Some people are unhappy that they'll have to wait again to find out if they've been accepted into a Wake County magnet school or calendar-application school for this fall.
The new notification deadline is April 16, nearly a month after the originally scheduled notification date and more than a week after the latest planned release date. Parents were supposed to have been notified online today but the date was pushed back because of the assignment changes made Tuesday.
According to the district's press release, staff needs the additional time "to begin implementing the changes made by the (school) board and will then be able to run magnet/calendar selection."
The original notification was supposed to be March 18. But it was pushed back to today because of the calendar conversions made last month by the board.
There's considerable interest because there were 7,670 magnet applicants, 2,850 year-round applicants and 1,776 traditional-calendar applicants this year.
