Magnet Fair on Saturday, Dec. 4

Parents and students are encouraged to attend the district’s Magnet Fair on Saturday, Dec. 4 from 8:30 a.m. to noon at Skyline High School, 7777 Forney Road to receive information regarding the application process, the general program requirements, the timeline for the selection process and a schedule of each magnet school’s open house. 

Beginning Dec. 6, the magnet school application for the 2011-2012 school year will be available at www.dallasisd.org/parents/magnet. 

On last Thursday, November18, 2010, Dallas ISD Trustees adopted an updated Magnet policy EGA (Local).  The vote was 8-1.  

I voted against the revised policy due to concerns about equity and fairness for all students.
