Based on the Round 1 Lottery results, these schools have space available in the grade levels listed below. Space available does not include wait pools.


If you applied in Round 1 and received a letter stating you have been placed in the school of your first choice, that assignment will not change.

If you applied in Round 1 and did not get placed in the school of your first choice, you’ll automatically be enrolled for later rounds.

The lottery is always working to place each student in their top preference. This may mean your assignment changes after each round if your preference is available. Assignment changes in the lottery process are automatic – there is no option to accept or decline.

Waitlists will not be generated until the end of the Round 3.

A notification letter will be mailed to you after each round of the lottery with your assignment. If you get placed into a school of higher preference, you will receive a new letter. If you receive an assignment letter stating you have been placed in the school of your first choice, that assignment will not change.

We will start to call with assignment changes from the waitlist during the summer months. You will have the option to stay in your current assignment or choose the waitlist seat. This option is only available after the lottery rounds have closed and for the waitlist process only.
