tab at the top of our main web page and selecting "Charter Lottery Preference and Procedures."  A random lottery drawing is held in February of each year if we receive more applications than space available.  The lottery will create a waitlist and does not guarantee placement.
