Thank you for your interest in the University of Houston Charter School (UHCS)! The application and commitment procedure for our kindergarten through fifth grade school has begun. According to the Texas Education Agency, the following lottery registration procedure will be implemented.
Personally delivered, faxed, emailed and US mailed applications will be accepted only from Monday, April 1st, at 7:30 am until Friday, April 12th, at 4:30 pm. UHCS is not responsible for lost application sent via mail. A receipt will be issued for all personally delivered applications. Mailed applications are not issued a receipt. Parents must take responsibility to assure UHCS receipt of the applications during this time frame. Applications received and/or delivered after the deadline, April 12th, 2013, 4:30pm will be excluded from the initial lottery.
Each lottery application will be assigned a number for the child’s eligible grade level. The lottery drawing will take place Monday, April 22nd, at 4:30 pm in Navigators classroom. At the lottery, numbers for each grade level will be drawn. For open positions, applications will then be accepted in the order established by the lottery. Once all open positions are filled a wait list will be established by listing applications in sequential order based on the lottery. The applicants receiving the lowest numbers will be enrolled whenever slots become available. Please note that if you are placed on the wait list, there is no guarantee of enrollment.
Applicants will NOT be carried over into future school years.
On or before September 1st, children must be five years of age to be enrolled in kindergarten.
