All Lottery Ticket Numbers are randomly drawn by computer to create a Waitlist position. The results will be posted on the ts4arts.org home page and the front door of our school building, along with those Ticket Numbers designated to proceed to the Next Steps process based on Waitlist position. Neither Waitlist position nor invitation to the Next Steps process guarantees an offer. Open spaces will be determined after enrollment availability per grade level is confirmed.
