ALL middle school and high school applicants must submit a copy of their report card(s) for the entire 2012–2013 school year with the magnet application. 2013-2014 first-quarter report cards for students currently enrolled in a Baltimore County public school are obtained from System data. Applicants not currently attending a Baltimore County public school must apply by Tuesday, November 26, 2013, and provide a copy of the current year’s first-quarter/trimester report card when it’s available, but by no later than December 31, 2013.
Academic grades and effort marks for four quarters/three trimesters from the previous year’s report card and the first quarter/trimester from the current year’s report card are reviewed in each of five academic areas: Reading, Writing/Language Usage, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science. Students lose points for each grade of “D” or “E” and each effort mark indicating less than “satisfactory” performance. There is no weighting or special consideration given to grades received in gifted and talented classes, trimester grades, or grades that are calculated on scales other than those used by Baltimore County Public Schools.
Academic grades, current mathematics enrollment and attendance may be reviewed. Students are awarded points for meeting established standards. There is no weighting or special consideration given to grades received in gifted and talented classes, trimester grades, or grades that are calculated on scales other than those used by Baltimore County Public Schools.
