Siblings will be given priority if the application is received during the application period, there is a sibling currently enrolled in the magnet program of your choice that will be returning for 2013-2014, AND there is space available to accept magnet students for that particular grade level. The applications of multiple birth siblings (i.e. twins, triplets, etc.) will be considered as one application. For example, if one twin is accepted, both will be accepted.
Only one (1) application may be submitted for each student. The parent/legal guardian may designate a first, second or third choice.
