What is the policy regarding sibling preference?

Sibling preference is only offered for elementary school transfers.  A sibling lottery is conducted only for students who have brothers or sisters in the same household who already attend the school to which they are applying.  Because of the limited number of  spaces available and the great numbers of requests for sibling preference there is no guarantee that siblings  will be placed in the same school.
