Tapestry is a public charter school authorized by the DeKalb County School District. For 2020– 2021, any student residing in the DeKalb County School District in grades 6 – 12 is eligible to attend, subject to lottery and seat availability.
Please note that parts of Atlanta and Decatur are also in DeKalb County, but they are zoned for Atlanta Public Schools and City of Decatur Schools, respectively. In order for your child to attend Tapestry, you must provide proof that you live in the DeKalb County School District. The only exception is for children of board members or full-time employees.
Open Enrollment for the 2020– 2021 runs Monday, December 2, 2019 – Monday, February 3, 2020.
No, your child will be guaranteed a seat next year. However, you must sign a Letter of Intent to Re-enroll Form that will be sent home in early January and must be returned no later than Monday, February 3, 2020. You will forfeit your child’s spot if the form is not returned by the deadline.
The lottery draw will take place on Saturday, February 22, 2020 at 10:00 am at the school.
Families are invited but not required to attend the lottery. Families will be notified via email of their child’s placement and the lottery results will also be published on the website.
Charter law prohibits the school from prescribing a ratio of students, such as having separate lotteries for special needs students and typically developing students. Therefore, all students are selected in the same open lottery.
Our charter does allow for priority enrollment to be given to children of full time employees or board members and to siblings of currently enrolled students. The sibling policy is in place in order to support families and afford them the convenience of sending their children to the same school. If a student is selected to attend Tapestry either in the lottery or from the waitlist, his/her sibling(s) will also be offered a seat. In no case will a seat be given to a sibling who is lower on the waitlist instead of the student who is originally selected.
