Understanding McPherson's Lottery
McPherson Magnet School, an OUSD K-8 magnet school, is open to all OUSD resident students, including those on Romero Act and employment related interdistrict transfers. Should you qualify for the Romero Act or Allen Bill (employment related interdistrict transfers), you must first obtain a release from your district of residence. The release should be taken to the principal of McPherson Magnet School, prior to the lottery orientation.
