Acceptance period for magnets to start in Pinellas



Here's an important reminder for families:

If you applied for a seat in a magnet or fundamental program in Pinellas County Schools, the acceptance period begins Wednesday. Every year, some parents lose a spot in a program because they don't go back into the online system and accept the invitation. Don't let this happen to you. The application period runs until Feb. 10.

You can find helpful information about the programs and the application and acceptance process here.

If you're on the waiting list for your first choice program, don't despair. Give the school a call and find out how many students they typically accept off the list each year and then weigh your decision. 

Good luck, families!
