Application Process -- Your student must be a J. L. Mann student in order to attend NewTech@Mann classes. If you do not live in the J. L. Mann attendance area you must apply through the Magnet Program before you can apply to NewTech@Mann. Once your student is an accepted magnet student you can be considered for NewTech@Mann.
Applications will be reviewed for student interest in project-based learning and prior high school credit earned. There is not a minimum GPA requirement – any interested home-based or accepted magnet student may apply.
In order to ensure equity and fairness, NewTech@Mann students are selected by lottery after the application deadline. Only students whose completed applications were received prior to the application deadline will be included in the lottery. Student selection continues until 150 9th grade applicants have been chosen. The 151st student selected (and beyond) will go on a waiting list in the order that they are drawn. This waiting list stays in force through the current school year until the lottery for the next school year is conducted and a new list is generated.
