If you are pleased with your Main Round placement, you should not participate in Round 2. If you submit a Round 2 application and are assigned to a new school, you will lose your Main Round assignment, even if you complete the Main Round seat acceptance process.

Seat Availability

Round 2 Seat Availability is provided to help applicants understand which schools are likely to have seats available in Round 2. If your family is interested in submitting a Round 2 application, you are encouraged to use the chart linked below to understand if your preferred schools are expected to have availability in your child’s grade. Please note that you are not guaranteed a placement at a particular school expected to have open seats in your child’s grade.

You should always apply to your most preferred school choices on your Round 2 application, even if they filled all seats in the Main Round, but you are strongly encouraged to also include several choices with availability in your child’s grade. If you are certain you would like to transfer schools, or you do not yet have a school placement for the upcoming year, you should list 8 school choices, including several choices that did not fill in the Main Round.

How Does OneApp Consider Geography?

EnrollNOLA understands that, for some families, attending a school close to home is very important. That’s why nearly all elementary and middle schools that participate in OneApp give priority to half of all open seats to applicants who live in the school’s geographic zone. Students enrolling in most high schools will not receive geographic priority. This approach maximizes student choice and allows schools to specialize in particular programs and areas. Families should consider these factors when selecting schools and planning for next school year.

Geographic priority for most schools is determined by “geographic catchment zones,” a way of splitting up the city by zip code. The zones we use to determine placements can be seen in the map below. Applicants who reside in a school’s geographic catchment zone receive priority to 50% of the available seats at that school, unless stated otherwise. The reason that geographic priority only applies to 50% of available seats is to make sure that families who live further away can also have an opportunity to attend.

How Does OneApp Consider Siblings?

EnrollNOLA understands that families often want all of their children to attend the same school together. During the 2015-2016 OneApp Main Round, 97% of sibling-applicants were placed at the same school as their sibling(s), and 100% of kindergarten sibling-applicants were matched with their siblings. OneApp honors parents’ ability to choose either to send all of their students to school together, or to choose different schools based on each student’s individual interests and needs, in two important ways:

Sibling Priority

If a student applies to a school that their sibling already attends, the student will receive priority in the lottery. For sibling priority to take effect, the sibling must be scheduled to remain enrolled in the school for the coming school year. This means that the sibling of a graduating senior, for example, will not receive sibling priority to their sibling’s school.

Family Link

Family Link is how OneApp tries to keep siblings together when a parent / guardian submits an application for more than one child to attend the same school. During the 2015-2016 OneApp Main Round, 82% of family-linked students were matched to school together.

For example: let’s imagine a family that is looking for a new school for their rising first and second graders. The parent lists the same schools on each child’s application, in the same order. The family’s first-choice school only has a seat for the first-grader, but both students can be matched to their second choice together. In this scenario, OneApp would match both to their second-choice school.

Please note that Family Link will only apply to students applying to public schools. If you include nonpublic schools on your application, Family Link will not apply. Family Link does not give you priority to the schools you list on your application.

 


How Does the Process Work?

EnrollNOLA is committed to ensuring the student enrollment process is fair and transparent for all students, families, and schools. Keep these tips and facts in mind as you fill out your child’s Round 2 OneApp:

  • Do not submit an application if you would like your child to remain at his / her school assignment for the upcoming year. If you were assigned a new school for the upcoming year through the Main Round, this means your Main Round placement.
  • Some schools with entrance requirements use the Round 2 Early Window Deadline, May 12, 2017. These schools will have the early deadline listed on their online profile.
  • To apply online, you will need a working email address. If you need assistance setting up an email account, click here.

Early Childhood Students

Round 2 is not open to Early Childhood applicants. If you are interested in enrolling for an Early Childhood program for the upcoming school year, click here to learn more your family’s options.

In order to prove you are eligible to receive a free early childhood seat, you must submit all required documents for verification of eligibility. To learn more about required documentation, click here.

Louisiana Scholarship Program

NOTE: There is no Round 2 process for nonpublic schools participating in the Louisiana Scholarship Program.

Families who applied to a Scholarship school during the Main Round, and who are interested in applying to a different school for next year, may submit an application for a new public school placement during Round 2.

Only submit a Round 2 application if you are certain you would like to change your placement for the upcoming school year. If you submit a Round 2 application for a public school placement and are assigned to a new school, you will lose your Main Round assignment, and your Scholarship, even if you complete the Main Round seat acceptance process.

Main Round Results are available now at Family Resource Centers and in the online parent application portal. You must claim your child’s Main Round seat by May 12, 2017. Failure to do so may result in the loss of your seat assignment.
