ROCS open enrollment will run from October 1st - January 31st annually.
On January 31st, ROCS Board of Directors will determine the number of spaces available for each grade level. If the number of registrations exceeds the number of spaces available, a lottery will be held.
A computerized lottery will be held for each grade when the number of registrants exceeds number of openings.
ROCS will notify families of admitted registrants using contact information on the registration form.
Notwithstanding any recent law to the contrary, ROCS may refuse admission to any student who has been expelled or suspended from the public school under G.S. 115C390.5 through G.S. 115C390.11 until the period of suspension or expulsion has expired.
Per State rules, ROCS will give admission preference to children of current employees, Board members and to current students' siblings. If the number of applicants in these groups exceeds the available seats, a separate preference group lottery will be held.
Once a student is enrolled, he/she does not have to re-enroll each year; however students must submit an "Intent to Return" form so administrators can plan accordingly.
Any applicant on the waitlist from the previous year, must re-submit an application.
