Magnet Programs
Transportation Eligibility 

Transportation eligibility is determined by the transportation zone in which you live. The county is divided into four transportation zones:  violet, grey, blue, and green. Magnet schools are assigned a zone to serve with transportation. Some programs provide county-wide transportation, meaning that regardless of your zone, you would receive transportation. To determine your transportation zone and to see the schools that serve your zone, click on the link below and view the color codes chart below.
