Application Process

 

The Office of Magnet Programs will conduct at least one official magnet application period annually. To begin the online application process, visit www.ebrmagnet.org. Parents must complete the application process within three (3) calendar days after beginning the online application process and submit a signed signature page to the first choice school within seven (7) days of submission. All applicants must provide two (2) valid proofs of residency to complete the process.

Applicants who select a school as a second choice will be contacted by the Magnet Office only if a seat becomes available. When the applicant accepts the second-choice seat, the parent and student must sign a form relinquishing their rights to a seat at their first choice school, even if a seat becomes available.

 

Request for changes to an application must be presented in writing to the Magnet Office before the application period ends. Changes to an application cannot be made after the selection process has been completed for any program.

 

If a student is not eligible to attend a magnet program based on documents submitted during the application period, schools will notify parents by mail. An applicant who is not academically eligible during the first application period may apply during a second application period, if he or she becomes eligible.

 

However, a second application may NOT be submitted by an applicant whose name is in the waiting pool for the current academic school year.

 

Students who are not selected are maintained in a waiting pool, which expires ten (10) calendar days after the first day of the school year.

 

In order to be considered for the next academic school year, applicants who are not selected for a seat must reapply during the new application period.
