The deadline for applications to attend Washington County Public Schools Gifted and Talented magnet programs has been extended to Monday, according to a school system press release.

Interviews and assessments of applicants to either the Fountaindale School for the Arts and Academic Excellence or Emma K. Doub School for the Integrated Arts and Technology tentatively have been scheduled for July 1 and 2, according to the release.

Parents will be told whether or not their child is accepted into the program in mid-July, according to the release.

Students will qualify for admission based on standardized math and reading test scores, Raven test scores and ratings on interviews and creative tasks to be performed at that time. The student interviews will be conducted by the teacher of the grade to which their parents apply, Roger Giles, the school system's director of funded and special programs, has said.

Applications are available at the Office of Funded and Special Programs at the Washington County Board of Education central office and at Emma K. Doub, Fountaindale and Funkstown elementary schools.
