  • Do I have sibling preference?

    Posted by:

    Sibling preference is for a student who has a sibling residing at the same address who attends a magnet program at the same school and is eligible to return next year.  Siblings applying for the first time are not eligible to receive sibling preference.  Siblings are defined as brother, sister, step-brother, step-sister, half-brother, half-sister living at the same address.

  • Do I have to get the principal's signature?

    Posted by:

    No, it is not required, but it does give your student a priority in the magnet lottery. The priority applies to students whose parents attend a tour or open house at the magnet school they are applying for and have the principal’s signature indicating attendance.  Schools will enter tour/open house attendance electronically through FOCUS.
