Guiding students through the magnet process

The Racial Equity Office in partnership with the Office of Transformation and Innovation is seeking 100 district mentors to assist students and families during the magnet school application period.  Each mentor will be assigned five elementary and/or middle school students from various campuses throughout the district.

The purpose of the Magnet Mentor program is to increase the number of African American and English Learner students from historically underrepresented communities who enroll in the Dallas ISD magnet school programs.  The goal of this initiative is to involve 500 students this year.

Mentor responsibilities will include helping families with application support, assessment preparation, and connecting students with current and  future campus supports. All selected mentors will be eligible for a $500 stipend in June if all program expectations are met.

If you are interested in serving as a mentor this year, please use this link and apply by Oct. 15. Selected mentors will be notified via email by Oct. 26.
