Lottery Process

If we receive registrations beyond our capacity, a lottery will be held to determine which students can be admitted to the school. The lottery process provides straightforward answers for school administrators, school councils and parents/guardians about the order in which students are accepted into a school that does not have enough space for all students in the program’s designated attendance area. It also provides a consistent approach across the system, rather than having variation in the process from school to school in the process.  

The priorities for acceptance are as follows:

Priority 1

  • Students residing within the walk zone who have a sibling that will be attending in the same program in the same school; concurrent
Priority 2
  • Students living outside the walk zone who will have a sibling in the same program in the same school at the same time
       OR
  • Students living within the walk zone who do not have a sibling in the school
Priority 3
  • All other students living in the program’s designated attendance area

A student who is  unsuccessful in the lottery process who registered for a/an:

  • alternative program, will be informed by the alternative program school how to register in the designated regular program school or where capped (AR 6090), in the designated overflow school.
  • regular program, will be designated to the overflow school.

RT @DFMSJensen: Grade 4 went on a hike to think about what animal we connect with. How better to think about this than being in nature! We came so close to the squirrel and a chickadee even landed on one of our classmate’s hand for a brief moment!🐿 #drfredamillerschool https://t.co/snLHY7D1na
