  3. Filling open spots:
  • An automatic enrollment preference shall be extended to siblings of students currently in SILA, and children of founding members of the SILA.
  • If the number of applications received do not exceed the number of spaces available:
    • All students who have submitted applications by the enrollment deadline will be accepted for admission. Students will be contacted in the order of applications received.
  • If the number of applications exceed the number of spaces available:
    • All applicants will be placed in a lottery pool. Totally random selection will ensure fairness and equal access without regard to ethnicity, national origin, disability, gender and income level. The SILA Governance Board will perform the lottery and it will be part of the school record. Those students not accepted by the lottery will be placed on a priority waiting list in the order drawn. Students will be contacted in the order established by the lottery.
  • If additional applications are received after the enrollment period for students living within the district (open enrollment has passed for out of district students), and there is room the student will be accepted on a first come first serve basis prior to the school year beginning. If SILA is at capacity, then the students will be put on the waiting list.
  • For students selected based on the above criteria, the SILA Application Committee will meet with the parent(s) and student(s) to discuss the SILA and the student needs to determine if SILA is a good fit for the student.
