The Office of Educational Options supports schools to provide options for students. BCPS Magnet programs are theme-related curricula and instructional programs that are not available as comprehensive school program options; serve as incubators for innovative instructional practices; draw students across student attendance boundaries, in accordance with state-rated capacity; and are accessed through a centralized application and admissions process.

 In addition, middle and high school students may choose to access learning using cutting edge digital learning strategies and resources such as blended learning, online courses, purchased digital content, BCPS created and curated digital learning objects accessed through BCPS One, virtual instruction delivered through webinars, and real time student performance data that allows our students and teachers to engage in responsive teaching and learning anchored in performance and mastery.
