    • Minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) in core subjects (Reading/Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies) 
    • Minimum Measurement of Academic Progress (MAP) or other norm-referenced test score minimum

    GPA ELIGIBILITY

    75% Grade point average in core subjects (Reading/Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies)

    STANDARDIZED TEST ELIGIBILITY

    Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, all State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) administrations scheduled for April, May, and June 2020 were canceled. In lieu of using STAAR scores as eligibility criteria for Magnet admission, Measurement of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments will be used as replacements for magnet eligibility.

    SELECTION PROCESS

    The number of seats available for each magnet program will be identified before the application process begins. Seats will be awarded based on the following formula:

    • 30% of the seats are awarded districtwide by rank-ordering of applicants based on overall criteria score without consideration of feeder pattern or sibling status 
    • 70% of the seats are awarded within the comprehensive high school feeder patterns (adjusted proportionally for student population) by rank-ordering of applicants based on overall criteria score.
