Understanding McPherson's Lottery
 
McPherson Magnet School, an OUSD K-8 magnet school, is open to all OUSD resident students.  (Should you qualify for the 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.) 


All parents or guardians of prospective students, entering the McPherson lottery, must attend one orientation meeting, (you may choose morning or afternoon) and must reside within the OUSD boundaries at time of orientation.  Orientation dates for the 2018/2019 school year are:

February 8th, 2018

9:00am or

3:00pm

Lottery cards for both the 9:00am and 3:00pm orientation at McPherson are drawn at the same time at the lottery draw at Orange Unified School District, in their Board Room, on Thursday, February 15th at 9:00am.
