  • Isn't a lottery, in and of itself, a selection process?

  • Given that Simeon's complete application packet includes the 7th grade standardized test scores, first period of 8th grade report card, a typed written essay, letters of recommendation from counselors & teachers, as well as the cumulative records, they certainly could select students based on academic background. In fact, the CPS page states that Simeon is not a neighborhood school, instead selecting its applicants based on test scores.
