Due to the school closures from the recent ice storms and resulting application deadline extension, the Lafayette Parish School System has decided to reschedule the lottery dates for its Schools of Choice program.
The new dates will allow Schools of Choice staff to ensure that all applications were properly completed. The new lottery dates will be as follows:
Elementary School Programs - Monday, March 10, 2014 at 5:30 pm
Middle and High School Programs - Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 5:30 p.m.
All lotteries are open to the public and will be held in the Board Room of the Lafayette Parish School System, located at113 Chaplin Drive. At the lottery an acceptance list for all programs will be posted. Letters will be also be mailed to all applicants informing parents and students if they have been accepted in a program or which number on the waiting list they received. The Schools of Choice application will reopen on March 15 for any program that does not have an extensive waiting list. Applications submitted on or after that date will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
