While there are technically 3 phases of the HISD lottery, the only one that matters is Phase 1. Any application submitted after Phase I is 99% guaranteed not to place into a desirable school, because all of the spots will have already been taken.
The deadline to apply for the 2020-2021 school year has not been announced yet, but will likely be around December 6, 2019.
