LOTTERY POLICY

 

Applications for Enrollment will be accepted from December fifteenth through the 2nd Friday in February for each year (completing this form does not guarantee enrollment).  If applications exceed available seats, a lottery will take place and all applications received on or by this date will be placed on the “Eligible to Enroll List.” Applications received after this date will be placed on a waiting list (in the order received) after the lottery is complete.

 

If a lottery needs to take place (due to applications exceeding available seats) it will be held at 4:00 p.m. on the Wednesday following the 2nd Friday in February (the application deadline).  The result of the lottery determines who receives the available spots as well as the order of the waiting list. Parents of the students accepted under the lottery will be notified by no later than 4:00 p.m. on the Monday following the lottery.  If the name of a twin is drawn, the sibling will automatically follow.  If a twin is drawn for the last available space, the sibling will be first on the wait list.  The deadline for all families accepted to commit by completing a full registration packet will be March 15th.

Families on the wait list will be given their respective waiting list number by the end of February.  They will have the opportunity to earn a spot if a family declines their opportunity to enroll or if a family fails to complete a full registration packet by March 15th.  After the enrollment lottery, names will continue to be added to the bottom of the waiting list, in the order they are received.  Should an opening occur, Escuela Éxitos will consider all preferences as stated above. We will then contact the next person on our waiting list and due so subsequently until the position is filled. Confirmation of desire to enroll must be made by the student's’ parent/legal guardian within 48 hours of notice by completing a full registration packet. This process will continue until the opening has been filled.    

 

Per MN state law, applications cannot be held from year to year; therefore, any applications received after September 1st of each year will not be considered and a new application would be required once the application window opens during the following school year.   Enrollment shall continue if seats remain unfilled.

 

Escuela Éxitos shall be open to any child who is eligible under the laws of the State of Minnesota for admission to a public school. Escuela Éxitos shall ensure compliance with all applicable anti-discrimination laws governing public schools, including Minnesota Statute 124D.10.  Escuela Éxitos welcomes students of any race, color, creed, religion, national or ethnic origin, disability, and status with regard to public assistance, sex, and sexual orientation.
