Applications for magnet programs due April 21
Applications for next year's Washington County Public Schools Magnet Programs at Emma K. Doub School for Integrated Arts and Technology and Fountaindale School for Arts and Academic Excellence still are being accepted.
Both advanced programs offer enriched and accelerated learning experiences for students in grades two through five who demonstrate high academic potential, strong motivation and work ethic, creativity and leadership ability.
All applications must be completed and returned to the Office of Funded and Special Programs by Wednesday, April 21. Applications are available in each elementary school office and at the Office of Funded and Special Programs at the School Board.
The application process includes several activities geared to learning about a child's talents and strengths. Parents complete a questionnaire about their child's interests. Magnet program staff interviews each child, reviews teacher recommendations and assesses current academic performance.
