On Time Enrollment: November 4, 2019 – February 7, 2020
The On-Time Application deadline or the 2020-2021 school year was February 7, 2020. Applications received by this deadline will be included in our lottery, held on March 11, 2020 @ 4PM. On Thursday, 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 26, 2020. 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. 
Late Enrollment: February 8, 2020 - June 1, 2020
All late applications will result in the Candidate being placed at the end of the wait list generated by the school Lottery. If you miss the February 7, 2020 On-Time Application deadline, you will still be able to submit an online application for the 2020-2021 school year. Applications submitted after the February 7, 2020 deadline will be considered a Late Application - you will be placed on a waiting list at each of your selected schools, and/or offered enrollment if space becomes available.
