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. Students will be pulled for such a lottery with the following priority:

Priority 1
Students living in North Renton Boundary with a sibling currently enrolled in Sartori who is in grade Kinder-Fourth

Priority 2
Students living in North Renton Boundary*
*Families must provide proof of residence by Friday, February 26th, 2021 at 4:00 PM, otherwise they will be moved to Priority Level 4

Priority 3
Students with a sibling currently enrolled in Sartori in grade Kinder-Fourth

Priority 4
