SIBLING PREFERENCE

Charter schools may give siblings preference of current students over other new students if space allows. The policy for sibling preference must be made known annually as part of the open enrollment and lottery application process. Sibling is defined as any natural child, adopted child, stepchild or legal foster child actually living and residing in the same household of the parent/guardian who has completed the charter school lottery application. Cousins, nieces, nephews and unrelated children sharing the same address with the applicant are not considered siblings. Sibling Preference is based upon space availability and does not guaranteed enrollment for each sibling.

CMIT is planning not to provide any bus or transportation services to the students who enroll CMIT on or after October 1, 2012. Siblings of current students may receive such services if there is availability and upon CMIT administration’s approval.
