Nearly a month after originally scheduled, Wake County families can now find out today if they've been accepted into a magnet school or calendar application school for this fall.
Click here for the online link to check application results. You'll need the confirmation number you received when you registered. If you've lost it, contact Growth and Planning at 850-1921 or the Magnet Resource Center at 501-7900.
Families have until next Friday, April 23, to decide whether to accept the new assignment. Families are being asked to decline on the web site.
The original notification date was March 18. But it was pushed back twice because of assignmetn changes and calendar conversions made by the school board.
Also starting Monday, parents can check with their child's year-round school about track assignments for the upcoming school year. In a year where some families were involuntarily moved to other tracks because of budget and class size issues, Wake says "principals will be working to better align family preferences and needs with track assignments to provide more stability for families and to avoid further track changes."
Just to be clear, Wake assumes you're accepting the magnet/calendar seat unless you decline online by next Friday.
