Frederick Co. Ending Magnet Program For First, Second Grades

The Board of Education had no qualms Wednesday with a plan to phase out the first and second grades of the elementary magnet program over the next three years.

Frederick County Public Schools will begin phasing out the primary grade magnet classes beginning in the 2013-14 school year: Kindergarten students will not be screened to enter first-grade magnet classes. With no students then prepared to enter second-grade magnet classes in the 2014-15 school year, the second-grade magnet program will be eliminated.

No changes will be made to the magnet program for the 2012-13 school year, and no students already in the magnet program will be sent back to their home school, according to school officials.
