Waitlist Information

If your student has a "WL" in front of his/her Lottery Placement Number, it means he/she has been waitlisted. If a seat in a grade becomes available, DLA will contact the next student on the waitlist for that grade and offer him/her a seat.  If the seat is declined, the next student on the Waitlist is contacted.

Please note that the lottery/waitlist order may change based on sibling preference. For example, if a student is enrolled in one grade, then his or her siblings will automatically gain "sibling preference" and they'll move up based on their relative's lottery number.

Enrollment preference is based on the following Massachusetts statutes: (603 CMR 1.00: M.G.L. c. 71, § 89, the state Charter Schools Education Laws and Regulations). Under the state Education Laws and Regulations, enrollment preference is offered only to siblings of currently enrolled students and to students who are residents.

Only applications received by the February 28, 2017 5:00 p.m. deadline were included in this year's Lottery. Applications received after the deadline will be added to the waitlist and will be considered after the 2017-2018 Lottery Waitlist has been exhausted.

The Lottery Results contain the following information: 

  • Lottery ID Number
  • Entering Grade for 2017-18 
  • Lottery Placement Number 
  • Current Preference for Admission (Sibling, Resident, Non-Resident)

If you do not remember your student's Lottery ID Number, please contact the school at 617-474-7950.

DLA will contact families whose student(s) have been waitlisted when seats become available in a particular grade. Families who are offered a seat have 14 days to accept or decline the seat.  After that time (or if the seat is declined) we will contact the next family on the Waitlist for that grade level. Students must attend school within the first 10 days to secure a seat.

Other important notes:

If you discover an error (e.g. a student is listed in the wrong grade for next year) or are unable to locate your student's name, please call Claudette Jones at 617-474-7950 Ext. 27.
