FNSBSD Online Enrollment Lottery System

  • The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District uses an online lottery system to collect, verify, and process applications for non-charter elementary school enrollment lotteries, the Hutchison High School enrollment lottery, and also for select special programs.

    Parents can create an online lottery account at any time by visiting the district's online lottery application portal. Application submission is limited by lottery availability. 

    Only one application per student will be honored for any school or program. Duplicate applications (same student and school or program) will be deleted from the lottery system.

    Applications must be completed by a parent or guardian with custodial authority to make educational decisions for the student. Parents/guardians are responsible for providing a correct and complete application.
