Many school districts in the state have their Open Enrollment window this month. I recommend signing up your kids in more than one school if more than one school interests you. Then when you're notified of an opening, you at least have the option.
Open Enrollment is a law that preceeds the Charter Schools Act of 1993. It allows parents to enroll their child in any public school as long as the family is willing to provide transportation. State law permits a district to designate a school as "full" and not accept Open Enrollments, but many do accept students. This law even allows students to cross district boundaries in order to attend the school of their choice.
Open Enrollment policies vary from district to district. Parents are encouraged to contact their district, or neighboring districts, because often the window for completing an Open Enrollment form differs.
