Everyone agrees that Shawnee is a “shining star” and that it provides a great opportunity for JCPS students.  Principal Benboe has the most accurate and up-to-date information in recruitment efforts.  We devoted a full-time Magnet Coordinator position to maintain a focus on recruitment.  

Principal Benboe, as always, reach out directly to Dr. Dossett.  Student assignment falls in her division and Dr. Dossett will immediately be able to assist and let you know what is possible.

Thanks to all for your passion for, and for your support of JCPS students!
