SELECTION PROCESS

Students are selected for enrollment at Southeast Tech through a computerized, random selection process (the “lottery”). Results of the lottery will be made available in the online application portal. 

Lottery outcomes:

  • Not qualified (Student did not qualify to go through the lottery process)

  • Selected (Student was selected and must now decide if he/she wishes to accept the seat)

  • Alternate pool (Student qualified and is now waiting for a vacancy as other students are going through the acceptance process and seats become available)

 

After selection, the applicant must accept the seat for which he/she has been selected. Any applicants not selected during this initial lottery are placed into an alternate pool. Should a student choose not to attend after being selected for a Magnet/CTA seat, the vacant seat will be assigned to a student in the alternate pool, through a computerized, random selection prior to the end of the second week of each school year.

 

For more information about the selection process and preferences given to applications, please visit magnet.ccsd.net.
