Lottery Process.  The Idaho Legislature established the lottery process for charter school admission through Idaho Code Statute 33-5206. As a brief overview, all applicants are placed into grade-level-specific 'Lottery Priority Groups' as follows and are drawn in order based on these groupings: 

 First Priority: Applicants that are children of full-time employees or children of Sage International School.

Second Priority: Applicants that are siblings of students already attending Sage International are grouped..  

Third Priority: Applicants that reside within Sage International's primary area of attendance, which happens to be the same district line as the Boise School District.  

Fourth Priority: Applicants that reside outside Sage International's primary area of attendance.  

When are Lottery Results Posted.  The results will be posted on Sage International School's website by 5:00 PM on Friday, March 1st, 2019.

Offers for Enrollment.  All students that secure placement during the lottery will receive an email from Sage International providing an 'Offer for Enrollment’. Offers of enrollment must be accepted within 48 hrs. If a response is not received within 48 hours, the student’s name will be moved to the bottom of the enrollment or waiting list.  Students that do not secure placement during the lottery will be placed on a waiting list and, if space becomes available, will be contacted at that time.

Waiting List. The results of each annual lottery create and offer of enrollment list and then a waiting list. Waiting lists do not carry from year-to-year and are replaced yearly from the results of the annual enrollment lottery. If you miss the enrollment lottery application period and online waiting list application is available on the Sage International School Website.
