Apply Now

Thank you for your interest in the East Career and Technical Academy. Applications are available now through the magnet.ccsd.net website click on Apply Now.  Applications are due by 3:00 PM on January 8, 2019.

 

Applicants may choose up to a maximum of three (3) Magnet/CTA programs and place them in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd choice order of preference.  Students are advised to consider their interests and abilities, look up information about the programs and schools, and check transportation eligibility when considering applying to magnet programs.  In addition, there are costs/fees associated with East Tech programs, please visit the individual program pages located under the Academics Menu for more information regarding specifics about each program.  

 

The benefits of applying online: applicants will receive an email confirmation after creating an account and applying for programs, make changes to the application before the deadline, and if accepted to a program, may accept the seat online instead of by mail.  If a paper application is completed, applicants will need to drop off or mail the application to his/her first choice school.

 

If the applicant attends a charter, private, home/online school or an out-of-district school, he/she must provide a copy of his/her first semester/trimester report card to the first choice school before the 3:00 PM, January 8, 2019, deadline. The application is considered incomplete if the report card is not received by the school by the deadline and as a result, the student will not be considered for the lottery.  Qualification is based on 1st-semester grades, citizenship/conduct, and attendance.  Current 8th-grade CCSD students do not need to provide their report card.  Teacher recommendations and essays are not required or accepted.

 

Please note, not all schools provide transportation to their schools.  It is critical that applicants check the transportation boundary for East Tech before they submit an application as we provide limited transportation. Transportation information is located at http://transportation.ccsd.net and https://magnet.ccsd.net/transportation.   If the applicant lives outside of the transportation boundary and is selected, he/she must provide his/her own transportation.

 

After a computerized, random lottery is conducted by the CCSD Magnet Department, students are notified by mail and email of their admittance the week of February 20, 2019. This information will also be available online in the applicant's dashboard in his/her magnet account. Please contact the applicant's first choice school if a notification has not been received by March 1, 2019.

Important information after the lottery:

 

  • Lottery outcomes:
  • Not qualified (Student did not qualify to go through the lottery process)
  • Selected (Student was selected and must now decide if he/she wishes to accept the seat)
  • Alternate pool (Student qualified and is now waiting for a vacancy as other students are going through the acceptance process and seats become available)

 

As a reminder, the following criteria are considered when qualifying applicants for the lottery process:

Academics

Citizenship/conduct in classes

Attendance

 

If selected, students must submit their acceptance letter to the school in which they are accepting the seat or accept the seat through the magnet application account.  Acceptances must be submitted by 3:00 pm on March 7, 2019.  Please consider that by accepting the seat, the student is committing to enrollment for at least ONE year and will abide by the expectations specified in the CCSD Magnet Contract.  Once the seat has been accepted, students cannot accept a seat at any other campus or for any other program.  Students may not change their programs at any time.  Students will remain in the program they selected for the remainder of the time they are a student at East Tech.  It is important that students apply only to programs they are interested in as they may be selected into any of the three for which they applied.  In addition, please verify transportation before accepting the seat, especially if the applicant resides outside of the transportation zone and needs bus transportation.

 

If placed in the alternate pool, students will be notified by phone and email as vacancies occur through a computerized, random selection process prior to the end of the first week of each school year.

 

If seats are available after the initial lottery and after the alternate pool has been exhausted, there is a process for late applications.  Applications received after the 3:00 PM January 8th deadline, will not be considered for the initial lottery but will remain on file for future vacancies through the late application/lottery process.

 

  • Information for late applications will be available at a later date.

 

Process for late applications:
