2020-2021 Sage Sibling Lottery Application
:  Siblings of current Sage students who will be entering the 2020-2021 lottery will need to fill out the Sage Sibling Lottery Application that is made available ONLY through “Re-Entry Registration” for your current Sage student.  Re-entry registration will open on January 27th and close on February 13th.  This is the ONLY way we can distinguish siblings from applicants in the general lottery pool.  You’ll need to complete a sibling application for each new sibling entering the lottery. 

 

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
: Board approved Founders

Second Priority
: Applicants that are children of full-time employees and/or siblings of students already attending Sage International School.

Third Priority
: Applicants that reside within the Boise School District Attendance Boundaries. 

Fourth Priority
: Applicants that reside outside the Boise School District Attendance Boundaries.

 

When are the Lottery results posted?  The results will be posted on our website by the end of day-Thursday, February 27th, 2020.

 

Offers for Enrollment:  All students that secure placement during the lottery will receive an email from Sage International School Registrar providing an ‘Offer for Enrollment’ (be sure to check your spam/junk folder).  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 waiting list come time.  Students that do not secure placement during the lottery will be placed on a waiting list and, if space becomes available, will be contact at that time, via email.

 

Waiting List:   Each year, we make enrollment offers based on the lottery. For each grade level where we are not able to offer every applicant a spot at Sage International (demand exceeds capacity), we establish a grade level wait list. If/as seats open, we make enrollment offers based on the waitlist. You can always add your student to the waitlist throughout the year (see link to left) and we make enrollment offers all year long if/as seats open. If you were not offered a spot through the lottery, don't be discouraged; make sure you are on the wait list and know that we make enrollment offers all year - be patient! 

Waiting lists do not carry over from year-to-year and are replaced yearly from the results of the annual enrollment lottery.  If you missed the 2020-2021 enrollment lottery application period, an online waiting list application for 2020-2021 will become available in April 2020 on our website. 


Non-Discrimination
:  Sage International School of Boise does not discriminate on the basis on race, color, religion, and national or ethnic origin in its educational and admissions policies and affords to all students the rights, privileges, programs and activities made available at the school.
