• Each program has its own application process. Please refer to the Magnet program pages below for specifics.

    A student’s participation in a magnet program is a privilege. The authorization to remain in a program, once accepted, requires strict adherence to the Student Code of Conduct. Acceptance in a magnet program equates to a zoning exception to participate in that program, even if the student is zoned to attend that school by address. The principal reserves the right to revoke a student’s participation in a magnet program and return the student to their zoned school (or in that school’s general program if the student is zoned to attend that school by their address) upon violations that meet the language in the Student Code of Conduct and/or the Board Policy 5120.04 that may result in revocation.

    Each magnet/academy may have additional requirements to remain in good standing and remain in the program. These requirements may include but are not limited to a "Fair Share" amount, participation in a student organization, and specific academic and/or behavior requirements.
    If any events occur following application, seat offering and/or acceptance to attend a magnet program that would have made the student ineligible, the opportunity to participate may be revoked, even if the seat has already been accepted.
