A process change will help ensure board policy is followed and the Dallas ISD magnet school admission process prioritizes students who live in the area the district serves.
Starting this school year, the district’s central office will flag magnet school applicants who:
- Did not previously attend a district school
- Had a change-of-address form submitted this school year
Families with flagged applications can then provide additional documents to confirm their residency and gain full entry into a magnet school. Home visits will be hosted as necessary for students who cannot substantiate their address.
