Families interested in a Choice Program that wish to apply after the lottery process is complete, can access an “After Lottery Application" online beginning March 9.  Late applications will be reviewed in the order they are received.  Students who meet the academic critiera may be placed on the waitlist or seated list if space becomes available. 

 Out of County applicants and those students NOT CURRENTLY ENROLLED (this includes out of county, home school, virtual school, and private school students) in the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System must upload ALL required documents to the online application upon submission.  

If space in the school or program becomes available, parents will receive notification.  Otherwise, the student is expected to enroll at their neighborhood school. 

The deadline for reviewing After Lottery Applications will be June 12, 2020.  ​

All applicants who are not currently enrolled in a SCCPSS school should apply online and MUST upload digital copies of the required documentation during the submission process. The required documentation must be uploaded with the online application and includes: 

  • ​Transcript/Report Card (previous three full semesters, equivalent to a full year and a half)
  • Proof of Address (Utility Bill (electric, gas, water), Government Agency Mail, or Lease Agreement/Mortgage Statement)

  • Required Test Scores (nationally normed standardized test results that measure mathematics and literacy) ​

Parents who believe their child was not allowed an equitable opportunity to be selected for a Choice Program during the audition or eligibility process as a result of a technical problem or inequity may request an appeal. 

An application for an appeal can be emailed to or, indicating the child’s program assignment, waitlist status, or program ineligibility.
