Students apply for placement in a magnet program. All students who apply for a magnet program must meet any entrance requirements that exist for the school or magnet program and agree to fulfill program requirements to remain enrolled in the magnet program.
Families who are happy with their listed placement do not need to apply.
For the 2013-2014 school year, CMS will offer nine magnet programs at 37 schools.
Magnet themes include International Baccalaureate; Military and Global Leadership; Leadership and Global Studies; Montessori; Learning Immersion/Talent Development; Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM); Traditional; Visual and Performing Arts and World Languages.
All CMS students are taught the North Carolina Standard Course of Study.
The first magnet-lottery application period began Jan. 12.
Lottery assignment notifications letters will be sent to families at the end of February. The letters give assignments through the lottery process and provide information on how to ask for reassignment.
Students new to CMS in the 2013-2014 school year must have enrolled in the system by Dec. 7 to be eligible for the first magnet lottery. Students who enrolled after Dec. 7 will be eligible for the second magnet lottery, which runs from March 13 to May 3.
Parents who have questions about the magnet student-assignment lottery should call the Student Placement Office at 980-343-5335.
