The MNPS Magnet School applications
for the lottery are due to be turned in no later than, Friday, December 3, 2010. If your child is admitted to a magnet school, there is no transportation provided. You will be responsible for getting your child to school and home.
Below are some helpful tips which MNPS has issued:
Turn in your Application Early. You may wait minutes now, as opposed to an hour or more on the last few days before the Friday, Dec. 3, 5:30 p.m. deadline.
MNPS will be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday, Thursday, Nov. 25, 2010 and Friday, Nov. 26, 2010. No applications can be received these days.
Print Clearly. MNPS will return applications with unreadable writing to the applicant.
If mailing your application, send it Return Receipt Mail. MNPS does not issue receipts for applications received by mail. To obtain verification that your application has been received, send it using US Postal Return Receipt Mail.
Investigate each school to find the best fit for your child. Magnet and lottery schools offer various academic programs. Check out the school's profile and website, or check out the Magnet and Specialty School section on the district website for the magnet/lottery school list and contact information.
Be aware of new schools added to lottery selections. There have been some new schools added to the Lottery School application for the 2011-2012 school year. Hillsboro High School has been added as a lottery school selection. In addition, several specialty schools -- Big Picture, Middle College and Diploma Plus -- are now included on the Magnet/Specialty school application.
To date, nearly 3,500 applications have been received. The district anticipates between 13,000-14,000 applications. Families are urged to submit applications soon to avoid long lines. For more details about the Magnet/Lottery school application, you can visit the Magnet & Specialty Schools page, or view Lottery Application Procedures.
