News and Announcements

2015-16 GE Lottery to be held on Thursday, March 5, 2015
Moanalua Middle School has received more transfer requests (GE's) than we have space for. A lottery will be held for applicants who completed Sections I & II and submitted the form to Moanalua Middle by the deadline (2nd business day in March). The lottery is scheduled for March 5, 2015 at 3:00 pm in the school library. Parents will not be notified at the lottery if the GE was approved or denied. The lottery simply assigns a number to all GE applications. Moanalua Middle School will notify applicants of an approval or denial in writing around the first week of April. Please review the attached flowchart to follow the process. A wait list is generated after the GE denial's have been sent, to fill openings as they occur during the school year. GE applications submitted after the deadline may be place on the wait list according to the date the application is received. If you have questions, please contact the school office at 305-1289.
