MAGNET SCHOOL LOTTERY  DELAYED
 
           
                The New Haven Magnet School Office announced today that it will postpone one week the magnet school lottery because of a late surge in applications and processing delays caused by recent snowstorms.

 
                 The lottery’s new time and date is 10 a.m. Tuesday, March 8.

 
                 “A wave of last minute applications and repeated snow days slowed processing of lottery applications,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Reginald Mayo said. “We are delaying the lottery one week to provide enough time to process and verify the accuracy of applications. The delay assures all a fair shake and our information is correct.”
