COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI)- It’s been 6 years since Columbus implemented a magnet school system. And a new evaluation of the programs show it helped enrollment and student achievement.

But that improvement is flattening out and district leaders are looking for ways to revive the initial momentum.

That means better defining the magnet curriculum at each of the five elementary schools, expanding it more to the middle school and putting more emphasis on science and math.

The district is applying for a seven million dollar state and federal grant to start new science and math programs, create a movement toward manufacturing at Columbus Middle School, and increase dual credits where students graduate simultaneously with a high school diploma and an associates degree.
