Because Audubon Charter School has more applicants than seats, school officials will hold a public lottery for the 2014-15 school year. The Lens will live-blog the two events here:

  • Wednesday, March 12: Pre-kindergarten and kindergarten
  • Thursday, March 13: Grades 1-8

Each event starts at 9 a.m.*

Parents of applicants should have received their child’s number in the mail. Officials will call out those numbers to determine the order for offering admission. Because the school has not said how many slots are available, it’s unclear how many of those students will be accepted.*

Both events are open to the public. They’ll be held in Audubon’s Upper School Cafeteria, 1111 Milan St.

The blog will be be archived here after the event ends.

Thursday: Grades 1-8

Wednesday: Pre-kindergarten and kindergarten

*Correction: Due to incorrect information on the school’s website, we originally reported that the lottery would start at 8:30 a.m. The story also incorrectly stated that officials would call out the numbers of children who have been accepted; in fact they called out numbers to determine the order in which they would offer admission. The school has not said how many seats are available, so it’s unclear how many of the students will get in. (March 12, 2014)
