LOTTERY

Each year a lottery is conducted at each grade level that has more pre-enrollments than seats available for that grade. The lottery is held in an open forum at the time and place listed in the informational materials and website. All lotteries are conducted in a manner that ensures each eligible student receives an equal chance of being selected. Pre-enrolled students’ names are drawn until the available seats for that grade level are filled. The remaining students’ names are drawn and placed on a waiting list in the order in which their name was selected. Once all grades are filled, any additional students who apply are placed at the end of the waiting list on a first come, first served basis.

NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION

Kindergarten students must be 5 years old on or before September 1.
First grade students must be 6 years old on or before September 1.

WAITING LIST

If a student from the lottery results list does not register (within the time allowed) or chooses not to attend the school, the first person on the ordered waiting list will be given the opportunity to register. This procedure will continue throughout the school year. Lottery and waiting list positions will not be secured from year to year. Those offered the opportunity to enroll during the school year will be given a deadline by which they must reply or the opening will be offered to the next student on the waiting list. It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian of the wait listed student to provide accurate contact information, including a phone number, address, and email address.
