PLEASE do not reply to this email Juan Raygoza, Vice Principal juanraygoza at berkeley.net or your 9th grade Guidance Counselor - Linh Le for Hives 1, 2, and 3 or Norma Lopez for Hives 4, 5, 6, and 7 - if you have any questions.
I would like to inform families of BHS 9th grade students that if your student entered the Small Learning Communities (SLCs) Lottery for the 10th grade we have now mailed, at your address of residence as shown on Illuminate, an SLC Lottery Report detailing your student’s ranking.
Please review your student’s ranking carefully. If you would like to edit your student’s SLC Lottery ranking (see lottery guidelines below), please do so directly on the Report and return it to the BHS Counseling Office by no later than Thursday, February 28th at 3:30pm.
Small Learning Community Lottery Guidelines
The ranking rules are as follow:
Your student will rank their top choice as #1, second choice as #2, etc.
Your student MUST rank both AC and BIHS - our two largest SLCs
Your student MAY also rank the three smaller SLCs - AHA, AMPS, and CAS - IN ADDITION to ranking both AC and BIHS
Since our three smaller SLCs have limited seats, which means that not every student that desires a small SLC will get in, your student must include AC and BIHS in their ranking
If your student decides to rank AHA, AMPS, and/or CAS, they DO NOT have to rank all three of these SLCs, only the one(s) that they desire to be placed in
See below for example rankings to avoid common mistakes:

The goal of the computerized lottery assignment system is to provide a fair and equitable method for school assignments while prioritizing individual choice and ensuring student diversity across the enrollment of all of Berkeley High School’s Small Learning Communities.
In early-March, you will be mailed the SLC Lottery result with your student’s placement in one of our five SLCs. THE SLC LOTTERY RESULT IS FINAL.
Nicole Chee, Marguerite Fa-Kaji, Jenny Fosket, and Dylan Kaufman are the parent-volunteer facilitators of the Etree; please direct any questions about the Etree to them at bhs-owner at lmi.net.
