Change in Assignment Choice (Special Permission)
Student lottery replaces first-come, first-served process for change in assignment choice. Siblings will have priority. A computer-generated lottery of students’ names will replace the first-come, first-served process that required parents to stand in line for Change in Assignment Choice. The change, effective for 2014-15 student choice assignments, will include a Change in Assignment Choice Lottery Window from Monday, December 9 through Friday, December 20 when parents can submit a choice form for up to three schools at their number one choice school. Since order of receipt of form does not impact assignment, parents will not be allowed to line up at schools. A lottery will be conducted and results will be posted no later than Tuesday, February 18 on the GCS website providing the order of lottery selections by grade for each school. Names will not be listed. Parents will access results by using their choice form number. Space by grade level will later determine the choice assignments.
