Fall 2013 Enrollment
Early Light Academy will be accepting applications for the 2013-2014 school year starting Monday, January 7, 2013. The first lottery draw will be held January 31, 2013. Additional lottery draws will be held on an as-needed-basis as spots become available.
Completion and submission of an enrollment application does not guarantee admission to, or constitute acceptance in, Early Light Academy. Your application is subject to approval and selection guidelines set forth by the Early Light Academy School Board, which may include a lottery selection process.
Please be sure to fill out ALL appropriate information and requested fields before you submit the application. Be sure to double check dates, phone numbers and email addresses. It is imperative for all information to be complete. Be sure to record your confirmation number which allows you to update important changes as they become necessary. This will also be emailed to you automatically.
Should there be more students applied than positions available, student names will be randomly ordered and chosen on that basis, referred to as a lottery.
Every effort will be made to accept all siblings in an individual family, but this may not be possible due to the cap on class sizes. Siblings of students currently in the school will be given preference if openings become available.
The school does not discriminate in its admission policies or practices on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, disability, or any other protected classification.
Definitions of status are as follows:
Applied – Not yet accepted into the school through the random lottery process
Accepted – Accepted into the school, but you still need to complete registration paperwork
Registered – Enrolled and completed registration paperwork
Declined – Either accepted into the school and you did not complete registration paperwork before the deadline or changed your mind about wanting to be considered for the school.
For questions about open enrollment, please see Enrollment FAQ.
Early Light Academy is a public charter school, and like all public schools, is available to students of all ability levels and will not discriminate in program benefits, participation, employment, or treatment on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or gender.
In accordance with Utah State Code Section 53A-1A 506.5 (2), the parent of a student enrolled in a charter school may withdraw the student from that charter school for enrollment in another charter school or a school district by:
This means that a family has the right to withdraw from Early Light Academy and re-enroll in a local district school without further procedure through June 30th. However, after June 30th, both the school from which a student is withdrawing as well as the prospective school for enrollment must authorize the change. Families run no risk of being denied re-enrollment in the local district up through June 30th. The intent of the law is to help all schools, both district and charter, to have a solid projection of enrollment no later than June 30th for the purposes of staffing/hiring.
