About the Online Lottery Application

  • How do I get my Zangle/Q ParentConnection PIN and password?

  • My child will be starting kindergarten next year. On the application it asks for "Current School" and "Current Grade." What do I put here?

  • I have one child applying for the same program that a sibling is already attending. How will the system know that I have a student already enrolled in the program?

  • I have two children that are applying for the same program. Their names are not listed on the sibling information page.

  • Can I submit applications to more than one school at a time?

  • How will I be notified whether my child is accepted into the school?

  • What will happen to my wait-list position if I accept a seat at a different school?

  • I accepted a position at one school (School A), but then later received notification that my child was accepted to another school (School B). Can I accept at both schools until I make my decision?

  • I accepted a seat at a program that I no longer wish my child to attend, but I cannot change my acceptance in the system.

  • Can an application be submitted in a different language?

  • I don't have an email account. How can I create one?

  • I don't have access to a computer or the Internet. Where can I get assistance?

About the Online Lottery Process

  • Why isn't enrollment offered on a first-come, first-served basis?

  • Two of my children entered the lottery, but only one was selected to attend. Can I wait to see if my other child gets selected from the wait list next semester and then enroll them both?

  • How often are lotteries held?

  • My older child is already in an alternative school, and my younger child wants to attend the same program. Does my younger child have to go through the lottery process?

  • What is “sibling preference?”

  • My older child used to go to an alternative school, but is now in middle school. Can my younger child still get sibling preference?

  • What is “attendance area preference?”

  • My child has sibling preference (or attendance area preference) does that guarantee him/her a slot at the school?

  • What is the “grade level draw” and why is it done?

  • Are there any preemptions to the lottery process?

  • My child receives special education services. Do I need to let the school know this before the lottery?

  • My child wasn't selected in this year's lottery. Do I have to fill out a new form for the next lottery?

  • My child is already attending a school/program on a zone exemption or lottery acceptance. Do I need to fill out a new application every year?
