Magnet lottery update

Magnet Lottery Update:

We are accepting scans or copies of the required documents for rising K-5 students participating in the magnet lottery only. (We will have a separate process for all other new students after the lottery is completed.)

If your child is seated in the lottery, you will have 10 business days to present the original documents to Lincoln Center. If the documents are not received by that date, your child's seat will given to the next student on the list. If your child is not seated in the lottery, you must bring the original documents to Lincoln Center before your child will be permitted to attend his or her base school.

  • Send electronic copies, photos, or scans of your documents (child's birth certificate or passport, parent photo ID, and proof of residence) to registration@chccs.k12.nc.us by 5:00 p.m., Friday, May 29. We will send a confirmation within 2 business days.

  • We prefer that you send your documents by email. If you need to mail them, they must be received by Student Enrollment before 5:00 p.m., Friday, May 29. Our mailing address is Student Enrollment, Lincoln Center, 750 S. Merritt Mill Road, Chapel Hill, NC  27516. We will send a confirmation via mail. Please do not send originals through the mail.
