Entry into the Foxborough Regional Charter School is gained through public lottery. Applications may be submitted all year long. Two lotteries are held each year; one in March and one in July.
Applications received between July 1st and the last day before February vacation are processed through the March lottery. Applications received after the February deadline and before the last business day in June are processed through the July lottery.
Each application is assigned an ID number to maintain anonymity in the lottery process. Lottery applications are categorized into three groups (1) sibling; (2) in-district; and (3) out-of-district.
Applications are drawn at each grade level in the following order: Sibling applications have priority and are processed first. In-district applications are processed second and out-of-district applications are processed third.
Results are documented electronically, manually and through the tracking of the drawn cards and are verified within 24 hours of the lottery. After results have been cross referenced and verified, they are officially posted to the school website. Lottery Event Frequently Asked Questions answered here.
