Give to Hayden Canyon Charter

How will I know if my child has been accepted for application?

After the lottery drawing is complete, you will receive an email that indicates the status of your child within their grade level, and whether a student was drawn first giving their siblings priority status. The email will also include the date you need to notify the school if you intend to your enroll your student in Hayden Canyon Charter.

You will receive a separate email for each child on your lottery application. Please be patient as we send these emails, and know that they may come minutes, or even hours, apart.

How does sibling priority affect the lottery process?

If a child is drawn first, it will give their siblings priority in the school or the wait list for their grade.

Please note, if the first child drawn chooses not to enroll at the time of registration, the other students within the family will lose their sibling priority status, moving them back to their original lotteried position.

What is the process if my child is offered application?

Once an offer of application has been made parents will be given a time frame within which to respond to the offer. For the 2019-2020 school year, responses must be received by March 21, 2019. If the offer is accepted, parents will be sent application paperwork. Completion and return of the application paperwork is needed to hold the application spot.

What happens if I don't respond to the offer of application?

If you fail to notify the school your student will be enrolled, we will make an effort to contact through two different forms of communication as provided on the student application. If we do not hear from you regarding the offer of application by the acceptance deadline, the seat will be given to another student.

What happens if there is an opening in the middle of the school year?

If there is an opening mid- year the first student on the waiting list for the grade in which the opening occurred will be offered the open spot.

Can I still apply if the lottery deadline has already passed?

Yes. When applications are received after the lottery deadline, the student will be placed at the bottom of the grade level list for which they qualify.

Do I have to re-apply each year?

Yes. Idaho Statute requires that the waiting list for all charter schools be re-drawn annually. This means that if your student did not gain application in the prior year, but was on the waiting list, you will still need to re-apply each year until they are accepted.
