A message from our Magnet Coordinator, Elizabeth Billingslea: 

I’ve been a teacher in Baltimore County Public School for twenty-six years. Prior to my current position as Magnet Coordinator, I was a classroom English teacher and department chair and a Consulting Teacher in BCPS.

At Sollers Point I oversee the recruitment, application and assessment process of magnet programs. In this capacity, I visit area middle schools and conduct informational presentations about the ten programs we offer at Sollers Point. I also inform students and parents about how transportation, scheduling and programs work at Sollers as we offer a unique half-day schedule to our students. As magnet coordinator, I also liaison with area elementary schools to coordinate and arrange visits to Sollers Point.

I design and organize the Sollers Point Technical High School Open House, and the presentation at Baltimore County’s Magnet Expo each year. These events are designed specifically to showcase the programs we offer at Sollers with the idea of recruitment in mind.

Once students are accepted into Sollers, I am the contact person for all things magnet-related. I organize mailings and parent contacts, I assist with the New Student Orientation. In addition, with regard to the Superintendent’s Rule 5140, and Rule 6400, I monitor student performance, attendance and conduct as part of the support system to promote student achievement. The school counseling office and I work together on the enrollment, withdraw and dismissal process when necessary.

Another portion of my job is related to developing and providing professional development for our staff. Mainly, this is in regard to close reading in the content areas distinctive to our programs and the academic areas unique to Sollers Point. The purpose of this initiative is mainly to guide students in their ability to achieve one or more certifications in their programs while at Sollers Point.

Finally, I design, compose and publish a monthly newsletter celebrating the successes and highlighting our school’s programs and distinctive student and teacher achievements, school events, magnet news and photos of these achievements. In this newsletter, I gather teacher input, student feedback and endeavor to be responsive to what students would like to read about and see in the school’s newsletter.
