Families are not required to attend the lottery as part of the enrollment process. The school will conduct the lottery electronically, if possible, and a neutral party shall certify that the process is fair and that selection is random. If the school is unable conduct an electronic lottery, the school will institute a lottery where a neutral party will draw names at random for each grade separately. All lotteries will be conducted at the school’s location.
