For the past two years, the WCPSS Magnet Office has conducted a Second Chance magnet application process for priority applicants*.
- New priority applicants and
- Priority applicants who were not able to be selected during the initial magnet application period
The only schools available for this event are magnet schools with a limited number of priority magnet seats still available. This year, MECME is one of these schools. In other words, there is still a chance to become a MECME Bee!
To apply to MECME, please submit a transfer request anytime after May 1, 2020 (this transfer application window runs up to the first day of school for the 2020-2021 school year) at transfers.wcpss.net/apply. Identify it as a hardship transfer and, in the dialogue box, enter “Invited to apply by the Office of Magnet Programs” and include your level of priority.
If your request is approved, MECME will become your child’s assigned school. If you are selected for MECME and transportation is not provided, you will be responsible for transportation to and from school. To see the level of transportation for your address, visit wcpss.net/preview. If MECME is not on your list, you may still request us but transportation will not be available.
*Priority applicants are those who qualify for selection priorities 1-5. To confirm your selection priority, please visit wcpss.net/priorities.

We are sorry, but we are not offering tours of MECME at this time.
