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: We had a great time with week designing, building, and sharing our magnetic toys. Today we calculated how much our toy cost by adding up each of our materials. After figuring out the cost, we shared our toys with each other. We were pretty excited to show off our work! https://t.co/wxQpddWNje

RT @DFMSPeterson: We have been working on graphing in math. This week students chose the their own question, collected the data and then graphed the results. Next, we worked on a tricky math problem trying to use clues to figure out the data and then graph it. https://t.co/vC3r5TXFv8
