2021-2022 Open Enrollment
|Open Enrollment Begins||February 16, 2021|
|Enrollment Lottery Held||March 15, 2021|
|First Day of School||August 2, 2021|
|Open Enrollment Closes||August 29, 2021|
During the Open Enrollment period (February 16 - August 29), registrations will be accepted; however, you may be placed on a waitlist. Seat offers are determined based on available seats which varies by grade level.
Students who complete the enrollment process after the First Day of School (August 2, 2021) will be assigned a school start date after August 2, 2021.
When you see the Seal on a school website, you can be confident that your application will be included in the school lottery in a fair and transparent way.
Lotterease is an independent automated lottery system that the school uses to manage their lottery and waitlist. Since Lotterease is an independent system, the school staff do not have the ability to manipulate or adjust the lottery outcome. They must work within the requirements of the system.
In addition, all activity that takes place with your application is tracked in a history log that you can view at any time by logging into the parent portal.
If the school you want your child to attend displays the Lotterease Seal of Transparency and Fairness, you can rest assured that you child will get their fair chance to attend the school.
