Dallas ISD Specialty Schools/Programs - Applications vs. Seats Available 2017

This is from the paper copy of The Dallas Morning News dated 5-20-2017.

Dallas ISD has a variety of programs that require an application in order to be admitted. Some of the programs are more competitive than others. Below is a list of number of 2017 applicants and their 1st choice schools and the seats available in each program.

The Dallas Morning News ranked the programs by popularity or the percentage of applicants per seats available ("Percent filled"). If there were 75 seats available and 75 applicants, the percent filled would be 100%. If there were more applicants than seats, than the percentage would be over 100% and the schools would get to pick and choose which students to accept. If there were only a few applicants then not all of the seats would be filled and the percentage would be below 100%. The assumption would be all applicants would obtain seats because there would be no competition for the spots. Remaining seats could be filled by applicants who list the schools as 2nd or 3rd preference.

Program Types:
M - Magnet
T - Transformation (choice, but no performance testing)
CA - Collegiate Academy (dual credit programs)
