There will be an additional pull in the month of either July or August after TCAP scores are in. This pull will be limited to the pathway to Martin L. King and Hume-Fogg for Head, Rose Park, John Early and Meigs students who did not qualify in the fall. These dates will be posted on the website (www.mnps.org) as soon as they are known. If you are expecting a pathway form after June and will be on vacation in July or August, please email Jenai.Hayes@mnps.org for more information.

We will call parents during the first five days of school about openings and you will have 24 hours to accept or decline. Please consider your transportation and child care plans now. Send phone number changes, in writing, to the Office of School Options or email Jenai.Hayes@mnps.org.

MAKE SURE YOUR ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBERS ARE UPDATED WITH THE OFFICE OF SCHOOL OPTIONS. These must be in writing with a parent signature and can be emailed, faxed, mailed or brought in to Customer Service. Please provide this information at least a week before the letters will be mailed.
