On November 21, 2019, the Board of Education approved a magnet assignment plan for Glenwood to allow for two traditional and two dual language tracks at the school. The new magnet assignment plan will be implemented starting in 2020-21.
All current traditional-track students enrolled at Glenwood as of November 21, 2019 and their rising K siblings are guaranteed a seat at Glenwood for the 2020-21 school year if they meet each of the following conditions:
- Students are domiciled in the new (2020-21) or previous (2014-19) Glenwood assignment zone.
- Students accept placement at Glenwood by April 15, 2020.
- Rising K siblings of students meeting the above conditions are enrolled at Glenwood by April 15, 2020.
Students who have moved from the current or previous Glenwood assignment zone are not eligible for enrollment at Glenwood for the 2020-21 school year. They will attend the school assigned to their address. Students who do not accept placement and rising K siblings who are not enrolled by April 15, 2020 will be assigned to the "overflow" schools below. Bus transportation will be provided.
Dual Language Track
All current Dual Language students enrolled at Glenwood are guaranteed a seat at Glenwood for the 2020-21 school year if they are domiciled within the boundaries of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools.
Rising K siblings must be enrolled by at Glenwood by April 15, 2020.
New Students in the 2019-20 School Year
Traditional-track students who enrolled at Glenwood after November 21, 2019 are able to remain at Glenwood for the 2020-21 school year only if space is available. If space is not available, they will attend the "overflow" school assigned to their address. New traditional-track students domiciled in the previous (2014-19) Glenwood assignment zone have the option of attending Glenwood with bus transportation until the end of the 2019-20 school year or attending the newly-assigned school without bus transportation until the end of the 2019-20 school year.
New Students in the 2020-21 School Year
Traditional-track students domiciled in the new Glenwood zone must complete the enrollment process before April 15, 2020 to be eligible for a seat at Glenwood. Available seats will be assigned through a lottery process. Students not seated in the lottery or enrolled after the April 15, 2020 deadline will be assigned to the "overflow" schools below. Bus transportation will be provided.
