HAYDEN — The Hayden Canyon Charter School Board has announced that the application process for the 2021 lottery is now open.

HCC has brought the expeditionary learning model developed by EL Education to the youth of North Idaho. It's designed to prepare youth — through hands-on learning, in critical thinking and character development — to blaze new trails and solve real-world problems. The curriculum, instruction and assessment is designed around project-based themes and hands-on applied learning that encompasses all subject areas throughout the day. Students explore this applied learning approach, aligned with the highest academic standards, through outdoor field experiences, artistic discovery, scientific investigation, maker-space and innovative process improvement. Applied learning experiences will incorporate design processes and peer collaboration.

HCC is a local educational nonprofit with the mission to achieve breakthroughs in academic excellence and character development by inspiring passion for inquiry and lifelong learning, utilizing hands-on discovery, real-world application, collaboration and community while preparing each student for engagement in productive, thoughtful citizenship. HCC will begin its second school year in its permanent location at 13590 N. Government Way, Hayden, in September 2021.

Visit www.haydencanyoncharter.org for online applications or send requests to 13590 N. Government Way, Hayden, ID 83835 for paper applications.

The application deadline is 5 p.m. March 5. Applications must be received by this deadline to be entered into the lottery process.

The lottery date is March 8. Notification of enrollment will begin on or before March 10.

The HCC board reserves the option to extend the enrollment period, or have a second-chance lottery, if target enrollment is not met during the initial lottery process. All prospective students will be given the opportunity to enroll in the public charter school regardless of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, gender, social or economic status or special needs.

The primary attendance area for HCC will include portions of the Lakeland Joint and Coeur d'Alene school districts. It encompasses existing and proposed neighborhoods in the area.

The primary attendance zone will commence at the intersection of Boekel and Atlas roads, continuing south to Atlas Road and Honeysuckle Avenue and following the shoreline of Hayden Lake to a point south of the intersection of East English Point Road and North Meadow Wood Lane. From there, the attendance zone continues north to a point at the center of East Dodd Road, then east along the center of Boekel Road to the point of origin.
