Once you have attended the Information Meeting and participated in Open House visits you will have the opportunity to fill out an application, have your child screened, and participate in the lottery. If you hand your application in after the deadline please note that you will not be part of the lottery, but will be placed on the Wait List.
Applicant names will be put in two categories-Spanish Dominant and English Dominant. Applicants will also be divided in the lottery by school zones-an equal ratio of students will be pulled in the lottery from each of the other 4 elementary schools. 48 names will be pulled in total-24 English-dominant and 24 Spanish-dominant. Once the initial 48 names are pulled in the initial lottery the remaining names will be selected for the Wait List in the order in which they are pulled. In the event that an applicant pulled in the lottery declines his/her spot, the next applicant on the Wait List will be contacted. This would be based on language-dominance. If an English-dominant applicant declines, we would call the next name on the English-dominant Wait List. The same would go for a Spanish-dominant applicant. If we do not hear from an applicant by the deadline we will call the next person on the Wait List.
If an applicant declines his/her spot, the applicants from the Wait List need to be given ample time to make a decision. We therefore cannot give more time for a decision than is allotted for on the timeline. Please note that we will make three attempts to contact anyone pulled in the lottery. We will use all forms of communication listed on the application. If we are unable to contact you after three attempts, we will call the next person on the Wait List.
