Lottery Process Overview
For Students Residing in the Renton School District*
*Please note: this application process is available only for students living in the Renton School District Boundaries.
Sartori Elementary School is Renton School District’s only option school. This means that it does not have an official boundary. Families who wish to have their student attend Sartori Elementary School must submit an application. For a given grade level, if there are more applications than openings, a lottery will take place to determine placement and a wait list.
The Sartori application period has closed for the 2023-24 school year.
Students living in the Renton School District Boundary and students whose parents/guardians are full-time employees of the Renton School District may apply for Sartori during the application period. Applications received after the due date at 4:00 PM will NOT be considered for the lottery process. Applications are not ranked based on the date they are received.
Families may apply on the Sartori Elementary website during the open application period. Please use the link under the Sartori Lottery Enrollment Application tab. Families must name each child they wish to enroll on their family application. For every student selected to enroll at Sartori, his/her family will be asked to complete the Renton School District registration process, which is a separate process from the lottery application process.
Automated emails confirming the receipt of applications will be sent via Google Forms to the email addresses provided by families (only if an email is not provided will families receive a phone call). If a family does not receive a confirmation of their application, they should first check filtered messages, then call 425-204-4501.
For families without internet access or an email account, please reach out by phone 425.204.4501 or come into the front office to set up an appointment to complete the application.
Applications received after the Open Enrollment Period Deadline at 4:00 PM will not be considered for the lottery.
