Vista del Lago capacity updates
Vista del Lago High School continues to experience its largest student enrollment since it opened more than a decade ago. Earlier this school year, the Board of Education took action to manage school capacity for the upcoming school year (2019-20), and in the coming months, the District will engage the community to review school boundaries to help permanently alleviate overcrowding.

In an effort to keep our communities informed throughout the process, the District has compiled these updated answers to some of the most frequently asked questions. Folsom Cordova will continue to update this information periodically.

Q: Has Vista del Lago reached its enrollment cap for the 2019-20 school year?
A: Yes. Any new enrollments, including families who move into Vista del Lago's boundaries, will be redirected to Folsom High School for registration. Those students also will be put on a waitlist for Vista del Lago should space open.

Q: What is the District's timeline for discussing boundary revisions?
A: The District anticipates making a recommendation for attendance boundary revisions to the Board of Education in the late fall of 2019, for implementation in the 2020-21 school year. Before any proposals are made, there will be multiple opportunities for input from staff, families, and students, including at least two public forums. More details will be communicated in the coming weeks.  

Q: What has the District done to alleviate overcrowding?
A: In December, the Board of Education approved criteria to determine registration priorities for the upcoming school year (2019-20). The priorities were developed to help the school and District keep enrollment at a cap of between 1,850-1900 students - a short-term, temporary solution to help alleviate overcrowding.

Current and incoming Vista del Lago students who live within the school's attendance area were given top priority. The school continues to deny new Inter-District Transfer Permits (outside FCUSD boundaries) or new School Choice (inside FCUSD boundaries) requests at any grade level.

Additionally, the school required three verified proofs of residency during registration, and it also conducted a residency audit.
