Magnet schools are operated by the local public school district, but draw students from across the parish rather than from assigned attendance zones. Magnet schools often provide a special curricular focus, such as STEM, the arts, or career pathways. In Baton Rouge, students and their families must submit an application during the school’s enrollment period, and there are often selective admissions criteria that the student must meet in order to enroll.
District-run schools utilize the Teacher Retirement System of Louisiana (TRSL).
