Families had until February 9 to contact schools and enrollment centers of their intentions to keep their assigned placement or to go back into the waiting pool for the Tier 2 lottery. Blaine CEMS, Coon Rapids BioMed, and Anoka MS for the Arts had earlier assignment deadlines due to class registration which happened earlier than the NWSISD assignment deadline.

Families will be notified of their Tier 2 lottery assignments the week of March 19, 2018.
