If you have already created a parent account from a previous school year application submission, please use that account information to login and submit an application for your child to be considered for placement in the 2018-19 school year.

Be sure to login in with the same exact email used in the first/previous account established to submit your child's application(s) and used by the automated email feature to communicate the status of your application(s). If you create a new or additional parent account and attempt to apply for a student that is already listed within a previously created parent account, the system will not let you proceed with submitting a new application. You will receive a message telling you that the student already exists within the system.

Again for the 2018-19 School Year, parents may submit placement requests/apply for their child to be considered for both Gifted Education Program schools and General Education Program Schools simultaneously. This consideration is offered to allow children awaiting testing for Gifted Education Program Schools to also be considered for placement into General Education Program Schools if the student does not test eligible for SLPS Gifted Education Programs after the lottery has been run.

If the situation occurs where a student is determined eligible for SLPS Gifted Education Programs and is accepted to both Gifted and General Education Program Schools requested via submitted applications, the parent will be asked to choose which school they desire for the child to attend and this decision is final. A student cannot hold seats to two different SLPS Magnet Schools at one time. The offered seat that is declined will no longer be available for the child after the choice of the two schools is selected by the parent/guardian of the student.
