    Magnet Lottery results were mailed on Friday, April 13th.  If a parent does not receive a letter by Friday, April 20th we will be happy to assist if you email us at after April 20th.  Our staff will be able to provide you with the results over the phone and through the email address.  The letters were mailed to the addresses listed in the students' Focus demographic information section.  Parents may want to check with their child's school to see if the correct address is in the computer to avoid any further mail delivery issues.  Thank you for your patience.


    Duval County Public Schools is pleased to share with you our School Choice Website. This site is designed to give families an overview of the many types of school choice options that are available for school-age children in Jacksonville. In it, you will find information about specific programs including magnet programs, career academies, high school acceleration programs, choice programs and charter schools.

    Located in 64 different schools, our nationally recognized magnet programs are the centerpiece of our school choice options. These magnet programs focus on a theme and give students an opportunity to explore an interest or talent. This Website provides very specific information about how to apply for these programs and how to have the best chance of being selected.
