New Sibling Preference Applications Process

Prince George’s County Public Schools give lottery preference to new students who already have a sibling in the school. Siblings must live in the same household, have the same responsible parent/guardian, and both siblings must be enrolled at the charter school for the 2017-18 school year. Families must submit a valid lottery application by the deadline to be eligible for sibling preference.

New this year all applications for sibling preference will be accepted during the public charter school open enrollment season from November 1, 2016 through January 27, 2017. This new process allows PGCPS to streamline data entry and accurately capture family information that links families and especially siblings.

To submit a sibling preference application, please logon at http://lottery.pgcps.org/ to submit your application for sibling preference. Sibling preference is based on seat availability and never a guarantee. If there is more sibling preference request than seats available, a sibling lottery will be held to determine placement.
