Enrollment Support FAQs

My Student is new to WAVA and just enrolled. Why is my student on the wait list?

We received and processed your Choice Transfer Request after the grade your student intended to enroll in was full, or we received your Choice Transfer Request after August 14th.

My WAVA Student was granted Conditional Approval at the end of the school year last year. What does that mean?

It means we conditionally accepted and enrolled your student without you submitting a new Choice Transfer Request or an Immunization Record (if needed) at the time of your student’s enrollment. This was allowed due to School District Offices being closed due to the Pandemic. Families were required to submit their student’s documents by 8/19 as the condition of the approval. Students that did not have those documents submitted 8/19/20 were either withdrawn or moved to the wait list.

I am on the wait list, what does that mean?

It means that your student is on the wait list for a spot at WAVA. It also means that your Choice Transfer Request is in a pending status. This allows you to still enroll your student in their home school district as you wait for a spot at WAVA to open. If you are on the wait list, please contact your home district to let them know if you plan to re-enroll, homeschool, or transfer to a private school, while you wait for a spot at WAVA to open.

When can people on the Wait List transfer to WAVA?

When spots are available, we will notify you ASAP. Your student can transfer during one of our transfer windows. Our transfer windows are as follows: 9/14-9/21, 11/16-11/23, 1/19-1/26, 3/2-3/8.

Can I still apply and enroll?

We are still accepting transfers and enrollments for grades K-7. Though, if there is a wait list for that grade, the student will be placed on the wait list once their Choice Transfer Request is received by WAVA.

My student was withdrawn/wait listed even though all my documents including the Choice Transfer Request was submitted will before 8/19.

If this is the case you can email Josh Gannis at jgannis@wava.org. Please be patient as this inbox is receiving an enormous amount of traffic.
