Giving Students a Choice:
Orange County and Orlando public school students must submit an application to be considered for placement into a magnet program.
Applying to a Magnet Program:
Students applying to the magnet program must reside in Orange County at the time their application is submitted. Each student can submit only one application, and changes are not allowed once the application has been submitted.
Applications should be filled out and submitted online through the School Choice website. Once this occurs, a confirmation number is given out and applicants can check their status by visiting the website http://schoolchoicemagnet.ocps.net/mymagnetstatus.aspx and entering their ID number and confirmation number.
Each applicant can select a maximum of three choices, and each child must submit a separate application. Program selections are ranked first through third, based on preference.
A violation of contract will result in a meeting between the parents, student, teachers and magnet program coordinator. Students will then be placed on probation for a period of one grading term. If the violation is corrected during the probationary period, the student will return to normal status. If insufficient improvement occurs during the probationary period, the student will be removed from the program.
Students exiting the magnet program for any reason are required to return to their zoned school at the completion of the first semester or at the end of the current school year, whichever comes first.
