Applications received by 11:59 p.m. on April 1, 2016, will be included in the lottery. Applications received after that time, will be placed on a wait list in the order in which each application is received.
In the case of those applications received prior to 11:59 p.m. April 1, 2016, all applicant names will be placed in the lottery pool for each applicable grade and randomly pulled to fill each vacant seat. Admissions preferences will be given to the following categories of applicants, in this order: returning students currently enrolled, siblings of currently enrolled students who reside in the same home, students residing in CSD 9, applicants resident in New York State.
Once all available seats are filled, the remaining names will be pulled from the pool and put on a waitlist. In the event that a seat becomes available due to a student not enrolling after being chosen in the lottery or due to student attrition, the School will contact the families of the children on the waitlist in the date order in which they were placed on the waitlist to fill such seats. The waitlist is valid only for the 2016-2017 school year.
Within three business days of the public lottery, the School will notify the parents of all applicants by telephone, email, or U.S. Post whether their child was chosen in the lottery or placed on the waitlist. Parents will have 48 hours to notify the School of their intention to accept or decline a seat at the School. The failure to timely notify the School of an intention to accept a seat at the School will be deemed a decline. Parents have two weeks after accepting a seat to enroll their child in person at the School.
