New Resource: Maintaining Lottery Integrity in Times of Crisis

Clear and transparent lotteries are critical to ensuring equitable access for students to enroll in charter schools. All states require the use of lotteries in situations when charter schools are oversubscribed, and while quality authorizers ensure that all charter schools have appropriate lottery policies in place, policies and practices may require adjustments during times of crisis.

This new guidance was developed to support authorizers in ensuring charter school lotteries are conducted with integrity and transparency in the best interests of students and families during the COVID-19 pandemic. It builds on NACSA’s foundational lottery practices to include crisis considerations.
