Rampello Downtown Verification Form 2017 editable.pdf
Rampello Application Information

All application windows for the 2018-2019 school year are currently closed. IF there are still open spots available for Rampello after the lottery is pulled, it will reopen April 17th-24th.

Rampello is 100% magnet which means all of our students must apply through the Hillsborough County Public Schools Magnet/CHOICE Program Office.

For Rampello, we have an additional step to the application process, a Verification of Downtown Employment (See link above red writing)
All downtown verification forms need to come back to the school scanned/emailed or dropped off before the end of the magnet application period in which you're applying. All other application materials are to be submitted to the Magnet Office.

Please Note: It is advised to have a strong alternate school choices on your magnet application as we have limited enrollment. Seats are EXTREMELY limited. Also, please remember to complete the verification form for Downtown Employment Preference.
  • Families will not receive any letters or information via US mail
  • All students (current and new to HCPS) can respond online.
  • Families will be instructed to contact the school directly for enrollment procedures (see below)
* If you have a student currently attending Rampello, and are applying for a sibling, make sure you include your currently enrolled child's student number in the online application.

Placement Information- You got chosen in the lottery, so now what??
After the school lottery has been run, all families will receive a ParentLink phone message and email directing them to go online to view results.  Families can respond to results by visiting the Hillsborough Choice home page and clicking on the "Response Link" at the top of the page. All responses must be made by 11:59pm on Feb. 21st, 2018 or your seat will be given away.

Magnet Tips:

  • You must accept the seat as soon as possible to ensure your child's seat is held. We will release your offer if we don't hear back in a timely manner.
  • If you decline an offer for placement (at any school) you must reapply to be considered for any magnet program.  If you are not offered a seat (at any school) after the first round, your student's name will remain in the application pool until the start of the school year. Please note: some grades levels are extremely limited in number of seats available. If you choose Rampello as your only magnet choice and do not get offered a seat, you will have to reapply the following school year.
