District Lottery Procedures: The Anchorage School District uses a lottery system to provide an equal opportunity for students who request participation in an alternative program or school for which the number of applications exceeds the number of available openings. Approval or denial is based on space availability, grade level and gender balance. No student shall be denied participation because of a physical, mental, or learning disability, or special need. Lottery procedures are determined by school board policy 322.3.

  • Once notified, parents have two (2) school days to accept or reject the school/program opening.
  • To remain on a wait list, parents must notify the school/program of their decision.
  • It is the parent’s responsibility to provide updated contact information to the school/program.

Program Information Requirements: Parents will be provided with additional information regarding each program (philosophy, program goals, parental and student commitments that are a part of the particular alternative program guidelines) and any required orientations, information sessions, or visits at the end of the application process.
