PSI Lottery & Wait List

The total number of seats available at PSI for students entering Kindergarten is 88. Of those 88 seats, 20 are designated for students who are eligible for free and reduced priced meals. Of the remaining seats, siblings of currently enrolled students are also admitted. After those seat allocations have been made, the District will conduct a computer-generated lottery of the remaining applicants to fill the remaining seats. If there are more applicants than seats available, students will be wait-listed and notified of their position on the waitlist. Seats that become open during the applicant’s kindergarten or first grade year will be filled from the waitlist in the order the names appear on that wait list, with priority given to those who reside in St. Louis Park. The wait list will be maintained only until the end of the applicant’s first grade year.

Please note that this application is for St. Louis Park residents ONLY. PSI applications are mailed to all St. Louis Park residents in early January. This application is a sample only and NOT meant to be downloaded and printed. All St. Louis Park residents with children eligible for Kindergarten will be mailed a PSI application the week of January 4, 2021.
