Magnet supply and demand

Pinellas County's magnet and fundamental schools draw far more applications than the number of spots available. In an effort to promote diversity and comply with a federal court order to desegregate schools, black students have their own application and selection lottery. The numbers below do not include applications from or spots reserved for siblings of magnet and fundamental students.
