SLPS Magnet and Choice Schools Applications for the 2015-16 school year will be available beginning October 1, 2014.

The application period for the Pool B Placement Lottery has passed. 

Please consider applying now for your student to be considered for placement on a first come first served basis. If your child is already accepted for a school requested you must decline the seat offered using your child's online application dashboard or in writing (an email to slpsmagnetschools@slps.org works) to be considered for placement into another school. All Pool A applicants will be considered for placement to the school(s) and grade applied for, prior to any Pool B applicants being placed. All Pool B applicants will be considered for placement to the School(s) and grade applied for, prior to any post-lottery first come first served applicants submitting requests. Paper applications submitted for students accepted to a school requested will not be processed without written decline of the seat offered being provided. Any paper application submitted will override any previous application (online or paper) which resulted in wait list placement.

Please do not submit a request for placement to a school you are not willing to have your child attend. Any child accepted to a school will not be considered for placement to other choices or remain on the waiting list for other choices requested. This includes students accepted to a second choice request. Any student accepted to a requested second choice will no longer be considered for placement, nor remain on the waiting list for the first choice requested.
