Each year, the enrollment process will a) fill a new grade of Kindergarten students, and b) position students to take seats that may come available in first grade and above.
To the extent that demand exceeds the number of available seats for any given grade, the administration will conduct a public, system-generated, grade-level lottery. The public lottery will take place at Treasure Valley Classical Academy, 500 SW 3rd Street, Fruitland, ID 83619. Lottery results will be posted to each applicant’s online SchoolMint account on the day of the lottery.
In accordance with Treasure Valley Classical Academy’s charter and as permitted by IDAPA § 08-02-04 7, Treasure Valley Classical Academy will grant enrollment preference to children of board members and of full-time employees, to the siblings of currently-enrolled students and to students who reside within Payette County.
“Sibling” means a child who shares at least one common biological or legal parent whether through natural or adoptive means, including biological siblings that share parents; half siblings that share a single parent; step siblings that share a parent or parents through marriage even if the marriage was terminated by death or dissolution; children who share a parent or parents through adoption or guardianship; and foster children awaiting permanent placement. Siblings, for the purpose of Treasure Valley Classical Academy’s enrollment process, must reside within the State of Idaho.
The result of the lottery for rising Kindergarten students will be a list of 50 “seated” students, plus a numerical wait list. The result of the lottery for first grade students and above will be a numerical wait list. Wait list number may be monitored by parents through their online SchoolMint account. The school will use the wait list to offer available seats to students on a grade-by-grade basis as they become available.
