Important Reminders for Groton Families:
- Only families who live within the boundaries of Groton Public Schools may apply.
- You do not need to submit a lottery application if your child will attend their neighborhood school. Visit our School Locater Map if you need to identify your neighborhood school.
Students at CKMS and NEA who accepted a magnet seat in a prior year lottery and plan to stay at their school do not need to submit an application, unless you are interested changing your school.
What happens after I submit my application?
Once the application period closes, Groton Public Schools will conduct the district lottery. Families who have submitted an application will be contacted the first week of May.
