IDEA’s 2017 Student Lottery to Be Held January 28



Is your application in for IDEA’s student lottery on January 28?  Apply now to meet the January 27 deadline.

Every year, when there are more applications than spots available, IDEA Public Schools holds a student lottery to randomly select who will fill spots at IDEA campuses for the upcoming school year.  The selection process is done randomly to ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to attend an IDEA school.  This year, IDEA’s lottery will be held Saturday, January 28, 2017. 

Families will be notified shortly after the lottery is conducted regarding their child’s application.  Students who are not selected to attend IDEA Public Schools will be added to the network’s waiting list, where their information will remain on file for the remainder of the school year.  Students are then selected from the waiting list if a spot becomes available at an IDEA school.

Interested in applying to IDEA? Here’s everything you need to know about how to enroll your child this week:

  • Applying to IDEA is easy and students are selected as long as there are open seats available in their grade.
  • To enter the lottery, you must submit a completed application before the deadline on Friday, January 27.

Applications can be completed online at ideapublicschools.org/apply
