The process for applying to the Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School is transitioning to an online application. The one page application form will be submitted through ZippSlip beginning this year. Students must use their guardian’s account to complete the application. If your student receives a letter from their school counselor (Distributed October 10th and 11th) or you have received a School Messenger call or email that they are eligible to apply to MLGWS then they have already been granted access to the ZippSlip application. The ZippSlip application will be available on October 16, 2017. If your student did not receive a letter or you do not see the MLGWS Application as an option when you login to ZippSlip please review the Criteria for Applying document on the web at http://blogs.henrico.k12.va.us/mlwgs/maggie-l-walker-governor-school/ for further information. If your student does not meet the criteria listed but would like to be considered as an applicant, your student must come to school counseling to discuss this with Mrs. Sharpe. Students wishing to apply that do not meet criteria will be required to write a letter before November 3, 2017. If you feel like your student met the requirements for Governor’s School and did not receive a letter, please speak with Mrs. Sharpe. Please call or email Mrs. Sharpe (804-364-0837, firstname.lastname@example.org) for instructions for accessing Zippslipp if you are unable to log in. Deadline to complete the online application is December 1, 2017.
