Admissions Methods 
       As announced by city and agency leadership, DOE public middle schools will use an open admissions method this year. This means that programs will pause on screening, or using applicants’ academic records, auditions, or other assessments to evaluate or admit students. This will affect programs with a screened, composite score, or talent test admissions method. If a school has more applicants than available seats, offers will be made using priority groups (when applicable) and random selection (a lottery). 
      Dual Language programs that previously screened will rank applicants based on ELL data. Academic information will not be used. ​
