I'm working in mvc 5 entity framework SO im having 3 filters in index view with foreach loop getting items from database and displaying through viewbags to checkbox. After selecting check box and submitting i couldn't keep the selected items still selected. Any help here..!

What I have tried:

index view code
 @foreach (var item in ViewBag.Courses){
 <input type="checkbox" id="check1" name="Course" value="@item" data-myvalue = "@ViewBag.Courses" />
<label style="font-weight:normal" for="course">  @item</label>}


@foreach (var item in ViewBag.Gender)
{ <input type="checkbox" id="check2" name="Gender" value="@item" data-myvalue = "@ViewBag.Gender" />
<label style="font-weight:normal" for="Gender">@item</label>

   @foreach (var item in ViewBag.Levels)
{<input type="checkbox" id="check3" name="Level" value="@item" data-myvalue = "@ViewBag.Levels" />
<label style="font-weight:normal" for="Level">@item</label>

 <input id="postBtn" type="submit" value="Submit" class="button button2">

    $('#postBtn').on('click', function () {

        var checkbox = document.getElementById("#check1");
        localStorage.setItem("#check1", checkbox.checked);
        var checkbox = document.getElementById("#check2");
        localStorage.setItem("#check2", checkbox.checked);
        var checkbox = document.getElementById("#check3");
        localStorage.setItem("#check3", checkbox.checked);



    var checked = JSON.parse(localStorage.getItem("#check1"));
    document.getElementById("#check1").checked = checked;


public ActionResult CheckBox(string[] Course, int? page, string[] Gender, string[] Level,string searchString)
            var students = from s in cd.tblStudents
                           select s;
            if (Course != null)

                students = students.Where(x => Course.Contains(x.Course));
            if (Gender != null)
                students = students.Where(x => Gender.Contains(x.Gender));
            if (Level != null)
                students = students.Where(x => Level.Contains(x.Level));
            if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(searchString))
                students = students.Where(x => x.FirstName.StartsWith(searchString));

            ViewBag.Courses = students.Select(x => x.Course).Distinct();

            ViewBag.Gender = students.Select(g => g.Gender).Distinct();

            ViewBag.Levels = students.Select(g => g.Level).Distinct();
            return View("index", students.ToList().ToPagedList(page ?? 1, 8));

so as my viewbag is getting distinct iteself after submit filter i cant insert those into localstorage

so how can i get my selected checkbox persistent/keeping checked after submit
