Upon successful completion of the application the student will be assigned a lottery number for the lottery on January 15, 2019.
If there are more students than there are available spaces in a grade group, there will be a lottery for that grade. An independent, certified professional will conduct the lottery and will ensure that all persons who complete an application form are fairly and equitably represented in the lottery. Separate lotteries will be conducted for resident (Alloway, Elk, Franklin, Pittsgrove, South Harrison, Upper Deerfield, Upper Pittsgrove, Woodstown) and non-resident (elsewhere in NJ) students. Resident students will be chosen first and receive preference for enrollment. Separate priority lists will be established and maintained for each grade level. If a child is admitted to the school, any siblings on the waitlist immediately move up on the waitlist for their grade to the highest position that follows any siblings previously placed there. Waitlists remain valid for one year.
Enrollment Packet for students who receive a space in the lottery must be completed by February 28, 2019, Transfer Card due on June 27, 2019.

The final step in the enrollment process is submitting the Transfer Card, which must be completed after the end of the school year, and submitted by June 27, 2019.
