How are students admitted to lottery magnet schools?
Lottery-based schools admit students based on an electronic, random lottery-selection by geographic quadrant. Each school has a specific admission process.
When will the lottery take place?
Elementary school lotteries - Mid-March
Secondary school lotteries - Mid-March
How will I be notified of the results?
You will receive an email regarding selection for a program or placement on the wait list shortly after the lottery is complete. You will go to your dashboard to accept your seat or see the wait list number for your student.
What if my child is not selected in the initial lottery selection process?
For the lottery-based schools, if your child meets the qualification requirements, their name will be placed on a quadrant wait list. The placement of the name depends on the order in which it was randomly drawn.
How does the elementary sibling preference work for elementary magnets?
The selection process for our elementary magnets is designed for students from all areas of Tulsa to have equal access to these programs. The process also provides for a sibling preference to encourage family engagement with the school community. While the policy does provide preference for these siblings over non-siblings, it is not a guarantee* of admission to the school. (*Practically speaking, this means that siblings are not placed in the lottery with non-sibling students. Siblings of students accepted prior to the 2017-2018 school year will have a guaranteed seat.)
- For applicants whose families will be new to the school in 2018-2019 (and those who were new in the 2017-2018 schoolyear): younger siblings will continue to have preference over non-siblings in the future, but admission is not guaranteed and will be dependent on there being enough seats within the applicable quadrant at the time of the younger sibling's application. Siblings will be given preference over non-siblings in their quadrant and will be selected separately from and admitted prior to non-siblings in their quadrant. Also, siblings will have preference over non-siblings on any wait list.
- Out-of-district, younger sibling applicants: note that the out-of-district admission limitations of district regulation 2206-R2 apply to out-of-district applicants even if the applicant has an older sibling attending the school.
You can find more information about sibling preference in district regulation 2206-R2.
