Magnet Lottery Information Sessions Scheduled

October 10, 2019

Cincinnati Public Schools staff will host four information sessions in October around the district to give parents and guardians details about CPS' online application process for Magnet schools and programs.

Round 1 of CPS' Online Magnet Application Process, also known as the Magnet Lottery, opens at 8 a.m. Tuesday, October 29, 2019, and continues through 11:59 p.m. Friday, December 6, 2019. All applications are processed after Round 1 closes, and Magnet seats are awarded via random lottery. There's no need to be "first in line" when the lottery opens.

Applications submitted are for enrollment in Magnet schools and programs in the 2020-21 school year.
