On November 21, 2019, the Board of Education approved a magnet assignment plan for Glenwood to allow for two traditional sections per grade and two dual language sections per grade at the school. The new magnet assignment plan will be implemented starting in 2020-21.
STEAM² (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math, and Mandarin) Program
All current traditional-program students enrolled at Glenwood as of November 21, 2019 and their rising K siblings are guaranteed a seat in the STEAM² program 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 May 29, 2020.
- Rising K siblings of students meeting the above conditions are enrolled at Glenwood by May 29, 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 are assigned to the school zoned to their address. Students who do not accept placement and rising K siblings who are not enrolled by May 29, 2020 will be assigned to the "overflow" schools below. Bus transportation will be provided.
Mandarin Chinese Dual Language/STEAM² (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math, and Mandarin) Program
All current Dual Language students enrolled at Glenwood are guaranteed a seat in the Mandarin Chinese Dual Language/STEAM² program 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 at Glenwood by May 29, 2020.
New Students in the 2019-20 School Year
Traditional-program 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-program 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-program students domiciled in the new Glenwood zone must complete the enrollment process before May 29, 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 May 29, 2020 deadline will be assigned to the "overflow" schools below. Bus transportation will be provided.
