2019-2020 Magnet Season Opens October 1

Per the echoices website, “The on-time application window for the 2019-2020 academic year is October 1 – November 9, 2018. During this time period you can submit an application for the following programs: Magnet, Permits With Transportation, Dual Language Education, Admission Criteria Schools and Schools for Advanced Studies.”

Ask a Magnet Yenta attempts to offer advice (and emotional support) for the LAUSD magnet program and the SAS program. Where we can, we will offer help on other programs. Please remember this is an entirely volunteer force, and we are paying it forward.

To help our yentas with your questions, be as specific as you can. Post your questions in the comments below.

As an aside, 2019-2020 will be the first year that Magnet Angel no longer has a child in LAUSD after 24 years. Good luck to all applicants!

2018-19 Magnet Season Tours and Magnet Nights

Yep, it’s nearly that time. Let’s wax nostalgic as when we hit 2019, my youngest graduates high school. But fear not we’re happy to post magnet tours in *THIS* post (simply post your magnet tours & magnet nights in the comments and we’ll get them into the main post).

NorthEast, NorthWest, South, East and West, Magnet Nights are an easy way to visit multiple magnets in one location in one night. The link to that list is here.

And if you’d like to see the new magnet programs opening up in 2018-19, visit here.

Magnet season officially runs from Monday, October 2nd through Thursday, November 9th. But tours have started already, as have some school magnet nights. Also look to see about Magnet Open Houses, as some schools have started having weekend or evening open houses to get an even better idea of the school climate.

Please make sure any magnet you choose has transportation if that is important to you!

Magnet Tours and Meet the Magnet Nights for 2017-2018

Magnet season is nearly here. The eCHOICES Application opens on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016 with a deadline of Thursday, Nov. 10, 2016. Meet the Magnets nights usually do not require reservations. Most school tours DO. Please check with the school’s website to reserve your spot or confirm they do not require advanced registration.

Please share your magnet info such as tours and magnet nights in the comments and I will add them to this list. Questions? Ask those in the comments as well.
