The Lottery Process

If the number of applicants exceeds the number of open slots available at a given school, a lottery will be held. The lottery determines the order in which available slots will be filled. Applications that are received after April 30, 2022, will not be considered. The information of each eligible applicant shall be printed on a lottery log for each requested school. Open Enrollment information cards will be placed into a bin for each school by priority level, shuffled and then cards will be drawn for the available number of slots at each school. One lottery drawing will be held for all available schools at the Tipton County Board of Education on May 13, 2022.


Parent’s Notice of Acceptance

The parent/guardian signature upon the application confirms their agreement to all terms and conditions in TCBOE policy 6.206.
