    **Please note: 

    If your child is currently enrolled in a magnet program, you do NOT need to reapply.

    ***Please note:

    School buses are assigned to transport students to and from magnet programs. However, due to the current bus driver shortage, the district unfortunately cannot guarantee that a bus will be available or on time each morning and each afternoon on every route. We ask that you consider this information as you complete a magnet program application.

    Special consideration will be given to the transportation of students at the Professional Academies Magnet (PAM) @ Loften High School, which is entirely a school of choice and has no attendance zone.
