Lottery Dates – 2021-22 Academic Year

Wolf Creek Online High School will hold its yearly enrollment lottery for new student enrollment positions for the Fall of 2021 on February 9th 2021. (All returning supplemental students must re-apply.)

The sibling preference lottery will be held the prior day.

All applicants should apply by these dates.

Current students must affirm their need for an enrollment position in an advisory lesson in Schoology during Quarter 4.

Enrollment positions at Wolf Creek, especially for supplemental enrollment, can fill quickly, so we encourage students to apply before the lottery date.

Waiting List Procedures

  • Wolf Creek School may create two waiting lists; one for full time students, one for students receiving “supplemental services”.
  • In addition preference may be given to supplemental students wishing to move to full time status after the period of one term.
  • It will be the responsibility of both the Director and Dean of Students to maintain the waiting lists and inform parents of their status on the list periodically.
  • Based on the fact that another school within 5 miles offers grade levels similar to Wolf Creek we will not be granting geographical preference for students.
  • Any student on the TRIO Wolf Creek Distance Learning Charter School waiting list will be notified when a position has opened for them to enroll both by phone and mail. They will have 7 calendar days in which to respond that they would like to enroll at Wolf Creek or decline the position. If the student/parent does not respond within 7 calendar days their name will be removed from the waiting list at that time and another student may take their enrollment place.
