Enrollment Preference

In compliance with Utah Code 53A-1a506, SHCS first enrolls its existing students for the following school year and secondarily gives enrollment preference to the following groups:

  • Children currently attending SHCS
  • Siblings of students currently enrolled at SHCS
  • Children of employees of SHCS (not grandchildren or other relatives)
  • Siblings of students accepted through the current lottery

Admissions Lottery Process

The SHCS Lottery will take place at the school on March 14, 2019 at 6 pm.

If the number of applicants exceeds the capacity of the classes, grade levels, or school, then those to be admitted are chosen at random through a lottery process as outlined by the State of Utah. Admission policies will be administered in compliance with all applicable local, state, and federal laws and regulations.

The lottery process begins with 8th grade applicants. It will then proceed down through kindergarten, giving preference to the first drawn names and then to the siblings of the first drawn. The lottery will also determine the priority list position for all other applicants at specified grade levels.

Anyone not accepted through the lottery will be placed on a wait list and seats will be filled if they come available. Names of individuals whose enrollment applications are received after the lottery, will be placed on a wait list.

If your child is selected through the lottery, you will be notified by email. Upon receipt of an email invitation, you will need to respond to SHCS within a specified period of time. The email will indicate a deadline for when your response is due. If you do not respond by the deadline given, you will forfeit the invitation and the invitation will be extended to another lottery applicant.  

Transfers and Withdrawals

State Code 53A Subsection (2)(a) prevents a parent of a student who is enrolled in a charter school or who has accepted an offer of admission to a charter school from duplicating enrollment for the student in another charter school or a school district without following the withdrawal procedures described in Subsection (3) as listed below:

The parent of a student enrolled in a charter school may withdraw the student from the charter school for enrollment in another charter school or a school district by submitting to the charter school:

(a) On or before June 30, a notice of intent to enroll the student in the student’s school of residence for the following school year;
(b) After June 30, a letter of acceptance for enrollment in the student’s school district of residence for the following school year;
(c) A letter of acceptance for enrollment in the student’s school district of residence in the current school year;
(d) A letter of acceptance for enrollment in a nonresident school district; or
(e) A letter of acceptance for enrollment in a charter school.

Unless provisions have previously been made for a student’s enrollment in another school, SHCS is required to notify the school district of residence immediately upon releasing a student from enrollment at SHCS during a school year.
