  • LAUSD Magnet Schools: Choices application for 2016-2017 school year available today

    Choices Application 2015-2016

    The eChoices web site is now live with everything you need to complete this year’s application.

    If you’re ready to go, start here. You must have a LAUSD Parent Account to apply online.

    If you want a little more information before you start completing the application, go here and here.

    The paper version of the Choices brochure should be available at your local LAUSD school, Educational Service Centers and PCSB Offices, and Los Angeles Public Libraries. (I recommend calling to make sure copies are available before you head out to pick one up.)

    Schools have begun hosting tours, and you can find out about them by checking each school’s online calendar or calling their office. You can also check out magnet schools by attending the handful of scheduled Magnet Fairs.

    Don’t forget that the deadline to apply is November 13, 2015.

    Good luck!
