Lottery Management Features

Student assignment. Ranking. Scoring. Placement. No matter what you call it, SchoolMint’s Lottery Management makes it easy to design, build, and run your student lotteries.

Lottery dashboards

Customize and configure lotteries to match your placement policies. Run multiple lotteries by school or grade. Set priorities, weights, quotas, timelines, and seat availability. Update as needed and run practices to ensure you’re prepared for the big day!

Set your rules and priorities and run fair, equitable lotteries with SchoolMint’s secure algorithm.  And in case you ever need it, a complete and transparent audit trail is autogenerated.

Automatically assign open seats and waitlist positions. Dynamically update waitlists.  Generate a single best offer across multiple lotteries.

Manage applicant eligibility and notify them with a click of a button. Families can accept or decline an offer instantly from their computers or mobile devices.

A secure parent portal makes it easy to reach and engage with families. Parents can set notification preferences, view waitlist position(s), and manage offers for all of their kiddos, all from their mobile device.
