Never said anything about who and how the lottery is conducted. Your attempt to change the subject has failed.<quoted text>
"(1) The person(s) conducting the selection of lottery applicants or acting as an impartial observer of the selection of lottery applicants shall not be a board member or employee of the school, or a parent, person in parental relationship, grandparent, sibling, aunt, uncle or first cousin of any applicant to the school or of any pupil enrolled in the school."
Are you saying that someone form the Utica Charter School is or has been breaking the law?
All applicants are put in the lottery. Even those from outside the district even though those who live in the district are given preference over them.
I asked about how the names are collected that actually end up in that lottery. They are pre-screened based on educational criteria of those prospective students. Lets not be naive here. Charter schools only want students that will perform well as that will impact their own success as a school. the lottery process may be fair but the selection of the names going in is not.
