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.


    There are no lotteries currently accepting applications.

      • Late Applications: The K-8 Options lotteries will reopen for waitlisting on 4-3-2019. Late applications will be added to the waitlist in the order in which they are received.


    Elementary Out of Attendance Area (OAA) Lotteries for schools that do not rely on lottery-based enrollment will open on April 3, 2019. Lottery applications for OAA admission will be accepted until 3 p.m. on Friday, May 17, 2019. The OAA lotteries will run in late May and the waitlist results will be posted to guardian lottery accounts after that time. There are no "open" seats in the OAA lotteries. Elementary principals will make seating availability determinations during the first 10 (ten) days of school. The OAA late application period will open on August 8, 2019. Late applications will be added to the bottom of the waitlist in the order in which they are received.
