Due to technical difficulties caused by today’s ESC evacuation, we are unable to complete the K-12 Student Transfer Lottery today. The lottery platform company has projected that the process will be completed by Monday at 8 PM. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please check for updates.

Applications received after 11:59 p.m. on February 14, 2020 will not be included in the lottery and will be placed on the waiting list in the order in which they are received. 

The lottery will be held on Friday, February 21, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. Results will be published on the same day by 8:00 p.m.
