Information and Links

If the enrollment at any MTCS program exceeds the capacity of the program, class, grade level or physical space, students will be accepted by lot.

MTCS will give enrollment preference to a sibling of an enrolled student and to a foster child of that pupil’s parents. The children of school staff’s children will be given preference before accepting other students by lottery.

When space opens up in any program, a lottery will be conducted at the MTCS main office before the beginning of each enrollment period. Student’s names will be placed in a container and names will be drawn by the board appointed lottery official. Parents/guardians will be notified by telephone and mail if their child’s name has been drawn.

As a result of the U.S. Supreme Court Ruling, school personnel may not deny admission to a student during initial enrollment or any other time on basis of undocumented status; or require parents or students to disclose their immigration status or social security numbers, which may expose undocumented status (458 U.S. 1131{1982}).
