Once authorized, Kidinnu Academy Charter School will seek to recruit a diverse student body that reflects the racial, ethnic, and economic diversity of the general population residing within the District. Kidinnu Academy will be nondiscriminatory, nonsectarian in its programs, admission policies, employment practices, and all other operations.
Kidinnu Academy will serve students in transitional kindergarten through fifth grade. The school will serve up to 198 students in its first year at St. Peter’s Chaldean Catholic Church’s educational building.
Year 1 (2019-20), Kidinnu will serve students in transitional kindergarten through third grade.
Year 2 Kidinnu will serve students through fourth grade.
Year 3 and beyond, Kidinnu will serve students through fifth grade.
The Kidinnu Academy will establish an open enrollment period of at least 30 consecutive days prior to the commencement of the school year. Should Kidinnu Academy receive a number of applications from potential students exceeding the number of spaces available within the school, the school will conduct a random public lottery complying with all State laws. The lottery process will be communicated to all interested parties at least 30 days prior to holding the lottery. Notice of the open enrollment period, the admissions process, and the place of any lottery, location, and time, will be included in public announcements.
Kidinnu Academy’s student population will come from families who are looking for an alternative education, one that offers inquiry-based instruction, science-technology “STEAM” infused curriculum with blended learning and computer literacy, a legacy focus, fine arts integration, classical literature, character development, Aramaic language, and a small class size. The number of students per class will be small enough to enable more teacher-student interaction and an optimum size for increased student participation with 22-25 students per classrooms.
