LTTS Charter School Inc. dba Universal Academy does not discriminate in the admission process based on gender, national origin, ethnicity, religion, disability, academic, artistic, or athletic ability, or the district the child would otherwise attend.
Eligible students must live in the districts set forth by the Texas Education Agency for Universal Academy.
Students currently enrolled receive a Notice to Return form on February 1st. This form ask parents and students to state whether they intend to return the following school year and to identify any siblings who wish to attend school the following year. The form must be returned by March 1st. Currently, enrolled students expressing a desire to return are automatically enrolled for the following school year upon timely receipt of the Notice to Return form.
Vacancies in each class are then determined, and siblings of returning students are given priority in admission. Admission forms from new students are accepted from March 7th to August 17th. If the number of eligible applicants does not exceed the number of vacancies, then all applicants who timely applied are offered admission.
If there are more eligible applicants than available spaces in a class, then a lottery will be conducted on August 20th. A name is drawn for each vacancy that exists, and each applicant whose name is drawn is offered admission. Parents do not need to be present at the lottery to gain entry for their student. Students will be accepted for enrollment at the lottery or from the wait list are notified by telephone and/or in writing. If a family cannot be reached by phone and the letter is returned without forwarding information, the school will go to the next student on the list to offer enrollment.
The remaining names are then drawn and placed on a waiting list in the order they were drawn. If a vacancy arises before the commencement of the school year or during the school year, the individual on the waiting list with the lowest number will be offered admission and then removed from the waiting list. If an admission form is received after the admission period has passed, the applicant’s name is added to the waiting list behind the names of the applicants who timely applied.
