Clark County schools will convene for their annual magnet fair at the Galleria Mall on October 22 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., to inform potential students about the benefits each school has to offer. This event is open to the public.
“The purpose of the the fair is to let people in the community know about CTA’s and Magnet schools in the district. Each school can show off their programs and it is mostly student driven, because you are the ones that should be excited about your programs and getting others excited about them as well,” states Community Partnership Coordinator Jeffery Ball.
The fair is not only for high schools, but it will also showcase various magnet and CTA programs, grades K-12.
Booths will be set up for students and parents to visit each schools table at their own pace. There will be a group of representatives at each booth to share information about their school.
“Going to a magnet school or career and technical academy gives students and/or future students an opportunity to plan what they want as their career. It prepares them for college and gets them ready ahead of time. The students also receive education from teachers with previous jobs as the students chosen major,” says sophomore Adnan Hodzic.
If students are interested in attending the fair or would like to sign up to volunteer and represent SWCTA, please see Mr. Ball in the Community Partnership Office.
