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: Board approved Founders

Second Priority: Applicants that are children of full-time employees or children of Sage International School.

Third Priority: Applicants that reside within Forge International's primary area of attendance – see link left  

Fourth Priority: Applicants that reside outside Sage International's primary area of attendance.  

When are Lottery Results Posted.  The results will be posted on Forge International School's website by 5:00 PM on Wednesday, February 27th, 2019.

Offers for Enrollment.  All students that secure placement during the lottery will receive an email from Forge International providing an 'Offer for Enrollment’. Offers of enrollment must be accepted within 48 hrs. If a response is not received within 48 hours, the student’s name will be moved to the bottom of the enrollment or waiting list.  Students that do not secure placement during the lottery will be placed on a waiting list and, if space becomes available, will be contacted at that time.

 Waiting List. The results of each annual lottery create and offer of enrollment list and then a waiting list. Waiting lists do not carry from year-to-year and are replaced yearly from the results of the annual enrollment lottery. If you miss the enrollment lottery application period and online waiting list application is available on the Sage International School Website.

 Non-Discrimination:  Forge International School does not discriminate on the basis on 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.
