Getting Started in the Open Enrollment Period

Start by completing the online registration form.

If the school is oversubscribed at the end of the Open Application Period, a random lottery will be conducted to fill all available spaces by grade level. To be eligible for the lottery, you must do the following:

  1. Complete the online registration form.
  2. Fill out the Student Situation Survey.
  3. Submit a valid proof of residency.

Please complete these enrollment tasks as soon as possible.

During the open application period you will start by submitting the online registration form where you will be given instructions to log into Connexus®, the online system where you will complete the enrollment process. You will then be asked to submit a valid proof of residency and complete the Student Situation Data View to provide information that could determine enrollment preference if a lottery is necessary.

If a lottery is conducted, students eligible for enrollment preference will be enrolled prior to conducting the lottery for remaining spaces. Students selected in the lottery will receive an offer of enrollment. Students not selected are placed on a wait list. If a lottery is not needed, everyone considered lottery eligible will receive an offer of enrollment. Once the offer of enrollment is accepted, you will then have 14 days from the date of acceptance to complete the enrollment process.

You will have 24-hour access to your personalized account in Connexus, where you will find updates on the progress of your student's enrollment.

Once you return your accepted offer of enrollment, you will complete the placement process.
