The lottery for the 2015-2016 School Year will be held on Monday, March 2nd at 1:00 PM in the Sandy Ridge Campus Multipurpose Room. This lottery will include all applications that have been received from November 1, 2014 thru Noon on February 28, 2015. All grades will be included in the lottery.
The lottery is open to the public, but you do not need to attend, as attending will not increase your chances of obtaining a space for your child. You will be notified within a week of the lottery if we have an available space for your child or if they have been placed on a waiting list.

ADMISSION POLICY AND LOTTERY
Coral Academy of Science Las Vegas School shall not base admission on intellectual ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, athletic ability, or discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, race, religion or disability.
School receives all kindergarten enrollment applications for the following school year during the announcedenrollment window which will be determined by the school administration. The enrollment window applies only to kindergarten; for all other grades, if the grade is not yet full, a pupil must be enrolled and receive instruction at the time the pupil seeks enrollment; if the grade is full, the pupil’s name is placed on an enrollment waiting list and chosen from the waiting list by lottery as soon as a space becomes available in the grade. Coral Academy will conduct a public lottery on a pre- announced lottery date if school has more applications than open spaces available in each grade level.
The lottery will consist of the names of all students whose parents have filled and returned the application form to the school registrar either as paper records or electronically. Once the enrollment has reached capacity, students will be put onto a waiting list. An exception to this is kindergarten enrollment: if more pupils apply than the building can accommodate, all names are subject to the lottery. Once students are on a waiting list they will receive a letter in the mail notifying them of their status and the procedures for holding the lottery. They will be asked to confirm whether or not their child(ren) should be left on the enrollment “Wait List”.
For each grade, those names will be drawn from a “jar” or sorted by a software application to put the waiting list in a random order. The students then will be accepted in that order as long as there are available spots. The rest of the students will remain in the waiting list at their randomly determined position. Any new application will be added to this waiting list without a wait list number until all the names in the original waitlist are used. Another lottery will be conducted to determine the waitlist order of the applicants that have applied later.
