Openings are limited in all Specialty Programs. Availability
differs by program, location, and grade level. Submission of an application is
not a guarantee of placement. All applications are given a waiting list number
based on their Specialty Program choice, grade level, and sequence number.
The computerized lottery system will assign a random number to each application.
Applications are sorted based on this randomly assigned number and assign a
sequential number. The lowest random number is assigned number one, the next
lowest number two, and so forth. Applications are then sorted by program. Placements
are then made on space availability basis only.
The application form permits multiple Specialty Program choices per student. If
more than one Specialty Program choice is selected, each choice will be treated
equally and placement will be made according to the first available opening.
Placement is granted for one Specialty Program choice only. Once placement is
made, the other Program selections are no longer an option.
The lottery will be held on March 21, 2016. Announcement of student selection
will not be made at that time. Students selected through the lottery will be
notified by mail. Assignments will be made from the waiting list until
September 30, 2016. Waiting lists will not carry over to the following school
year. Continuous updates will not be provided. Notification will be made only when space becomes available.
