Wake extends magnet-school application period

The deadline for submitting Wake County schools magnet applications has been extended to 10 p.m., Monday, officials announced Tuesday.

Applications were originally due Thursday, but administrators decided on an extension because there were technical problems when the period for signup began.

The notification date of Feb. 19, by which parents will be notified if their application was approved, will remain the same.
