Lottery Process

We will run separate lotteries for each priority category of student in each grade.

We will use a random sequence generator (Random.org) to generate a random number sequence.

This will be overlaid on the roster of applicants, and sorted by number to determine the order of the lottery.

We will post the results of the Lottery on the school website by Unified Enrollment application number.

These results are unofficial, until you receive a selection letter from the district.
