Lottery - Venture Academy’s Advisory Site Council is responsible for executing the lottery if a waiting list develops for enrollment in our academies. If necessary, voting members of the Council will be called in for a special meeting to conduct a lottery. A quorum is needed to oversee the drawing of the names and the subsequent assignment of students.
A lottery becomes necessary when one of the “programs of choice” is full and/or there are more requests for enrollment than space available. All names of students requesting a program that is full will be placed into a box. All names will be pulled and numbered. The placements into the program will be made in numerical order until all openings are filled. The remaining numbered students will be placed, in numerical order, on a waiting list and will be notified of openings as they arise.
