During the open enrollment process preference will be given to:

  • Dependent children of active duty military personnel whose move resulted from military orders;
  • Children who have been relocated due to a foster care placement in a different school zone;
  • Children who move due to a court-ordered change in custody due to separation or divorce, or the serious illness or death of a custodial parent; 
  • Students residing in the district; and 
  • Preference will be given to siblings of current students, children of Founding Board members, and children of staff members.

If the number of applications exceeds the capacity of the program, class, or grade level, all applicants will have an equal opportunity of being admitted through the following random selection process:

  1. Completed application will be recorded and assigned a number.
  2. The number of applicants will be compared to openings for a particular grade level.
  3. If the number of applications exceeds the number of openings, a random drawing will occur. If the number of applications is equal to or fewer than the number of openings, all eligible students will be enrolled.
  4. In the random draw, all application numbers will be placed into a container.
  5. A non-employee, non-board personnel of JMPHS will draw one number from the container at a time for the grade level in which an opening exists. This number will be checked to allow siblings an automatic position if room is available at that grade level.
  6. When all vacant slots are filled at each grade level, the lottery process will continue with the remaining application numbers. These applicants will be placed on a waiting list in the order they are drawn and will be offered positions if openings occur during the summer or school year.
  7. Complete applications received after the deadline will be accepted but not considered until all applicants from the initial lottery have either filled or turned down openings. Subsequently, all late applicants will be placed into a lottery system to fill any openings.
