Once Address Verification is completed, students may submit a TIDE enrollment request through SUHSD’s established Open Enrollment process. As a reminder, Open Enrollment and TIDE enrollment requests are only for incoming 9th grade students. If you cannot submit a request online, please contact the Student Services Department at (650) 369-1411 ext. 22111.
Please click the button below if you wish to apply for enrollment at TIDE. Do not submit multiple applications as it may result in your application being deleted. Students will not be allowed to submit multiple Open Enrollment Transfer requests.
The enrollment window will close on February 1, 2019 at 4:00pm. Late applications cannot and will not be accepted. All requests for enrollment and Address Verifications must be completed by this date/time. The Student Services department will immediately analyze requests against allocated enrollment groups. Enrollment notices will be mailed soon thereafter, if no public drawing (lottery) is needed, according to the allocated enrollment groups:
Group 1 - Addresses zoned for Menlo-Atherton High School*: 60%**
Group 2 - Addresses zoned for other SUHSD schools: 40%
*includes those portions of the following zip codes zoned to M-A: 94025, 94027, 94028, 94062, 94063 and 94303
**in order to serve TIDE’s local school community and due to the impacted enrollment status of M-A
If a public drawing (lottery) is necessary, final preparations will be made to execute.
In the event that applications exceed available enrollment opportunities within either of the allocated enrollment groups, a random public drawing (lottery) will be conducted within each group in the following order:
Group 1: a randomly generated list will determine the order in which enrollments will be offered. Any Group 1 student not receiving an enrollment offer will be included in the Group 2 random public drawing (lottery), if one occurs, or will receive vacant Group 2 enrollment offers based upon the order of the randomly generated list.
Group 2: a randomly generated list will determine the order in which enrollments will be filled.
Additional information regarding the Public Drawing (Lottery):
Each student receiving an enrollment notice will be expected to confirm enrollment as soon as possible, or by the established deadline of March 8, 2019 at 4:00pm. Upon accepting an enrollment offer, TIDE becomes your student’s home school and parents/guardians are responsible for transportation. Enrollments not accepted by the deadline will result in the enrollment being offered to the next waitlisted student (if available).
Rolling enrollment notices will continue to be sent to students in waitlisted order, if enrollments become available. Students receiving these enrollment notices will be expected to confirm enrollment as soon as possible, or within 7 business days after the date listed on the enrollment notice.
If you do not receive an enrollment notification prior to the end of TIDE enrollment on April 30, 2019, your student will remain at his or her home school as identified by Address Verification. If additional seats become available after April 30, 2019, further enrollment offers will continue to be extended.
TIDE Academy will open its doors for the 2019-20 school year with a founding Freshman class. Any Freshman that resides within Sequoia Union High School District’s attendance boundaries may apply for TIDE enrollment through our established Open Enrollment process.
