5:00 - 6:30 pm

Process of the student’s acceptance:

  1. All applicants will be assigned a random lottery number.
  2. All applicants will be notified by mail and email of the assigned lottery number and the date/time/link of the ETA vocational lottery.
  3. All students have been assigned a Tier based on a combination of their attendance and discipline records. All applicants assigned a lottery number are currently on track to pass their current English and Mathematics courses. Students must pass their grade 8 English and Mathematics courses to remain eligible for the vocational ETA program.
  4. Student lottery numbers are sorted based on the assigned Tier and placed into their respective container. During the lottery, the administrator will randomly pull a number and announce it. We will continue this process until we reach 100 spots or we have exhausted the Tier 1 eligible students. If there are remaining spots after the Tier 1 lottery, the administrator will continue with the Tier 2 eligible students and randomly select from this group until the remaining spots are filled. This will repeat into the Tier 3, if necessary.
  5. Once the 100 eligible spots have been assigned, the lottery will continue. However, this lottery will identify the students’ placement on the waiting list. 
  6. All students will be notified by email and mail of the lottery decision. 
  7. All accepted students and/or their guardians must confirm their acceptance by April 28, 2022. The email will contain a link to a Google Form. Alternatively, students/guardians can sign and return the acceptance letter, or they can contact the school directly with the contact information provided on the acceptance letter.
  8. On April 29, 2022, the administrator will begin contacting students on the wait list in the event that spots become available.
