Application Differences between Expanded Choice and Magnet Programs…

There are differences in the application process for Expanded Choice and Magnet Programs. The differences are based on the selection process - Magnets offer a limited number of seats per grade level while Expanded Choice schools do not select by grade level.

If you accepted a seat in an Expanded Choice Program, you can apply for another choice option in Choice 2.

If you accepted a seat in a Magnet Program during Choice 1, you are ineligible to apply for other Choice options in Choice 2.

If you applied to Magnet Programs in Choice 1, but were not selected, you do not need to re-apply in Choice 2 for the same programs. Your Choice 1 applications remain in the waiting pool.

If you applied to Magnet Programs in Choice 1, but were not selected or declined a seat, you can apply to different magnet programs during Choice 2. However, applying for different programs during Choice 2 will take you out of the waiting pools for your Choice 1 selections. Duplicate applications may result in a delay or even nonselection to programs.
