Lottery Process

Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment for 2020-21 School Year begins January 1, 2020 through April 3, 2020.


How the Lottery Process Works

REACH Leadership STEAM Academy holds a public lottery to determine applicant acceptance in all grades wherein more Student Lottery and Pre-Enrollment Forms are received than seats available.

Any lotteries will take place on Tuesday, April 28, 2020.

After Open Enrollment: closes on 4/3/20. All applicants who have completed a Student Lottery and Pre-Enrollment Form and provided proof of residency will receive a letter in the mail and an email with the applicant's lottery number(s)*.

For families with multiple siblings: If one sibling is accepted through the lottery process the 2nd sibling will be given priority. If space is available in the 2nd sibling's grade, they will be admitted. If no space is available they will be moved to the top of the waiting list.

Registration packets: will be available at the lottery for those applicants who are accepted.

Registration packets will be available in the office Monday-Friday 7am to 4pm for individual students who are accepted into the program. Registration packets must be picked up, completed, and returned by the deadline on the packet or your acceptance into REACH Leadership STEAM Academy will be forfeited.

Lottery results will be posted on the REACH website within 24 hours of the lottery.

Admission Preference

REACH Leadership Academy gives a preference in admissions to pupils who are currently enrolled in Highland Elementary or to pupils who reside in the Highland ES attendance area.

Those applicants who provide proof of residency within RUSD boundary will receive a 2nd lottery number. All applicants in the Highland ES attendance area will receive a 3rd lottery number.
