I've been writing a lot about Wake County Public School deadlines and application periods because it's the largest system around here (largest in the state, in fact), but I wanted to be sure to share details about Durham Public Schools.
The online application period for its magnet schools starts Monday, Jan. 11, and runs until Jan. 29. If your child is a rising preschooler or kindergartner or is not currently enrolled in Durham Public Schools, you'll need to head over to your base school to register your child there before you can apply for your magnet options. You can register your child now.
Durham Public School's website has much more information. It also lists school tours at elementary, middle and high schools.
