  •  2022-23 Program Details


    The process for CEEL registration for the 2022-23 school year will be managed via lottery. Families should follow the steps below to apply for the CEEL program:

    1. The initial application window will be open from 10 a.m. Monday, May 16 to 10 a.m. Tuesday, May 31
      1. Apply for the lottery online.
      2. No payment is required to apply.
      3. You will receive a confirmation email after successful submission of the application. If you do not receive this email, you have not successfully applied and will not be entered into the lottery. Please check your spam folder; during heavy volume registration times, the email may be delayed. You can also log into your account anytime to see if your application was successful.
    2. Names will be chosen via lottery immediately following the initial application window. 
    3. Families will be notified by Wednesday, June 1 at 4:00 p.m. if they are being offered a space. 
      1. An email with the offer and additional details will be sent to the email address associated with the application. This is the only form of communication families will receive regarding an offer. 
      2. If offered a space in the program, you will then be given a specific period of time to complete additional tasks, such as registering and paying the required deposit. 
      3. Deadlines must be met in order to secure the spot for your child. Failure to do so will result in your child being placed back in the lottery. 
    4. Once seats are filled, waitlisted families will be notified of their waitlist status. 

    Additional details regarding enrollment

    • CEEL enrollment is a fluid process. We typically have a waitlist for most of our locations.
    • Applications are accepted for the current school year only. 
    • The lottery will be conducted at the Panorama Village Administrative Center with the program coordinator, secretary, CEEL supervisor representatives, and another district representative. 
    • If siblings apply and only one name is drawn in the lottery, both siblings will be offered space in the program.
    • Students who are not offered a space after the initial lottery will be placed on the waitlist, along with applications received after the initial lottery. When a space becomes available, a lottery will be held and families will be notified in the fashion detailed above.
    • When the initial application window closes, if the number of applicants is fewer than the projected openings, all applicants will be offered admission. 
    • If a student leaves the program for any reason, a new application is required and the application will become part of the waitlist lottery when a space becomes available.
