Information About the Selection Process
Please note, the lottery selection process for Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition will begin after February 1st of each year. If your application is not selected and you wish to remain in the application pool, you must complete an online application each year in order to have the most current information available. Remember, that the lottery selection and admission process are ongoing since students withdraw and enroll throughout the year. Because of the class size limitations, seats are not filled until the current students are promoted or retained, which may be dictated not only by faculty assessment but also by state standardized test scores. The selection process is focused on retaining a student demographic profile in each research school that reflects racial, ethnic, and economic diversity of the state’s students. Students are selected until all currently available seats are filled within the necessary demographics. Selections will be made as openings arise and those selected will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org which will invite your child to attend the FAU school you applied for. If your application is not selected, but you are interested in remaining in the lottery, you must reapply each year so the most current information can be available for the selection process.
Thank you for your patience.
