High School Application Results Available March 27

Dear GoCPS Applicant Families,

We hope all is well with you and your children during these challenging times. In light of the mandated statewide school closures in response to COVID-19, we are reaching out with important information regarding the GoCPS high school application process.

Application Timeline

As previously scheduled, high school application results will still be released on Friday, March 27, but we have extended the acceptance window to give families more time to make their decisions.

● March 27: Round 1 application results released.
● April 22: Deadline to accept or decline offers.
● April 27: Waitlist process opens.

If you have signed a proxy form for your child’s counselor to complete the accept/decline process on your behalf, be sure to communicate with your child’s counselor about your decision before they take any actions. Since most CPS staff are currently working remotely due to school closures, the best way to initiate this conversation is to email your child’s counselor. Please refer to the staff directory on your school’s website or contact the main office for assistance.

The CPS Office of Access and Enrollment is working to assess the impact of school closures on the remainder of the GoCPS high school application timeline and will communicate any other changes or adjustments as soon as possible.

Accessing Results

Online applicants will receive their first-round results on March 27 via their online GoCPS account between 5:00 p.m. and 11:59 p.m. CST. Paper applicants will receive a notification letter sent via U.S. mail to the home address on their application. In addition, paper applicants can view their results in an online GoCPS account that has been opened for them by the Office of Access and Enrollment using the email address or phone number on their paper application.

*Please note that the GoCPS application site will be down from March 24 – March 27 at 5:00 p.m. CST as we prepare to release results, so you will not be able to access the site until offers are posted.*

If you have questions about how to access your offers, please review the full text of a recent robocall to you with those details here, or contact the Office of Access and Enrollment at 773-553-2060 or gocps@cps.edu.
