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.

Let the games begin!

As We Head into Magnet Season

Here’s an article from the LA Times on some of the leading magnets: http://www.latimes.com/projects/la-me-edu-magnet-test-scores-2016/

This list will come in handy when comparing with the e-choices site later this fall.

Schools with Openings 2016-17

I’ve been informed that school starts in just a few weeks. Feel free to post SAS/magnet/neighborhood schools with openings–and the specifics of grade levels, and contact information. Help prevent split grade classrooms and help families find the right schools.

Happy end of summer.❤

Magnets with Space Available 2016-17? Post here!

Until the 2016-17 space available list posts (and I will link it here), if you are a principal, magnet coordinator, or involved parent, feel free to share magnet openings in this thread.

Please post the school, the city, and any other pertinent information.

Let’s help parents find available magnets and fill those spots in each school.

Open Enrollment Season Has Started

Thanks to one of our very dedicated yentas for this info:

LAUSD just posted open enrollment info.

May 2-May 20, 2016:
District K-12 Open Enrollment application period.

Early to mid-June, 2016:

Schools for Advanced Studies (SAS) Applications for 2016-17 Available

Thanks to the heads up from one of our yentas, here’s the link for the updated SAS application for 2016-17: http://achieve.lausd.net/Page/2033

This does not include affiliated charters, which have their own timelines due to state rules, but with the magnet acceptances and wait lists going out, this is another opportunity to choose where your children can attend.

List LAUSD 2016-17 Magnet Acceptances Here

Letters are now up at echoices.lausd.net. Please DO NOT call schools on Friday asking about wait lists. It’s a minimum day at many/most schools. No school will have any info until after the acceptance deadline of April 8.

When the magnet letters go out, please post the school, points, accepted or waitlisted, and anything else that you think might help us read the proverbial tea leaves to determine who got in and where the wait list starts.

Feel free to share this post with other families so we have more complete information. I definitely see new schools in the mix of acceptances and waitlists. Thanks to all posting.

Walter Reed acceptances have also gone out.

Good luck to all. This is the first year after 20 where I haven’t had to fill out an application.🙂
