13 Nov CCSD Choice Applications for Magnet and Change of School Assignment now open

The Clark County School District (CCSD) is now accepting applications for students interested in attending one of the District’s many choice offerings including the award-winning Magnet schools, new Central Technical Training Academy, and Change of School Assignment (COSA) options for the 2023-24 school year. The application window will remain open until January 10, 2023.

Magnet Schools 

CCSD magnet programs offer learning opportunities related to various themes. Students from across the district may apply to a magnet program, however, transportation will only be provided to students living within the designated transportation boundary for the magnet program. The purpose of magnet programs are to improve student achievement, promote diversity, and create an awareness of career opportunities relative to the fields of study in which students may be interested.

CCSD is proud to announce the new Career and Technical Academy in the Northeast. The new school will open for the 2023-2024 school year and will focus on Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways. The new CTA will offer 10 programs including: Architectural Design, Automotive/Diesel Technology, Business Management, Computer Science, Construction Technology, Cybersecurity, Energy Technology, Medical Professions, Human and Social Services, and Teaching and Training.

The CCSD Magnet Schools and Career and Technical Academies Department will be hosting both in-person and virtual Magnet 101 Parent Workshops over the coming months including a Choice Fair on Saturday, November 5, 2022, at the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts for families interested in learning about the various magnet programs throughout the District.

Any student currently residing or planning to reside in Clark County may submit an application to attend a magnet school of their choice. A lottery will be conducted for any program when there are more qualifying students than available seats.

Information regarding application criteria is available online at magnet.ccsd.net.

Central Technical Training Academy

Central Technical Training Academy, which just opened this August, is a non-traditional high school focusing on career pathway training through career and technical education (CTE) coursework, credentialing, and work-based learning opportunities. Students, who will be beginning their 11th grade year, may select one or both of the following CTE programs of study:  Construction Technology and Advanced Manufacturing. Both programs will include opportunities for students to earn industry-recognized credentials and to participate in work-based learning through internships or other work experience.

Change of School Assignment

CCSD uses the official residence of a parent/guardian to establish the school to which a student is assigned. As outlined in Regulation 5112, the COSA process provides an equitable way for parents to request a school assignment outside the established zone.

The list of schools with seats available can be accessed by clicking here. If a school does not appear on the list, the school has been determined to be over capacity and does not have seats available for the COSA process. Additionally, CCSD Magnet Schools are not eligible for COSA and have a separate application process.
