The Center Director will hold an annual informational meeting to introduce parents to our kindergarten program. The meeting will be scheduled no later than March 31 each year. A three-week priority registration is offered to children currently enrolled in the NIST CCC. Registration for children not currently enrolled at the NIST CCC follows the announced priority registration period. If the number of children that are registered (including both currently enrolled and waiting list) at the end of the initial three-week registration period exceeds the number of available vacancies, then a lottery will be used to rank order these requests; otherwise, vacancies for the new school year will be filled on a first applied, first served basis.
The lottery proceeds as follows. The names of all age-eligible children from Category "A" are placed in a hat and withdrawn one at a time. As each name is drawn, it is recorded on a list in the order withdrawn. The lottery process is repeated for age-eligible children from Category "B", with the names being added below those children from Category "A". The process is repeated for children from category "C", followed by children from category "D", and then finally by children from category "E". Vacancies for the new school year are offered based on the lottery's rank ordering. Once the new school year begins, however, any new vacancies that become available are filled based on the priority category and registration date criteria described above.
