Gifted/Classical Schools (Magnets?) – Round 2 is about to begin
Parents had to notify schools by last Friday, April 17 as to whether they would take a spot in the test/lottery programs.
So…. that means that today the GEAP office (gifted/classical) and Magnet and popular neighborhood schools can now start working their way down their lists.
Gifted and classical programs will work their way down the list of test scores (2 lists, one for caucasians and one for non-caucasians.) I’m sure now that gender isn’t accounted for – I saw the list of kids that got first offers for my son’s schools and of 28 kids there were only 9 boys.
The Magnet schools will start working their way down their waiting list.
In these cases, you will most likely get a call from GEAP or the school offering you a spot and you will have a few days to decide whether you want it or not. If not, they keep going down the list.
Post here if you here anything from a school so others will know that movement is happening. Good luck to everyone….
