Our Application Process

All applications received during the Open Enrollment Period (November 7, 2016-January 11, 2017) are placed in the Lottery without regard to preference status. Note, only completed applications received during the Open Enrollment Period are placed in the Lottery. All applications received after Open Enrollment will be accepted on a "First-Come, First-Serve" basis and will be added to the end of the Wait List in the order in which they were received by the school.

The Lottery will be conducted at MOT Charter School on February 1, 2017. Once all lottery numbers are drawn (assigned) & recorded, the school will apply appropriate preferences, according to our state charter, to establish the admission order (referred to as an enrollment number).

Enrollment and Wait List: The number assigned to each applicant as a result of the Lottery (lottery number) and the application of preferences (enrollment number) determines the order in which the applicant is offered enrollment at MOT Charter School. Once all openings have been filled by grade, the remaining applicants are placed on the Wait List by grade in enrollment number order.

Notification: Email notifications will be sent to all student applicants indicating their status. Those student families who are offered admission but fail to respond within the acceptance time will be deemed to have declined the offer of admission and forfeit their right to enrollment.

K-8 Academy Preference

Preference categories are outlined and available by reading the MOT Charter School K-12 Admissions Policy. All Applicants placed in the lottery will receive their entitled preference applied after the lottery is drawn, prior to enrollment offers being issued.  Note, if the information on the application is not accurate, the preference may be revoked. In addition, if an applicant is offered admission to MOT Charter ahead of other students due to a preference and the applicant’s eligibility for that preference changes, MOT Charter will revoke the admission offer.

All preferences for grades K-8 shall be considered in the following hierarchy:

•  Applicant child of a Founding Board Member
•  Applicant child of MOT Charter School full time teaching faculty (those employed by the School on a permanent basis for at least 30.0 hours per week during the school year).
•  Applicant sibling of a currently enrolled K-8 student. The sibling of any applicant enrolling under sibling preference must be enrolled in order for sibling preference to be effect. An alumnus of the school with a sibling applying for the following year does not qualify as a sibling for entrance preference.
•  Applicant living within the Appoquinimink School District. Applicant must live in the Appoquinimink School District at the time the preference is applied and the offer of enrollment is made to receive this preference.
•  Applicant sibling of a currently enrolled high school student.
