Beginning in March, all of Rhode Island’s charter public schools will hold blind lotteries to determine their student body for the following school year. By law, each charter public school is required to conduct a blind lottery when the number of applicants exceeds the number of available spaces. All charter public school lotteries will be conducted under the supervision of the Rhode Island Department of Education.
At The Greene School, this process takes only a few minutes and is done entirely by a computer program that will randomly sort all the applications for each grade. Once we have determined which students will be enrolled, the rest of the applicants will be placed on a waiting list. Students that were admitted to the school will then be notified by a phone call. If they decide not to attend, then an opening will exist and we will notify the first person on the wait list and continue with names on our wait list until we are completely enrolled.
On March 3rd, 2014, The Greene School conducted the lottery for school year 2014-2015. It is still possible to apply to the school for 2014-2015, but any new applicants will be placed at the end of the waiting list.
Please check back in August, 2014 for open house dates for school year 2015-2016- these dates will be posted on our website under the "attend an open house" link. The application deadline for the lottery for school year 2015-2016 will also be posted in August, 2014. Thank you. We look forward to meeting our new students and families.
