Lottery/Wait List Information and Lottery Registration Information
All students accepted for enrollment at Prairie Crossing Charter School must go through the lottery registration process. The lottery is a nonexclusive, nondiscriminatory process where all students who live in Districts 50 and 79 are welcome to apply. Siblings of current students are given priority where space allows. Legal residency must be established as of the day of the lottery for an applicant to be included in the in-district lottery process. Out-of-district students will only be admitted after all in-district student applications have been placed during the lottery process.
To learn more about Prairie Crossing Charter School and the lottery, PCCS invites all interested families to attend an Open House held in January and February each year. In 2014, our Open Houses will be held on January 23rd and February 18th. We will meet in the Comstock Building at 7:00 pm for a presentation and school tour. Registration forms for our current school year are available on the website. Please see below link for Wait List Registration forms.
Lottery Registration forms that were received from January 1st - February 28th each year are placed in the lottery. Forms submitted beginning March 1st will be added to the end of the wait list. If you are interested in registering your child(ren) for the Wait List, please fill out a Wait list Registration Form for the 2013-2014 school year (also available in Spanish).
The School Lottery is held once a year; in 2014, it will be held on March 3rd. Registration forms are also accepted after the Lottery drawing, please click here for the After Lottery Registration Form. Students will be placed on the wait list based on the following priority: siblings of returning/current students, in-district applicants and then out-of-district applicants. The student wait list is maintained and updated as changes are made for the current school year and the next school year after the March drawing. Please be sure to check the correct list to determine your students placement on the wait list.
Please familiarize yourself with Policies associated with the lottery process.
