Enrollment Process

Application

The enrollment period is December 16, 2019, through June 15, 2020. Lottery dates are 2/19/20, 4/2/20, and 6/3/20 Kindergarten enrollees must be age five on or before October 1st of the upcoming school year.

School Placement Announcements

Students gain admission to ECO via a randomized public lottery. Siblings who reside with enrolled and attending students are given preference and selected first, then the names of Camden resident children without siblings at ECO are selected randomly and posted, in order, until all current openings for each grade are filled. All remaining names are then randomly selected to create a wait list for each grade. Out-of-district applicants are admitted via the same process only after all siblings and residents are placed.

Notification

Lottery results are announced publicly during the lottery sessions. Attending the lottery is not required for admission. Also, we send letters to families indicating student applicant status, either “enrolled” or “waitlist”. Families are required to secure the student applicant’s seat by completing the registration process. Registration requires families to provide us with two verifiable proofs of address, a student’s birth certificate, vaccination records, and results of a physical examination completed by a medical doctor. Should families not complete the registration process within the provided timeline, an enrolled student will be moved to the waitlist.
