RALEIGH, N.C. — Wake County parents who want their children to go to magnet schools will face a new assignment this year. They must fill out their application online.

Parents can apply to the magnet program starting today. The last day to apply is Feb. 28.

Families with students assigned to year-round calendar schools may apply for the traditional calendar and vice-versa.

Families with rising 6th graders or rising 9th graders need to reapply for magnet schools, but they do get priority.

Parents should hear back from the school district on the status of their application by March 15.
