Lottery Procedures

If the number of applications exceeds the available openings in a specific grade level, a public lottery will be held. The lottery will be held April 3 at 10 a.m. and will be observed and certified by a third-party individual. The lottery will be drawn by grade, beginning with kindergarten and ending with 6th grade until all spots are filled. 

Every student with a complete application by the application deadline will be entered into the lottery. All names, regardless of day or time of applying, have an equal chance of being selected. DREAM does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion, disability, national origin or socioeconomic status.

All applicants not selected for admission through the lottery will be placed on a wait list in the order in which their name is selected in the lottery. Lottery and wait list positions are not secured from year to year.

Enrollment Procedures

Students offered the opportunity to enroll must complete all enrollment paperwork and provide all requirement documentation by the date given. Failure to do so will forfeit the child’s spot and that spot will be offered to the next student on the wait list.
