When all available seat offers have been made, students that applied during the open enrollment period and participated in the lottery but did not receive a seat offer will be placed on a waiting list according to their random assigned lottery number.
GCA will continue to accept applications after the open application period, but in grades where all available seats are filled, these students will be placed on the waiting list behind the students that were given a wait list number during the lottery. The order will be determined by the time/date stamp recorded at the time the application is submitted. The primary caretakers of selected wait listed students will receive an email notification to the email address provided at the time of application submission when/if a seat becomes available. The primary caretaker and must complete he enrollment process by supplying compliance documents within 10 calendar days including weekends and holidays. Students who are not compliant by the 10th day will forfeit their seat to the next eligible student on the waiting list.
If a mistake has been made and a student who has not been granted admission was denied or waitlisted and cannot be enrolled without potentially violating the enrollment policy cap that staff can make a request to the Board Chair with an explanation of how the mistake happened and that allowing an additional student is necessary in spite of the cap. The Board Chair may, in his/her discretion grant admission to the student or students even if they exceed the enrollment cap for that grade level.
