Red Bank, N.J. - On Thursday Jan. 10, 2013, the Red Bank Charter School (RBCS) held its annual lottery for admission to the school. This year the lottery was extended to include a 4 year old preschool class which will begin in the 2013-1014 school year. 

The lottery is held every January, and is open to children who are Red Bank residents.  Parents who wish to have their child(ren) entered into the admissions lottery must submit an application to the school.  There are no other admission criteria other than residency. Siblings of RBCS students are automatically granted a spot for enrollment. Children whose numbers were not selected are invited to be placed on the student waiting list for admission to the school.  The school is presently filled to capacity with 120 students on the waiting list.

RBCS enrollment cannot exceed 180 students in Kindergarten through grade 8 with 20 children in each class.  There is one class for each grade level, taught by a teacher and adjunct team. All teachers and adjuncts at RBCS are certificated teachers.

“The number of applicants suggests that there is strong interest in RBCS.  Our academic success, child-centered school climate, diversity and family atmosphere are the factors parents mention when asked why they apply.  Those are all very positive reasons for selecting a school for a child. We are pleased to have earned that reputation in the community.”

The preschool program will be funded by preschool state aid.  Funding is directly from that sate at 100% per pupil.   Regulations associated with this funding limits class size to a maximum of 15 students. The class will be taught with the same co-teacher model used throughout the school.   RBCS has selected Creative Curriculum as our instructional program. Creative Curriculum is one of the four endorsed by the state of New Jersey for programs funded with pre-school aid.  The instructional day will be six hours with before and aftercare available for all children.

Creative Curriculum provides maximum opportunity for children to learn through discovery; encouraging imagination, exploration and problem solving. The flexibility of the program permits teachers to weave in character education and service learning.  This ensures that even the very youngest children are introduced to the mission and beliefs of RBCS from their very first days of school.  For us, this is essential for developing the culture and positive learning environment that is RBCS. Pennotti said.

Parental involvement is a pivotal component of the pre-K program.  Parent workshops on an array of topics will be offered throughout the year and parents will be welcomed partners in the learning experience.  Because it is the first year of the program, parents will also have a substantial role in the development and set up of the early childhood program and classroom.  “Much of what makes charter run is the contribution of its parents. At charter parents, teachers, and community partners work together to build something very significant.  In this case, they are building the educational future for their children.”
