Thanks Magnet Mom. i actually called the 2 elementry schools left that were on a multitrack year (Del Olmo and Cahuega). Both said that they were told that they would be going single track in 2013. I'm thinking that those points will be gone. 80747
If Community Magnet has kindergarten, it will be a smaller amount to get in for kinder and first grade, because kindergarteners can only accrue so many points.
There are still apparently a few schools considered overcrowded because they're still on a specific year round calendar. That's 4.
They could be slated to come from a predominantly Hispanic, Black, Asian or Other school (PHBAO) and that would be 4 points.
And some children will have an older sibling already attending. That will be another 3.
So 11 is the most a kinder could have. Reality is that so few schools have the overcrowded problem, that virtually no one gets those points, so 7 would be the highest. And if there are no siblings, the next highest point count would be 4. And the reality is that many schools in the area of Community Magnet aren't PHBAO. So it's conceivable that they get down to zero from the wait list.
Definitely go ahead and apply if your son is going into kinder--and have a back up plan.80746
It depends on the school population. In many cases, being white helps. The district is something like 87% Hispanic. And the magnet ratios are either 40-60 white to minority or 30-70 white to minority. In some cases the admission point count is lower for white applicants.78665
I emailed Community Magnet Charter School a couple of years before and the magnet coordinator said it usually 4-8 points minimum based on sliding scales and grade level. I think it will be hard for kid to get in at kinder unless they have sibling etc. My daughter is also on waitlist at this school.78602
