Because Lusher Charter School has more applicants than seats for the next school year, officials will hold lotteries to select students and assemble waiting lists.

The lotteries will be held Wednesday and Friday.* I’ll live blog them here.

You can follow along as the results are called or check back later; the results of the lotteries will remain on this page after the events have ended.

The schedule:

  • Grades 6-12, Wednesday, 8:30 a.m.
  • Grades 1-5 , Friday, 9 a.m.
  • Kindergarten, Friday, 1:30 p.m.

Lusher has posted information on its admissions process on its website.

Editor’s note: The Lens is an independent, nonprofit news site and is not affiliated with any charter school. This blog is not an official confirmation of admission; parents will hear from the school directly about the results.

*Correction: An earlier story had the incorrect schedule for the Lusher lotteries. The story now reports the correct schedule. (March 19, 2014)

Wednesday: Grades 6-12

Friday morning: Grades 1-5

Friday afternoon: Kindergarten
