CFIS LOTTERY & REGISTRATION
*** Updated for the 2015-2016 school year ***
Corona Fundamental Intermediate School is a district-wide year-round magnet school which offers a fundamental educational program.
Any student living within the Corona-Norco Unified School District may request enrollment at CFIS. Parents are responsible for transportation to and from school. School hours are 8:00 a.m.-2:35 p.m.
Due to high demand, the District has established the following priorities for enrollment (these priorities do not pertain to late or waiting list applicants):
- Students living within the old Corona Jr. High school boundary.
- Students of CFIS employees.
- Students who will have an 8th grade sibling also attending CFIS for 2015-2016 school year (First priority determined by Track of 8th grade sibling to ensure family solidarity.)
- Bargaining unit members with children at a school with a year-round schedule will have priority in placing their children
on the same track as their teaching assignment. (CNUSD bargaining unit contract; this is not a priority for placement at CFIS.)
- Sixth grade students currently enrolled at Lincoln Alternative Elementary School (CFIS acceptance only - No track priority!)
- All other students.
All interest cards must be turned in by the deadline regardless of priority.
