Magnet Lottery Process
An important issue affecting our students and staff will come before voters Nov. 7 with the $922 million Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools bond proposal. If the bond is approved, CMS would build 17 new schools and provide renovations or additions to 12 others.
Our school would benefit through reduced overcrowding because of the addition of new schools.
The bond would significantly impact learning—providing state-of-the-art technology and classrooms and learning spaces that encourage collaboration and flexibility, equipping students for success in the 21st century.
Seventy-eight percent of CMS schools are at or over capacity and many were built in the 1950s. The bond would relieve overcrowding throughout the district.
For more information on the CMS school bond, please select the link below.
To vote in the November election, you can register to vote until Oct. 13. Same-day, in-person registration and voting can be done Oct. 19-Nov.4. To learn more, visit the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections website.

Technology Sites to Use at Home
Do you ever wonder what your children can do at home to continue their education after the school day ends?
If so, below are screen shots that will show families how to help their children access the amazing sites CMS has purchased for students this year. If you do not know your child's Student ID# or password, please contact their teacher; we'd be happy to assist you with that information.
Are you wondering how you can keep your child safe in an increasingly digital world? Idlewild students recently completed a unit of study on digital citizenship, and have learned how to be responsible, respectful and safe in an online environment. There are a wealth of resources available for parents at www.commonsensemedia.org
