Phase I
Submit Application
(Due April 30, 2020)
After attending a parent information session, parents may submit a Magnet application to the school for which you are applying. Round Open applications open December 16, 2019.
Phase II
Begin Lottery Process
A computerized random selection process (lottery) is used when there are more students and families interested in a particular magnet program than there are slots available. Families will be notified in February 2020 if they are selected for their magnet program of choice.
Phase III
Parent/Guardian Notification and Acceptance
(May 2020)
Notification letters will be mailed to parents: If accepted into a magnet, parents must accept their child's slot by the deadline outlined in the notification letter. Students who do not receive a slot in their first-choice magnet will be placed on the waitlist for that magnet program. If a program is not at capacity after Round One, applications for those slots will be open in the spring for Round Two.
