Waitlists and Lottery
WAITLISTS AND LOTTERY
Admission is open to students on a statewide basis. The School will admit the number of students that do not exceed the capacity of the School’s programs, classes, grade levels or facilities. The School will not limit admission to students on the basis of intellectual ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, or athletic ability. Priority for enrollment shall be given to returning students. Preference may also be given to siblings of students attending the school the previous year and students who are children of full-time staff members employed by the school. The preference provided to children of full-time staff members shall be less than five percent of the school’s total enrollment. If on the deadline date for a lottery drawing the number of applicants exceeds the capacity restrictions set for the School’s programs, classes, grade levels or facilities, a lottery drawing will be held.
Any and all enrollment period(s) will be as stated on the School’s website; if enrollment exceeds capacity a lottery will be conducted. The lottery drawing places children in order for possible enrollment into the school. As the School operates and accepts students year round, if other places become available (after the lottery), students are accepted from a prioritized wait list based on the results of the lottery or, if there is no waitlist, then on a first come first serve basis. If a lottery is necessary, it shall take place at a public location. All parents of children selected in the lottery will be notified of the selection by email. Parents will have up to seven (7) days from receipt of the email to contact the School regarding their decision. If a parent does not respond within seven (7) days of receipt of the email, the school will select another child from the lottery.
