Information about Waitlist Process From CPS:
The waitlist process opened on April 18th. Schools will contact families by phone and, possibly, by email as well, to offer available seats. Families will be contacted in the order of the waitlist, beginning with the student who is number 1 on the list and continuing in chronological order. At 8 am on the next business day after the call is made, the offer will appear on the student's online account. From that point, the family will have 48 business hours to either accept or decline the offer.
For those of you on a waitlist, please make sure to log into your account, check your emails and voicemail to see if you are contacted for a seat. You only have 48 hours to accept a waitlist offer or it goes to the next person on the list!
Please click the link below for the Principal Discretion Packet and Process. In order to apply for Principal Discretion to a specific school you must have applied for it in round 1. The deadline is April 20, 2018 at 6pm. Packets must be delivered and cannot by emailed, faxed or sent through CPS mail run.
From Go CPS,
1. There will likely only be a small number of schools with available seats remaining for Round 1 waitlist offers and Round 2 applications, so it is recommended that families accept a Round 1 offer in case they do not receive a waitlist offer or they are not interested in the programs available in Round 2.
2. Families do not need to decline a Round 1 offer to remain on any waitlists or submit an application in Round 2, but if they accepted a Round 1 offer, they should only submit a Round 2 application for programs that they prefer to the offer they accepted.
3. Receiving a Round 2 offer will automatically forfeit any Round 1 offer students accepted. However, if students receive a waitlist offer, they will then choose between that offer and the offer they already accepted.
