Frequently Asked Questions

How are students selected for a Magnet program?

Some of the programs will have a limit on the number of students who will be enrolled as freshmen. If the number of applicants exceeds the number of spaces available in the program, a lottery will be held to determine acceptance.

Can I submit more than one application?

No, only one application will be accepted.

What does I.E.P. stand for on the application?

IEP stands for Individualized Education Plan. These are for students with Special Education assistance. We need to make sure that their IEP's follow them to the Magnet school site.

What does E.L.L. stand for on the application?

ELL stands for English Language Learner. These are students who have a primary language other than English. We need to make sure that parent materials are prepared in the home language.

What if a student changes his/her mind and wants to withdraw and return to his/her 'home' school?

Students can change their minds and attend their home school (determined by school boundaries) before the school year begins. After school begins, students may only withdraw at the end of the semester. Applications to withdraw must be submitted and approved by Career Services.

Are there prerequisites for each program?

There are no prerequisites. However, parents and students need to read about each program and talk to the school coordinator to get answers to specific questions about each program.

Can students attend a Magnet program at their home school?

Yes! Students can enroll in their home school Magnet program by signing up at the counseling office at the home school. Do not send an application to the District Office. Applications sent to the District Office are only for students transferring from their home school to another school.

Will a brother or sister of a student already enrolled in a Magnet program be given priority consideration for acceptance in the same program?

In high impacted programs or schools, all applicants who apply by the deadline are given an equal opportunity to enroll.

Can a student transfer from a Magnet program at one school to a Magnet program at a different school?

Students must stay at the enrolled Magnet school or request to return to their home school (determined by school boundaries).

Can a student take the Magnet classes at one school and then spend the rest of the day at their home school?

No! The Magnet school becomes the student's school. All classes will be taken at the Magnet school.

Is transportation available?

No, transportation is not available.

When will I learn if my son/daughter is enrolled into a Magnet program?

Notification letters will be mailed the first week of March to let you know if your son/daughter has been accepted. If accepted, you must return the acceptance letter to the District Office no later than March 18th.

SAFETY: Dropping and Picking Up Children

Please do not drop off or pick up your child in the school parking lot.  Students walk across the parking lot making it unsafe for them- there is no other way for them to get into the school.  You can use both sides of the street as there are lights for crossing Piedmont Road. 

Please be careful and courteous to other drivers for the situation is frustrating for everyone.

Some exceptions are:  A few parents have meetings, children with injuries or large instruments for music.

Students who are dropped off or picked up in the parking lot between the hours of 7AM-4PM will be assigned clean-up duty!
