Sibling Preference Process

    Prince George’s County Public Schools give lottery preference to new students who already have a sibling in the school. Siblings must live in the same household, have the same responsible parent/guardian, and both siblings must be enrolled at the charter school for the 2019-20 school year. Families must submit a valid lottery application by the deadline to be eligible for sibling preference.

    In order to apply for sibling preference, you must submit a regular lottery application during the public charter school open enrollment season from November 1, 2018 through January 25, 2019.  Your confirmation will indicate “Prospective Sibling – A sibling is currently attending at this school” next to the school choice.

    Sibling preference is based on seat availability and never a guarantee. If there is more sibling preference request than seats available, a sibling lottery will be held to determine placement.

    Changes to the lottery application is permitted only during the open lottery period. Once the lottery closes on January 25, 2019 parents will not be allowed to make changes.

    Please keep all email confirmations as your record of lottery entries.
