Enrollment Capacity Information
The school’s enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year shall not exceed 2751 students in grades K-12. This cap is based on the school’s fall 2021 enrollment of 2051 and the 2021 recommendation from the Public Charter School Commission’s Director that “an additional 700 students each year should generate approximately 30 SUs” (support units). Idaho code 33-5208(1) caps the maximum growth for charter schools at 30 support units over the previous year’s support units. If student numbers fall such that the school may reach the statutory cap before the designated enrollment cap is reached, the school will be considered to have reached the 2022-2023 cap and will follow IDVA Board Policy 902.5. If student numbers fall such that the designated enrollment cap is reached, but the statutory support unit cap is not reached, the school will be considered to not have reached the 2022-2023 enrollment cap. Enrollment will continue, and the school will closely monitor support unit estimates based on enrollment distribution until the statutory cap is met. In this case, when the statutory cap is met, enrollment will be closed.
