Lottery, Admission Offers/Enrollment Packets/Waiting Lists

LOTTERY INFORMATION
To be part of the 2017-18 lottery, see Application Instructions.  Parents need not be present for the lottery, but are welcome to attend to view the lottery process.  Because some grades have existing waiting lists, you may not know if your child will receive an admission offer. Offers will be extended through SchoolMint at the end of March.
 
SCHOOL AVAILABILITY
Due to site capacity limits, it is possible that not all grades will have availability. Openings will be filled based on the order of each school's waiting list.
 
ADMISSION OFFERS
Admission offers will be extended to the primary contact in the family's SchoolMint account on/around March 30th.  Once the initial offers have been made, the applicant's "admission offer" or "waiting list" status can be viewed by logging into the family's SchoolMint account.The parent/guardian must ACCEPT or DECLINE any admission offer in SchoolMint within 24 hours of notification.
 
If the parent/guardian accepts an admission offer,  the applicant will be removed from all other waiting lists.  
 

If the parent/guardian declines an admission offer, or fails to decline an offer within 24 hours of notification, the applicant's offer will be declined, and the applicant will be removed from the offering school's waiting list.  The admission offer will then be extended to the next applicant waiting.

If the parent/guardian receives multiple admission offers for the same applicant, accept one offer only.  The applicant will be removed from all other school waiting lists once the admission offer of choice is accepted.   

 

ENROLLMENT PACKETS
Once an offer is received and accepted in SchoolMint,  the parent/guardian must click REGISTER to complete the student's enrollment packet within five (5) business days.   All document uploads must be in pdf format.   If the document contains multiple pages, save pages as one pdf file and then upload.
 
Submit your student's enrollment packet by the deadline.  We do understand that some items may take more time to complete. All students entering our schools must upload proof of all required immunizations before they can start school. Upload any missing items in SchoolMint as soon as they have been completed and RESBUMIT so that the enrollment packet can be reviewed and verified. Enrollment is not confirmed until the packet has been verified in SchoolMint.
 

Missing Items in Enrollment Packet?   The student's status in SchoolMint will be returned to "registration in progress" to allow missing documents to be uploaded. Remember to hit SUBMIT after uploading any new documents in SchoolMint. Your student's enrollment packet will be reviewed and the parent/guardian will receive a "verification notification" once the packet is complete.
