If more students apply to a school than there are spaces are available, each school will conduct a lottery to determine which applicants will be offered admission. A computer system randomly selects names based on priorities in each charter school’s lottery. The process is automatic, and is audited. Each school has its own admissions priorities and waiting list process. Please refer to each school’s pages on this website for more information on that school’s admissions priorities. Lottery priorities vary by school, and all are authorized by the school board, a county office of education, or the state. Each school will contact students on the waiting list if space becomes available.
