The lottery season runs from October to December. Applications are accepted starting mid-October through the beginning of December. During this time families should research the Learning Option schools and/or attend available open houses. The lottery will be run, and families will be notified electronically within seven business days. If selected in the lottery you must accept by the deadline. If you do not accept by the deadline, your spot will be forfeited. If you are not selected through the lottery, some schools may have a second consideration process. Please contact the Learning Option school for more information. If a second consideration process is not available, students will be placed in the wait-pool. The length of time you will remain in the wait-pool will be determined on a variety of factors, such as number of applicants, class size and space availability. Late applications are only accepted on a space availability basis.
