2. Lottery – Because we are not selective, if there are more applicants than spaces available, students will be entered into a lottery and chosen at random. Entry into our lottery is contingent upon the application being complete and submitted by February 27, 2017 by 4:00 PM. Paul Robeson’s lottery will be held on February 28, 2017 at 4:00 PM. Students not selected in the lottery will be placed on our waitlist.

3. Enrollment – Acceptance/Waitlist letters will be mailed after the lottery on February 28. If a student is admitted, parents must submit the completed enrollment packet by the date listed on the letter and prior to the first day of school or the student’s seat will be forfeited. An acceptance letter does not guarantee enrollment.
