A lottery will be held to fill vacancies each school year. Parents will be notified in writing when students have been selected through the lottery and approved for admission. The lottery will select students through a random list of numbers. An oversight committee consisting of district personnel and SAC members will monitor the lottery process to ensure fairness.
In the event that class enrollments are filled, a general waiting list will be maintained. The wait list will be maintained until January 10th of the school year. All parents will be notified in writing of their child’s position on the waiting list. All vacancies for the current school year will be filled from the waiting list. The waiting list does not carry forward to the following school year.
Appeals in hardship situations will be handled on an individual basis. The hardship must be in writing and addressed to the coordinating principal. A panel of four people, including the appropriate area superintendent and coordinating principal, will review the appeal.
