Figures given for Jamerson magnet requests
Last year the Center for Mathematics and Engineering at Douglas L. Jamerson Elementary drew 130 applications from students who ranked the school as their first choice. The St. Petersburg magnet school invited 101 of those students into its program and there were 26 students on the waiting list. Because of an omission by the Pinellas County School District, Jamerson did not appear in a St. Pete Times chart last week showing 2012-13 application figures for magnet, fundamental and career programs. Jamerson is one of numerous schools highlighted in School Search, a special section published today.
