Waiting List Procedures If a student stops attending SICS or declines admission, the next student on the Waiting List for that grade will be offered admission; this will be repeated until the vacant seat is filled. No student will be admitted ahead of other eligible students on the Waiting List unless said student is either a sibling of an enrolled student or a resident of Springfield. Students on the Waiting List will be contacted by phone with any offer of admission to the school. It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to notify the school with any change of contact information. Any student who is offered a seat at SICS and declines admittance, will need to reapply. Starting in April 2014, all students who are already on the school’s Waiting List will be grandfathered in to remain on the list. Those students, who are on the list, by April 2014, will advance one grade level each year and will remain on the list until their name comes to the top of their grade list and they are offered admission to attend SABIS. Those students, on the list by April 2014, do not need to reapply yearly to the school. All other students applying to SABIS, after April 2014, must complete an Application for Admission. All students who sign up for enrollment will be part of a lottery, to determine their placement on the Waiting List. These students will take part in a lottery, by grade, and will then be added to the existing grade Waiting List. These students will be added under the students who applied before April 2014. These new students applying must reapply and take part in a lottery yearly if they are not offered acceptance into the school. Students who are on the Waiting List as non-siblings and become a sibling, due to the acceptance and attendance of their brother/sister, will be given sibling status. It is the parent’s responsibility to notify the school if this occurs. If a student currently on the Waiting List changes his/her grade, it is the parent’s responsibility to notify the school. Those students will have to reenroll during the next enrollment period and take part in a new lottery. SICS will keep accurate and secure electronic and paper records of the Waiting List. The Waiting List will contain the name, home address, telephone number, grade level, date of birth, and sibling status of each student who enters a lottery but does not gain admission. When a student stops attending the school for any reason, the school will attempt to fill that vacant seat up to February 15th of that school year. SICS must replace any student who leaves the school in grade K-5 with a student in the same grade level, if the replacement takes place on or before February 15th.. If a student in grade K-5 leaves the school after February 15th that vacancy will be filled the following school year with a new student in the subsequent (next) grade level. Any student who leaves the school in grade 6-12 will be replaced in a grade that has available seats (to be determined by the School’s Director). Parents/guardians who have a child on the Waiting List are encouraged to contact SICS once a year to update their child’s information and track their child’s movement on the Waiting List.
