20 U.S. Code § 7231e - Priority

§ 7231e.

(2) propose to—

significantly revise an existing magnet school program, using evidence-based methods and practices, as available; or
replicate an existing magnet school program that has a demonstrated record of success in increasing student academic achievement and reducing isolation of minority groups;
propose to select students to attend magnet school programs by methods such as lottery, rather than through academic examination; and
