If you were…
If you have been offered a seat to Palm Springs Middle School’s Multi-Media Entertainment Technology magnet program, beginning in the 2023-2024 school year, you must accept by logging back into the Magnet Application System to accept your seat by April 5th. You must also submit the following documents found on the Accepted Magnet Students page.
Upon declaring your seat, you will receive email with instructions on how to complete the registration process. Once registered, students must continue to meet standards set forth in the Magnet Enrollment Agreement, maintaining required levels of academic performance, attendance, and conduct.
WHAT’S NEXT? At this time, we are awaiting notification from students who received acceptance letters. At that point, we will determine the available seats in each grade level. As needed, we will be contacting waitlisted students in the order of the randomized lottery list provided to us by the district office. Acceptance from the waitlist depends on your place in the waitlist order. In any case, you will be informed immediately of any change in your admission status.
We request that you please refrain from contacting the school to ask about your child’s waitlist number. WE DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO WAITLIST NUMBERS. The spaces are automatically populated once a seat becomes available. Therefore, it is not necessary to contact the school and ask for the waitlist number.
If you applied and accepted another Magnet Program’s invitation, your decision will not impact your child’s position on the waiting list at this school.
Students who received a Not Eligible letter did not meet the admission criteria for your grade level. No further action is needed. You may apply again for admission for the 2024-2025 school year when we open the Application window on. October 1, 2023. Please refer to the admission requirements the appropriate grade level.

The Lottery is administered by the Schools of Choice & Parental Options Office. Applications are to be submitted electronically or mailed to the Schools of Choice & Parental Options Office.
