Lottery Details

In the event that the number of applications exceeds the capacity of a program, class, grade level, or building, all eligible applicants shall have an equal chance of being admitted through a random selection process that complies with Florida law. A lottery will be held to determine which students will be accepted. The School will inform the Sponsor and the public of the registration period date, time and location of any required random selection process. The lottery will be held in public and/or witnessed by an independent third party. The Sponsor shall have the right to observe the process. The lottery will create a primary list of students and the initial waiting list from the students who have applied. Numbers will be randomly chosen to decide which students will be accepted into the school openings in each class offered. All students who are granted acceptance will be notified, and asked to respond whether they will be attending. If not, the next student on the list will be granted that position.
