We renew our waiting pool each year.  Our current waiting pool is emptied and a new lottery is drawn after the open enrollment period, usually between mid November and mid January (we follow the Polk County School Board dates for open enrolment) for any open spots in the next school year.  A second waiting pool is established after open enrollment, but the first waiting pool has priority over the second.
