You MUST first submit an application for your child through the Regional School Choice Office (RSCO) Lottery. The lottery application period runs from December 5, 2022 through February 28, 2023.
STEP 3: SAVE YOUR RSCO APPLICATION ID#
You will receive a RSCO Application ID upon completion of a RSCO Lottery Application. This ID is unique to each applicant. If you are applying for more than one child, each child will receive their own unique Application ID#. You will need this ID to complete the priority form.
STEP 4: COMPLETE THIS PRIORITY FORM
You MUST accurately complete all of the fields below. Consideration is made after verification of status has been completed. If you do not qualify for priority status you will still have an opportunity to be awarded a seat through the general lottery pool.
STEP 5: RESULTS
The lottery is conducted around May of each year for entrance in the fall. Parents/caregivers are notified if their child is offered a seat into the school and you must respond in order to secure your child’s seat.
STEP 6: REGISTRATION
If your child receives an offer to attend RMS, the students parent/caregiver must complete and return the school registration packet along with all additional required documents. Deadlines for materials need to be met in order to retain your seat. Since there is an extensive waitlist for RMS, it is critical that all deadlines for the registration process are met or your child may forfeit their seat.
This is only for priority status and does not guarantee placement. All placements are contingent upon the number of slots available in any given school year.
