Medical and Family Hardship Appeals

Medical and Family Hardship Appeals

Families who cannot attend their assigned school due to unique hardships such as medical or family situations may file for an Appeal. Appeals are considered only for cases where the student’s needs cannot be met at the assigned school. An independent appeals committee is convened and reviews cases. Decisions made by the appeals committee are final, and cannot be further appealed.

Approved appeals are granted for one school only, and cannot be used for placement into multiple schools. Approved cases are given the highest tiebreakers in the wait pool run. If space is available, the student will be placed and the family will be notified.

Remember that, if you submit an appeal, you must also submit a Wait Pool Application listing the school you appeal to. All documents must be submitted by June 18, otherwise your appeal will not be considered complete. 

You can fill out an Online Appeal Form, or download a paper copy from Applications and Forms. We will accept Round 2 Appeals from June 7 - June 18.
