Idaho’s Charter School 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: Children of full-time employees, and children of Sage Founders (provided that this admission preference shall be limited to not more than 10% of the initial capacity of Sage International School).

Second Priority: Siblings of students already selected by the lottery

Third Priority: Students enrolled the previous school year at Rolling Hills Public Charter School and entering 9th grade, and students enrolled the previous school year at Future Public School and entering 7th grade.

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

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


Non-Discrimination: Sage International School of Boise does not discriminate on the basis of 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.
