Applications for IDEA Travis in Midland will open via Apply Midland. The Baton Rouge application will open on October 1 and lottery selections will take place on January 6, 2024. Communications will be provided to families when applications go live. 


Our lottery schedule for each region will be announced soon! Our lottery helps determine which students will fill spots available at each IDEA school. If randomly selected, you will be notified and invited to attend a “Welcome to IDEA” event where we celebrate your acceptance and orient you to IDEA’s culture, curriculum, and expectations. You will also attend testing and registration events to officially enroll at IDEA Public Schools.  

Students who are not randomly selected to attend IDEA will be placed on a wait list, and the order of the wait list will be randomly determined. The applications of students on the wait list will remain on file for the remainder of the 2024-2025 school year. If a spot becomes available, students will be selected from the wait list, and parents will be notified of their selection and informed of next steps.
