09-19-2012, 07:21 PM
CPS no longer uses race as a criterion for placement in Magnet and Selective Enrollment schools. They are now using a measure of your socio-economic status called a Tier. There are 4 tiers with 1 representing the lowest socio-economic status and 4 being the highest.

You do not have to know your tier in order to apply, but if you would like to know, here are two tools to help you find it.

Open City App for Finding Your Tier (http://cpstiers.opencityapps.org/) -- unofficial but a lot easier!
