STEM Magnet School News
Looks like there is some news about the new elementary magnet school that will be opening this Fall.
Information from reader Maureen:
I went to the STEM Magnet Academy Community Meeting tonight. Here are the highlights:
Applications Due by 4/15
Lottery Results will be made public around the 1st Week of May
Lottery will be conducted the standard magnet fashion (40% proximity/60% from Tiers)
School will accept K-3rd grade for first year
Will likely be 2 classrooms per grade
Kindergarten will likely be full day
Will have World Language option, language not yet selected
No principal selected yet
No curriculum set yet, but will likely closely follow the national STEM standards
The CPS rep at the meeting was Margo De Lay and she can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
The attendance at the meeting was about 25 people and very diverse. Good group of parents with great questions. Most seemed to be parents of Kindergarten students, so those looking for slots for upper grades may have good chance.
