Public Lottery Drawing
At the close of open enrollment on February 28th, 2018 Rising Sun will place all returning students into leveled classes for next year. New applications will then be considered once the number of available spaces in each classroom is determined. If Rising Sun receives fewer new student applications than available space, parents/guardians will be notified of acceptance and will have five business days to reply that they accept the offer to enroll at Rising Sun. Failure to respond within the five business days will result in the forfeiture of the enrollment spot and the student will have to re-apply for the next enrollment cycle which runs from March 1st 2018 until April 6th, 2018.
If Rising Sun receives more new student applications than available space, parents will be notified via email and a lottery will take place on March 13th, 2018 at 4:50 pm in the Taurus Classroom located on our campus at 7006 Rossmore Lane in El Dorado Hills. Lottery groupings will be based on the priority criterion listed on the initial application and in accordance with our charter petition. Parents/Guardians need not be present to have their student considered in the lottery drawing. After the lottery drawing is completed, parents/guardians will be notified via email of either their admission to Rising Sun, or their placement on a waiting list, as well as their wait list number. Parents/Guardians will then have five business days to reply with their acceptance of the offer to enroll or placement on the waiting list at Rising Sun for the Fall of 2018. Parents/Guardians who do not respond with acceptance of either admission or placement on the wait list within five business days will be removed from the current enrollment pool and will have to re-apply during our second enrollment cycle, which will run from March 1st through April 6th.
