- Once a student has been admitted to the school through an appropriate process, he or she may remain in attendance through subsequent grades. A new applicant for admission to the charter school, however, would be subject to the lottery if, as of the open enrollment closing date, the total number of applicants exceeds the number of spaces available at the school. Open Enrollment dates will be publicly announced and will adhere to Utah State Statute.
- A lottery is a random selection process by which the Salt Lake School for the Performing Arts admits applicants. SLSPA will use a lottery if, during the open enrollment period, more students apply for admission to the charter school (in any grade) than can be admitted. During a public meeting, an accepted lottery process will be used to select students. The random drawing will begin with 12th grade, proceeding down through 9th, and each student is assigned a number identifying the order in which they are drawn. Following the lottery preferential enrollment is addressed. Afterwards classes are filled to capacity using the sequence obtained from the lottery drawing.
