FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Fort Wayne Community Schools held their annual school placement lottery Friday morning at the Family and Community Engagement Center downtown.
Parents were able to submit applications for students if they want to attend a school other than the one they're assigned to based on their home address. Parents will receive a letter in the mail by early February if they weren't able to attend.
Parents who missed the cut off date for applications can still submit one. Applications will be looked at in the order they are received. You can pick those up at any FWCS location, or at the Family and Community Engagement Center.
"The prize is that they're awarded an educational opportunity at one of our excellent schools," says Kyra Nolan Thompson, Student Placement Manager for FWCS.
"All of our schools are awesome, however we have schools that have a concentration in different magnet areas and things of that nature that are more prestigious."
Any parents seeking information about their child's placement must do so online or in person. Information will not be given over the phone.
