Register for the Lottery

Questions about numbers, and probability of coming off the waitlist:

  • Most families who receive offers are are considering 2 - 3 different schools.
  • Family decisions include factors such as commute time, sibling placement, cost of living in the bay area, and many other variables. The enrollment office is not able to predict the probability of coming off the waitlist. 
  • Seats can open over the course of the next five months. 
 "Making the world a better place,  and  you  can be the one to do it ..."  Where there's community, there's the potential to solve challenges. Two weeks of design lab culminated with d.tech's 'Empathy Museum' event, featuring an array of student-led ideas and prototypes, ranging from QR codes to help prospective 8th graders familiarize themselves with the campus, to a very animated train raising awareness of the safety of women on public transport. In the photo above, junior Nina K. (left), with sophomore Jack F.,  junior Riana P. and sophomore Imereta F. have put the finishing touches on their project. "We wanted to make people more aware of the homeless, and what we can do to support them." says Nina. For more photographs of student life,  click here .

  • The waitlist is maintained for one year after the lottery. Waitlists do not rollover from year to year. 
  • The decision deadline is coordinated to the best of d.tech's ability with other schools in our area to help families make decisions. Families receiving an offer from a school prior to d.tech's lottery should give that offer full consideration: the outcome of the d.tech lottery is unpredictable even for those with priority district weightings. 
  • Registering for the lottery does not constitute enrollment. Enrollment occurs after a family has been offered a spot and decides to accept and complete the enrollment process.
  • If you decide to accept an offer to enroll, you must inform your alternate choice school that you are withdrawing as one part of completing the d.tech enrollment process. You can not remain enrolled at the other school. If d.tech discovers that a family who accepted an offer is also enrolled at an alternate school, the d.tech enrollment will be rescinded to enable the student to honor their commitment to the other school.  If you need clarification on this, please email enroll@dtechhs.org
  • Nearly all enrollment is finalized within the first two weeks after the lottery. Attrition can also occur in the summer or early fall, which may result in offers being issued past the March 16 decision deadline.
