Company Matching
Does your company match donations to organizations? A Wiley family recently made a cash donation to Wiley and Fidelity doubled their donation! If you donate to Wiley or the Wiley PTA, we encourage you to check to see if this is an option through your company.

Information on Magnet Student Applications from Magnet Programs

The Magnet Application period is upon us. You are able to apply for magnet schools between January 14 and 25, 2013. There are changes this year that may affect you and your family if you have students going to middle school and/or siblings of current students entering school. Please contact Tamani Anderson-Powell at Magnet Programs with questions. Her email is and phone number is 919-431-7349.

*SIBLINGS MUST apply to the school of the older sibling. There are no more intent forms so siblings must apply.
*Entering grade (Kindergarten, 6th grade, 9th grade) siblings have the highest priority and will be placed at the sibling's school IF they apply.
*Other grade siblings will have a priority but not a guarantee.

*There are NO MORE FEEDER PATTERN assignments. ALL students interested in attending a magnet MUST apply. If you are currently at Wiley and not going to middle school-you do not need to do anything.
*This means that if your child wants to continue in a magnet at the next grade span (Kindergarten, 6th grade, 9th grade) they MUST apply.
*Families wanting their previously promised feeder pattern may ask for it during the final transfer period in May.
*More details can be found at the WCPSS Magnet Website
