All applicants who submitted enrollment applications before the open enrollment deadline become members of the applicant pool and are eligible to participate in the lottery system. Grade level vacancies are filled in priority order. Siblings of returning students will be given priority in the lottery process. District restrictions may apply. When there are more applicants than there is capacity to enroll, then a lottery shall be held to determine the order of enrollment.
In the lottery, applicants will be admitted in the order their names are drawn at random from the collection of applicants. Once capacity has been reached for a grade, the names are placed on a waiting list in the order in which they were drawn. After the lottery period ends, applications will be filed by date received. We create waiting lists for all the grade levels and will notify the next in line on the list if there are any vacancies.
