Magnet Application window opens December 1, 2014 Deadline for first consideration is February 11, 2015
Broward County Public Schools limits the number of students who may be admitted to South Plantation's magnet program. For the past 10 years, more qualified students applied than could be admitted, therefore selection of qualified students was completed by a random selection conducted by Broward County Public Schools' personnel. Students who applied after the deadline were placed on the waiting list AFTER those who met the deadline.
