Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP)

Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP)

MSAP provides grants to local educational agencies to support magnet schools under an approved, required, or voluntary desegregation plan. MSAP provides an opportunity to develop and implement magnet schools that increase racial integration and promote academic opportunity and excellence. MSAP prioritizes the creation and replication of evidence-based magnet programs and magnet schools that seek to reduce, eliminate, or prevent minority group isolation by taking into account socioeconomic diversity. Additionally, TEG has evaluated a similar School Choice grant program funded through a U.S. Department of Education Investing in Innovation grant.
