Applications received by this deadline will be included in our lottery, held on Wednesday, March 7th at 5:30pm. On Monday, March 12 you should see all your charter school lottery results (OFFER or WAITLIST) in your student dashboard and at that time you can ACCEPT/DECLINE an offer. The deadline to ACCEPT/DECLINE a charter school offer is March 29, 2018. If you do not accept by this date, the charter school lottery offer(s) will expire. Once you accept an offer, offers from other schools will be automatically declined. You can remain on waitlists but may only accept an offer at one school.  

If you missed the February 16, 2018 deadline, you will still be able to submit an online application for 2018/2019 starting February 21, 2018. Applications submitted after the February 16 deadline will be considered a Round 2 Application - you will be placed on a waiting list at each of your selected schools, and/or offered enrollment if space becomes available. Round 2 applicants will be placed on waitlists on a first-come first-served basis.
