New Mexico, by statute, requires a charter school to employ a lottery selection process, if the total number of applicants exceeds the space available, 22-8B-4.1 NMSA (1978). A charter school will need to use a lottery selection process any time the total number of applicants exceeds the spaces available.

Lottery Process

Returning students and their siblings are given first priority in returning for the concurrent year. However, they still are required to submit a letter of intent to return. Meanwhile, all other students are encouraged and asked to submit a letter of interest beginning on March 9th. When all returning and sibling students are plugged into the available slots, a lottery will be held on May 14th by random draw to fill the remaining slots. As names are drawn, they will be placed on a list to determine the waitlist. Students who do not return their registration packets
