Families that submitted Open Enrollment applications between Jan. 10 and Feb. 1, 2019 will be notified of the results of the first lottery. Lottery results will be mailed home to applicants and can also be found online, using the confirmation number (or student ID/temporary student ID number) you received after submitting your online application.
When you receive your results, you have three options:
Register at the school where you received placement.*
Request to remain in the lottery during the second round.
Do nothing - you are now opting out of Open Enrollment and can go ahead and register at your school of residence beginning in March.
* Registration for students selected in the first lottery takes place at the school site between March 4 and March 15. (See https://2019.openenrollment.info/ for details.)
If you request to remain in the lottery for the second round, you will receive either the same placement you received in the first lottery OR placement in a school that you ranked higher when you listed your preferences on the initial application. You do not need to register at the school where you were placed to hold your seat. (Indeed, registering at that school in March means that you have chosen NOT to participate in the second round of the lottery.)
