Families interested in a specialized program for the 2014-2015 school year will have an opportunity to learn about 50 schools with openings at the HISD School Choice Fair. The event will be held from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, April 26 at the Northwest Mall, 9500 Hempstead Highway.
“We received thousands of applications during our initial magnet and Vanguard application process,” said School Services Officer Dr. Lupita Hinojosa. “But there are many schools still actively seeking interested students, and we want families to take full advantage of the wonderful programs available to them.” Participating schools with available space include magnet programs in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), fine arts, environmental science, medical health science, and communications, among others. Dual-language programs at Emerson, Shearn, Burnet and Memorial elementary schools still have space available, and representatives will be on hand to answer all questions and accept enrollment applications.
Vanguard programs with availability for the 2014-2015 school year include Carrillo, DeZavala, and Windsor Village elementary schools. Middle schools include Black and Hamilton middle schools, and Long Middle School 6-12. Other available programs participating at the School Choice Fair are Futures Academies and Early Colleges with open enrollment for 2014-2015.
