Update on Magnet/Choice School Enrollment for 2021-22

For Schools, News
Polk County Public schools news release graphic.

PCPS is currently processing a second application lottery for seats still available in our magnet and choice schools.

We will begin sending invitations today (Monday, April 19). Parents will receive notification emails, and they can also check Parent Portal.

If your child is selected and you do not respond, your child will be removed from the acceptance list, as well as all other options for which you applied.

The deadline to accept or decline and confirm residence is 4 p.m. on April 30, 2021.

Please note this update applies to families applying to PCPS magnet/choice schools (polkschoolsfl.com/magnetchoice) for the 2021-22 school year. The original application window for magnet/choice schools ended on Jan. 12.

This update should not be confused with controlled open enrollment (polkschoolsfl.com/transfer), a separate, statewide program in which families can apply for any school that still has open seats.

If you have questions related to magnet/choice programs, please call (863) 534-0631 ext. 788.
