How the KCPS Lottery Works

All applications received between November 6, 2022 – February 17, 2023 for Signature School or Neighborhood Pre-K Sites will be included in the KCPS Lottery if applicants meet the requirements.

This does not apply to students who are already enrolled in a KCPS Signature School as those students will automatically be placed in the next grade level unless they have been demitted.

Lottery Placement Factors

Below are criteria that factor into lottery placements and the points are given to each:

  • Current KCPS student (10 points)
  • Sibling currently enrolled at school of choice (2 points)
  • Sibling currently enrolled at other school in KCPS (1 point)
  • Current KCPS Staff member that resides in the district (3 points)
  • Application Submitted by February 17th (10 points)

 Notification Dates

  • February 27, 2023 – Lottery results (seat offer or wait list notification) posted in Infinite Campus Parent Portal.
  • March 3, 2023 – Deadline to accept a seat.
