Magnet and Other Unified Enrollment letters went out this week. Check your E-Choices portal for updates. Please share your acceptances & wait list notifications in the comments and include school name, child’s gender, race (white/minority is fine), points on the application and whether your student was accepted or rejected.
Please keep in mind that a wait list slot now is a wait list slot until Norm Day (5 weeks into the next school year), so students may be called well into September.
Congrats to those who got accepted and fingers crossed for those on the wait list.
Since it’s looking less likely that online learning is just for a couple of weeks, I’ll be updating a page to help parents get help for their kids. Sharing a roof 24/7 is tough enough without bringing schoolwork into the equation.
Page is here: askamagnetyenta.wordpress.com/school-closure-resources/
Feel free to suggest links. I’ll add them to the main page as I can.
***UPDATE: Due to the fires and evacuations, LAUSD has generously extended the deadline for e-Choices until November 16. Please share this information with all you know.
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!
Some cool additions: L.A. Unified, in cooperation with the Compton Unified School District (CUSD), offers a limited number of 9th grade openings at the King- Drew Magnet High School of Medicine and Science. These openings are ONLY available to residents of CUSD.
They clearly list the kindergarten magnets giving more options for more families.
