Welcome to the waiting list! At this point, you have already
turned in your application and have gone through the one time lottery process.
Here comes the difficult part for everyone - waiting.
The wait time varies by grade level, which prevents us from bringing in
siblings at the same time. However, when one student comes in, siblings are
then promoted to the sibling list by date of application.
Lists are arranged by year of high school graduation. For example, a second
grader in the 2016-2017 school year will be on the list for the Class of 2027.
Our reference sheet
can be used to determine your child's year of high school graduation.
To streamline our waiting list process, we have changed our terminology to one
list per class of students. Fundamentally, nothing will change in regards to
wait time for current and future waiting list prospects. Here is an example of
the change in terminology:
Up until now parents have been able to apply for future
grades i.e. 7th grade in four years. These lists were kept separately and then
merged toward the end of a school year with those students who did not receive
an offer of enrollment for the current year. This process adversely affects the
waiting list when the merge occurs. The new system of keeping one list per
graduation year (Class of...) will provide a more complete picture of your
If you are called prior to your desired grade level of preference, you may
decline but that student will be placed
at the bottom of his/her waiting list.Keep in mind, siblings will always affect ranking order, however, your
family reference code keeps the appropriate place in line. Enrollment is always
based on space available.
The waiting list page has four columns. The following explains each column:
Rank - this in your child's approximate place in line
at a given point in time. This changes positively or negatively due to a
variety of factors such as siblings, employee children, or people no
Lottery - this is the number of the lottery where you
received your family number.
Status - this refers to your priority i.e. S = Sibling,
E = Employee children, A = Apple Valley residents and O = Outlying
communities (all other cities)
Family Number - this is the permanent number you
received at your lottery.
You can search for your place in line, by entering the
appropriate Class of... field, Lottery number, Status code, and Family Number.
