EST Registration

 Information regarding EST 18-19 Registration

What exactly is registration, hasn't my student already applied and been accepted?
Applying for the magnet via OCPS School Choice is just the first step. Parents must REGISTER at the school where their student has been accepted if they decide to proceed with the magnet school process.  There are THREE categories of students and every student accepted must be registered. 

The deadline to register is MARCH 16, 2018
