Please note the 2021-2022 School year lottery is now closed.
The 2021-2022 Imagine Schools Military Lottery will open from March 22, 2021 12:01 am – June 1, 2021 11:59 pm.
***Note: This lottery is for the following:
- Students that are dependents of Military Personnel with Active Assigned Orders to Joint Base Andrews and live in Prince George’s County
- Students that are dependents of Military Personnel that resides on Joint Base Andrews
Please review the information below to ensure that you have the correct documents to successfully submit your application:
- You must obtain a Prince George’s County Public School student number for your child (this number is required to complete the charter school lottery application); to obtain a student number contact the boundary school assigned for your home address to make arrangements to obtain a student number. Please email Tina Chavis at email@example.com if you are currently residing outside of Prince Georges County, Maryland for additional information for obtaining a student number.
- Maryland State Law requires that a child be 5 years of age on or before September 1 to enter Kindergarten. We must abide by this law; therefore, if your child will be 5 years of age AFTER September 1 you cannot apply for lottery placement to a Charter School for Kindergarten.
(Attention: if you applied with Prince George’s County Public Schools during their open enrollment for Specialty Schools and you meet the requirements of a military family, please participate in this lottery.)

Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) is pleased to inform you that your child will be taking the district’s Formative Assessment System Test (FAST) Assessments for Science. The FAST Administrations will take place beginning on November 16th (Grade 8) and November 17th(Grade 5).
PGCPS will be using the Pearson TestNav platform to administer the FAST Assessments. Your child’s teacher will be communicating with you and your child to provide technological support, logistics, and steps on how to access the assessments in the Pearson TestNav platform.
The purpose of these assessments is to provide instructional tools for teachers to see what your child learned in Science during the first quarter. No grades will be assigned based on these assessment results. The results from the FAST Assessments will be used by teachers and schools to enhance instruction on skills your child is learning in the classroom.
Your child will need your support by helping them select a quiet place to complete each assessment and
removing all non-testing materials such as phones, textbooks, and notebooks to minimize distractions.
Your child may also need your assistance with connecting to the appropriate technology platforms and
applications. It is critical that your child take each assessment independently, with no assistance provided
within the remote learning setting, so they can show what they have learned from the first quarter’s
instruction. We are truly excited to provide the best e-learning opportunity and continue to support your
child’s educational needs.
For more information on the assessment platform or technical assistance, please;
● Visit the PGCPS Distance Learning Site
● Visit the Distance Learning Parent Resources
● Visit the PGCPS Student Portal
● Use one of the 9 Parent Support Centers across PGCPS. Parents and Families will be able to
receive help with technology, navigating online platforms and other troubleshooting related to
distance learning. Parents may call 240-696-3315 to receive live assistance.
● Use the Distance Learning Hotline for live assistance regarding technical/equipment issues
and/or instructional guidance and support 240-696-6229.
