More calls going out……
Reports are coming in of families being contacted for spots in magnet schools this month. There is a perception (not sure if true or not – may vary by school) that the schools tend to sit on things during the summer and break out the list around this time a year.
A reader here just got a spot after being #14 on the Lottery list and I’ve seen reports on NPN of others saying similar things.
If there’s a certain school you really want, now is probably the time to call to give a friendly (and enthusiastic) check-in. I’m sure with the current investigative climate going on the top magnet schools may be sticking to the lottery numbers this Fall, but when it comes down to it, one never really knows what goes on in those school offices. (Cue dramatic music.)
If you do get called, make sure to let your neighborhood school (or wherever you’re leaving) know so they can account for the lower number and hopefully open a spot for another child. Each change can set off a whole chain reaction of movement.
