All applications will be checked by MATES staff for validity and accuracy.  If an employee of the school reasonably believes that the parent or legal guardian of a pupil has provided false or unreliable evidence of residency, MATES may make reasonable efforts to determine that the pupil actually meets the residency requirements set forth in the MATES charter.  Giving false or omitting information requested will risk or delay the processing of the student's application and could jeopardize enrollment at any time in MATES.
MATES is nonsectarian in its programs, admission policies, and all other operations.  MATES is open to all students regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, perceived sexual orientation, home language, or disability.  MATES shall admit all pupils who wish to attend the school up to capacity.
Following the open enrollment period, applications are counted to determine if the Personalized Learning Program exceeds capacity.  In the event that there are more applications than positions, MATES will hold a public random drawing to determine enrollment.
Admission preferences in the case of a public random drawing are given to the following students in the following order:
1)  Siblings of existing MATES students
2)  Children of employees of MATES up to 1% of the classroom based population
3)  Children who reside within the former attendance are of Meadows Elementary School at the time the MATES lottery is held
4)  Children of employees of MATES over 1% of the classroom based population
5)  Children who reside within the attendance area of Conejo Valley Unified School District                    6)  All other pupils
Students will be admitted at the time of the public random drawing according to preference group as space permits.  If there is insufficient capacity to fully enroll a specific preference group in its entirety, a random drawing of the applicants within the preference group will be performed to determine which applicants within that group will be offered enrollment.
Applicants not offered admission due to insufficient capacity will be given the option to put their name on a wait list, in order, according to their draw in the lottery.  Applicants who complete the enrollment process after the open enrollment period are considered post-lottery applicants and will be offered enrollment only after all wait listed applicants from the open enrollment period have been exhausted and on a first come first serve basis.  The wait list will remain active until the close of open enrollment for the following school year at which time no further students will be enrolled. Wait listed applicants may then re-apply for the following year.
