The El Dorado Union High School District is offering limited open enrollment at Union Mine High School for the 2014–15 school year for incoming ninth grade students who reside within the El Dorado Union High School District attendance boundaries. The enrollment projection for the school’s permanent capacity will allow for 35 transfers.

Applicants may obtain the Limited Open Enrollment Request form and Instructions at the front office at each high school within the district, online at eduhsd.net, or at the District Office located at 4675 Missouri Flat Road, Placerville.

Assistant Superintendent for Student Services Steve Volmer said, “The district will consider only those request forms submitted during the Limited Open Enrollment Period (from Nov. 4 through Dec. 17, no later than 4 p.m). The district will perform a computer-generated random selection from all of the valid requests received by the enrollment deadline. A list will be developed based on this randomized numerical ranking, and the first 35 requests will be offered enrollment into Union Mine High School. If one of the initial 35 requests should decline the offer of enrollment, then the next request on the ranked list will be offered enrollment.”

Applicants should thoroughly read the instructions for Limited Open Enrollment for additional pertinent information regarding submission of forms, district policy regarding siblings, sports eligibility and parent’s responsibility for transportation to and from school.

Parents who have questions regarding the Limited Open Enrollment process may contact the District’s Student Services Office at 530-622-5081, ext. 7229 or 7224.

    This article does not give much information. In the past Union Mine had enrollment below 1,000. The school was actively recruiting students from all over the district. El Dorado Hills students living in the south and east end of housing developments were complaining about not being able to attend Oakridge Hi. Mary Muse lost a school board election to Del Rio with the help of Parker Development, the issue being open enrollment. So, miraculously they are at full capacity, except for 35 slots. Did the district gain that many new students thru home sales? Or, was the recruiting effort that successful? What's the real story?
