OPEN ENROLLMENT: JAN. 5 – FEB. 3, 2017
The deadline for receipt of all completed Student Application and Parent Agreements for the 2017-2018 school year by Liberty Tech Charter School is 2:30 pm on Friday, February 3, 2017. All completed applications must be received no later than February 3, 2017 at 2:30 pm to be included in the February 17 student lottery. Applications will be accepted at the school daily, 12:00 – 3:00 pm, during the January 5 through February 3 time period. Applications should be submitted to our data administrator, Gina Tonnis.
Applications must be accompanied by (a) the child’s original or state-certified birth certificate, (b) a copy of the child’s social security card or social security number waiver, (c) a copy of parents photo ID, and (d) two documents proving residency within the state of Georgia. The first proof of residency may be established with a copy of a current, unexpired lease, deed, mortgage, or current monthly mortgage statement. The second document proving residency should be a current electric, water, or gas bill (within 30 days of the date of application). If a parent(s) does not own or lease within the state of Georgia, but parent(s) and student live with a relative or other person who is a property owner or lessee in the state of Georgia, an Affidavit of Residency is required in addition to the above documentation.
In the filling of available seats, Liberty Tech Charter School conducts two drawings during the lottery. The first drawing is for the placement of students who fall into one of two categories: (1) children of staff and board members of Liberty Tech Charter School and (2) siblings of current Liberty Tech Charter School students. The second drawing is for the placement of all other students with a completed application. If the number of applicants exceeds the capacity of a program, class, grade level or building, all students in the second drawing who applied during the open enrollment period will have an equal chance at admission through a random selection process. Offers of admission will proceed with the first randomly selected student from each grade, to the next student, and so on until all available slots are offered. View Liberty Tech Charter School’s Lottery Policy.
Following notification of eligibility, parents then have 15 days to notify the school of intent to enroll by submitting the completed, signed Intent to Enroll Form to the school. Should a student or family decline admission or fail to respond within 15 days, that student will be removed from the roster and the slot will be offered to the first student of that grade level on the wait list until all slots have been filled. Once students enroll and attend, they retain placement in the school, unless they withdraw.
