Lottery results are released March 30, 2018. You will receive an email, mailed letter or you can log into your family account and click on the “View the lottery results” button.
The enrollment deadline for matched families is May 1, 2018. After that, your spot is no longer guaranteed.
If you missed the application deadlines for the school year, please complete the My School DC post-lottery application. Post-lottery applicants are added to the bottom of the waitlist below lottery applicants. An exception to the waitlist is if the applicant is the sibling of a current student. To submit a post-lottery application for school year 2018-19, click here.
Any child applying after the lottery deadlines is added to the Cesar Chavez waitlist. You will be contacted by phone and by email when a space for your child becomes available. You may also call and check your child’s status. We check the waitlist and send out acceptances daily.
The enrollment timeline can be found on the admissions webpage.
If your child was matched with Cesar Chavez through the lottery, you must enroll your child – in person, at the correct campus by May 1, 2018.
