ADMISSIONS POLICIES AND LOTTERY PROCEDURES
All students eligible for enrollment in a North Carolina public school are eligible for enrollment at IC Imagine. To apply fill out the online application above. If you are unable to fill out the online application, please come to the school and we will help you complete it. Our open enrollment period begins on November 1, 2016 and ends on January 31, 2017 at 8pm. At that time, it will be determined if we have more applications than spaces available for each grade. If there are more applicants than space available, a lottery will be held to determine admission and the waiting list showing Order of Entry. The lottery will be held on a date to be determined. This is a public, open meeting and anyone is welcome to attend. You do not have to be present to receive an enrollment spot. Any applications that are received after the January 31st deadline will be added to the waiting list in the order that they are received.
IC Imagine will follow all rules and regulations regarding enrollment priority as specified in charter school law. The following groups will have enrollment priority at IC Imagine in this order:
- Children of full time IC Imagine employees (not to exceed 15% of total school population). If there are more employee children applying than space available, a separate lottery will be held prior to the general lottery to determine the Order of Entry for employee children.
- Siblings of currently enrolled students. The law defines a sibling to include any of the following who reside in the same household: half siblings, step-siblings, and children residing in a family foster home. If there are more siblings applying than space available, a sibling lottery will be held prior to the general lottery. This will determine the Order of Entry for siblings.
The results of the lottery will be mailed via USPS within one week of the lottery. Those who receive enrollment spots will be notified via email as well.
IC Imagine Charter School’s Right to Refuse Enrollment
IC Imagine reserves the right to refuse to enroll any student currently under a term of expulsion or suspension by his or her school until that term is over.
IC Imagine reserves the right to refuse to enroll a student if a parent willingly and knowingly provided incorrect information on the application.
Acceptance of Enrollment
Parents/guardians will have until two weeks after the enrollment packet is sent out to accept or decline enrollment. If the school does not hear from the parent/guardian by this date, the school will make reasonable attempts to contact the parent/guardian. If there is no response, the school reserves the right to remove the student from their enrollment roster and offer the next student on the waiting list the spot.
If a student has accepted enrollment at the school, but does not appear at the school on the first day, the school will make reasonable attempts to contact the parent. If there is no response from the parent within 24 hours, the school reserves the right to remove the student from their enrollment roster and offer the spot to the next student on the waiting list.
