UPDATE: 12/23/2020

High School Magnet Assessment Guidelines have now been posted and parents have been notified by email.

All guidelines can be found here: Magnet Assessment Update 

UPDATE: 12/22/2020

BCPS magnet assessments for high school magnet programs will continue to be implemented virtually. The assessment window needs to be adjusted due to the ransomware attack. The assessment window will be shifted from January 2021 to February 2021. This will also delay parent notification of magnet admission decisions from March 5, 2021 to April 5, 2021. By end of day Wednesday, Dec. 23, 2020, BCPS will post the requirements on the BCPS Magnet Programs Website so students and families may review the assessment criteria in advance. The new assessment dates and submission deadlines will be posted to the Magnet Programs Website in early January, 2021.

UPDATE: Magnet Assessments

Due to the ransomware attack, the release of the high school magnet assessment guidelines has been delayed, which may require the postponement of the magnet assessments.
Students will not be required to schedule assessments by Dec. 11, as was previously stated in the magnet brochure.
Additional information will be forthcoming.
