One Newark Enrolls

What is One Newark Enrolls?

One Newark Enrolls is the new Universal Enrollment System People’s Prep has chosen to participate in. It consists of one application for all Newark residents. All traditional Newark public schools are members of the new system as well as 16 charter schools in Newark. There is now one application to apply to all of these schools.

How does One Newark Enrolls work?

The paper and online application will launch on January 6th. The paper application is available at all Newark Public Schools, all charter schools that have chosen to participate in the system and at Enrollment Centers (location centers to be announced). The online application can be found at https://newarkenrolls.force.com. Families are allowed to rank their Top 8 schools on the application. The application deadline is February 14th.

Do I need anything to fill out the one page application for One Newark Enrolls?

Every student needs their ID memo from their current school in order to apply to a new school. The application will ask you for this numerical code so don’t lose it.

When is the lottery for People’s Prep?

PPCS will no longer host a lottery since it has opted into the One Newark Enrolls system.

How will students be assigned to a school?

February 14th is the last chance for families to rank their Top 8 choices. After this date, a computer software called an algorithm will generate matches based on the order in which you rank schools. All families will receive their school assignments in April 2014 based on their selections.

How can I secure a spot at People’s Prep?

The higher you rank People’s Prep on your Top 8, the greater the chances are for your student to attend our school. We suggest ranking People’s Prep no lower than Top 3!

What should I do if I want to keep my student at People’s Prep?

Absolutely nothing. This application applies only to students that are in transitional grades or want to transfer out of their current school.
