How Do The Lottery And Waitlists Work For BASIS Charter Schools?

If the number of applicants during Open Enrollment exceeds the number of openings (at any grade level), enrollment is determined by a lottery and waitlist numbers. The Open Enrollment period for BASIS Charter Schools is NOT first come, first served. Only applications completed during the Open Enrollment period are included in the lottery.
