Below is information on the lottery used to select students entering the ninth grade.
Completed applications are to be submitted to the middle school counselor in the district of residence by the set date each year.
The middle school counselor’s office is responsible for submitting the completed applications to Tech Valley High School by 5 p.m. on the date announced.
If the number of applications received is greater than the number of openings in the freshman class, a lottery will be conducted.
Only students whose completed applications were received on or before the deadline will be included in the lottery.
Boys and girls will be drawn from different pools from within each BOCES area to ensure gender equity.
The lottery will be held at Tech Valley High School and overseen by the Principal & Chief Academic Officer in conjunction with BOCES officials.
Students not selected will be placed on a waiting list.
The names of students selected in the lottery will be sent to each school district followed by a letter to the student’s parent/guardian. All applicants will be notified of their status.
Late applications will be held pending possible openings for current class enrollment.
