In the Open Enrollment process for Rosa International Middle School, in the case where one child already attends Rosa, is there any pre-decision for his/her younger sibling?

Open Enrollment for Rosa International Middle School, which runs from February 13 through February 24, 2017, is a selection process in which applicants' names are drawn at random. Under the Board of Education Open Enrollment Policy 5117.1, available by clicking here, applicants with older siblings attending Rosa Middle School do not receive special consideration. Applicants not initially offered admission shall be assigned a place on a waiting list, based on their enrollment process number. Parents or guardians of multiple birth siblings (e.g. twins, triplets) may request that the multiples be placed on a single enrollment process ballot. In addition, parents or guardians of siblings in the same grade residing in the same household may request that the siblings be placed on a single enrollment process ballot. This single ballot would allow the siblings to be selected for admission to Rosa or placed on the wait list collectively. If you have further questions, please contact the CHPS Registration Department at (856)429-5600, extension 4430, 4432 or 4436.
