When a Student is Accepted, Required Registration Information will include:

  • Completed Registration Forms
  • Original Birth Certificate
  • Current Immunization Record
  • Proof of Vision Screening (Kindergarten only)
  • Special Education Information (if applicable) – If your student has been serviced in Special Education, we will need to obtain a current copy of the IEP or 504 so that our resource team can address the needs of your student. Wasatch Charter School will request records from your student’s current school upon registration.
  • Proof of Custody / Guardianship (if applicable)

How many students may enroll?

Wasatch Charter School may accept up to 540 students, and the distribution among grades may vary from one year to the next based on numbers of applications in each grade.  There are currently 30 to 90 students in each grade, depending on the grade.

How does the lottery process work?

The lottery process is done completely at random, through a state-approved lottery draw software.  Preference is given to the siblings of students already enrolled. In addition, based on state law, up to 5% of enrollment may be reserved for the children of employees and founders of WCS. Otherwise all students are admitted randomly.

How do I transfer to a new school?

Utah State Law governs student transfers between Utah’s public charter schools and school districts.

If a student has accepted enrollment to WCS for the school year and the parent wishes to withdraw the student from WCS for enrollment in another Utah charter school or school district, the parent of a student enrolled at WCS must obtain approval from both the WCS administration and the Utah school district or charter school in which enrollment is sought. The WCS administration will provide such approval once notice of approval by the new school has been received.

If a student wishes to enroll at WCS but has accepted enrollment to another Utah charter school for the school year, the student’s parent must obtain approval from both the WCS administration and the Utah charter school in which the student is already enrolled. Student records will be released as soon as all appropriate paperwork is completed.
