Frequently Asked Questions
What is a lottery form?
A lottery form is used to enter your child’s information into the public, random lottery for a specific Green Dot school. Lottery forms are accepted from Monday, October 10, 2016 to Tuesday November 29, 2016. After November 29th at 4PM, the lottery is closed.
What grades do Green Dot schools collect lottery forms for?
Green Dot schools accept lottery forms for ALL grades. Green Dot middle schools serve grades 6-8 and Green Dot high schools serve grades 9-12.
When is the deadline for submitting a lottery form?
All lottery forms must be submitted either at the school or online by 4PM on Tuesday, November 29th. Any lottery forms submitted after 4PM on Tuesday, November 29th will not be included in the lottery.
What happens after I submit a lottery form?
All lottery forms submitted prior to the lottery form deadline, November 29th at 4PM, will be placed in a lottery for that school. If the number of children interested in a specific grade at a Green Dot school exceeds the number of seats available for that grade, names will be drawn through a random, automated lottery process, and families will be notified for their admission status soon afterward.
What happens if I want to enroll after the lottery form deadline?
After the lottery form deadline, November 29th at 4pm, interested families should reach out to the school directly to see if there is space available at the school. If there is space available, the school will admit students on a first-come, first-serve basis.
If the school does not have space available, interested families can complete a waitlist form. Students are added to the waitlist in the order in which the waitlist forms are received after the lottery form deadline.
How long will my child remain on the waiting list?
The waitlist expires on the last day of open enrollment for the upcoming school year and does not carry over year to year. For the 2016-2017 school year, the waitlist will expire on November 29th at 4PM. If you are currently on a Green Dot school’s waitlist and would like to remain on the waitlist for the 2017-2018 school year, please submit a lottery form by November 29th at 4pm.
