Updated Guidelines for Specialty Programs, Spring 2020
Due to the extended school closure mandated by Governor Northam, the Specialty Program Committee has reviewed the application process and the following adjustments have been made:
· There will be no program testing;
· There will be no interviews; and
· There will be no portfolio reviews or auditions.
Each student’s application will be evaluated by using the established district rubric which includes reviewing the application information and the student’s record.
For the lottery schools: The lotteries for Academy for Discovery, Southside Stem, Ghent, and Academy of International Studies will be conducted the week of April 6, 2020.
For all programs: Students will be notified of their status for the 2020-21 school year in a mailing scheduled to be sent out on April 27, 2020.
