November is open house season at magnet schools

If you’re thinking about sending your child to a magnet school in 2014-15, it’s time to start planning your open house visits.

Magnet schools typically hold parent tours in November. Some schools have application deadlines in December, so it’s important to start early and look into the admissions schedule of any school you’re considering. Early action is especially crucial for fine arts magnet schools that require an audition.

All the magnet schools I’ve found in my research are listed within the school system pages under the “Gifted Ed in Local Schools” heading. Some schools have posted their open house dates on their web sites, but many haven’t, so I suggest calling the school to ask.

    Does anyone know if you can enter the Kittredge lottery in Dekalb if your home school does not use traditional letter/number grades? The child would have the necessary ITBS scores but no GPA.

      I don’t know, Tess, but you can call Pat Copeland, director of school choice for the county. Her number is 678-676-0035. It’s good that you’re planning ahead on this. The wheels may turn slowly.
