Magnet programs are theme-related curricula and instructional programs that are not available as comprehensive school program options; serve as incubators for innovative instructional practices; draw students across student attendance boundaries, in accordance with state-rated capacity; and are accessed through a centralized application and admissions process.
Magnet programs will assist students in becoming globally competitive citizens by providing unique educational choice options aligned with students’ interests, talents, and abilities.
Magnet programs will enhance students’ educational experiences and academic performance by providing unique learning environments, innovative instructional programs, and specialized programs of study and/or experiences that extend and enrich the existing BCPS curricula, promote student diversity*, and align with evolving community and industry/business needs.
* As defined by the Board, diversity includes racial, ethnic, economic, gender, and special needs populations.
