This comes after a special workshop Wednesday afternoon where Bay High administrators presented the board with Bay Magnet program data from the 2005-2006 school year.

The board requested the data before they'll consider granting Bay High's request for funding for a magnet coordinator.

Gov. Jeb Bush cut the grant that funded the position last summer.

The magnet program, which was established in 2000, offers specialized classes in law, culinary arts, drama, and music, just to name a few.

Under normal circumstances the coordinator position ends when funding dries up, but some board members say if there are enough students to fund the position, than they should have a coordinator.

Board members will vote on the position during next Wednesday's regular meeting.
