Lincoln Magnet School 2010 - 2011 Lottery

November 24, 2009

Lincoln Magnet School 2010 - 2011 Lottery was held on
Tuesday, November 24, 2009

Lincoln Magnet School had 357 applications for the 2009-2010 school year. While we are pleased that so many people are interested in attending LMS, it is difficult to turn away so many applicants. Parents who receive a letter of acceptance are asked to return the response form by December 14th . If parents choose to decline, we can offer their spot to the next person on the waiting list.

We have 115 seats for the 2010-2011 school year. Siblings claimed 15 seats, leaving 100 seats. Of those, 50 will be majority, and 50 will be minority to reflect the district ethnic analysis. There are also applications to be added to the waiting lists for 7th and 8th grade for next year.


Majority Applications 183
Majority siblings 8
Total applications 191


Minority Applications 159
Minority siblings 7
Total applications 166

Total combined applications: 357

Parents who receive a letter stating that they are on the waiting list need to be patient. We do not give out "standings" on the waiting list, because if there are no declines, there is no movement on the waiting list. Parents may e-mail (nheyen@springfield.k12.il.us) after January 5th to find out if there is movement on the waiting list.
