    If the number of applicants exceeds available space at the designated DALE campus, a lottery process will be used for the selection process. Siblings of students already in the DALE program have priority in program selection. 

    Ray Elementary, Cottonwood Creek Elementary, Kerley Elementary and Veterans’ Hill Elementary are DALE Program campuses. The designated campus is determined by the student’s address. Transportation will be provided for students accepted into the program who meet the transportation eligibility criteria.

    Sibling Transfer
    Students accepted into the DALE program that have siblings wishing to attend the same campus, must submit the Hutto ISD transfer applications for those siblings. The transfer process is not automatic for siblings not in the DALE Program.
