Lottery Process

If we receive registrations beyond our capacity, a lottery will be held to determine which students can attend 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 designated area. It also provides a consistent approach across the system, rather than having variation 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 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 designated attendance area

(Please note, there are a limited number of schools or communities with slight revisions to the above priorities: Rocky Ridge/Royal Oak, Glamorgan and Willow Park.) 

Students who are not successful in the lottery will be designated to a different school.

RT @DFMSPeterson: Today we used our knowledge of measurement to compare arm span to height using nonstandard tools. One friend said, “We knew our measurements weren’t accurate because my partner was 71 blocks and I was 67 blocks but I know I am taller than him.” https://t.co/jgEhUjWgbY

RT @DFMSLivingstone: The morning class used their loose parts to sequence their story ideas into pictures today. Camping bunnies, hidden treasure and a trip to space in a bubble were only a few of the many stories that have come to life this week in kindergarten! #drfredamillerschool #wearecbe https://t.co/BkFlogF7na
