Admission to Chabot Elementary and other schools in the Oakland Unified School District is determined by the district’s Student Welcome Center, which is responsible for registering and assigning all OUSD students. This office is located at:

The school selection process begins in December, when parents or guardians submit Selections Application forms to the district. These forms are available from the SAO or from any public elementary school in Oakland. When submitting the application, you must also bring proof of your child’s age (birth certificate, passport, I-94 or a transcript or report card from a California school), and three original documents to verify your address, such as utility bills, automobile registration with proof of insurance, homeowner or renter’s insurance policy, property tax statement, rental agreement, grant deed or title to your home, property tax statement or official letter from a social service or government agency. Selections applications are submitted to the Student Assignment Office in January. The SAO reviews the applications and assigns each child to a school. Families will receive an assignment letter sometime in the spring.

Kindergarten Entry Age

Children must turn five on or before September 1 of the year they enter kindergarten.
