Hey my LAUSD folks,
Just a friendly reminder that today is the LAST DAY to get your eChoices application in before tonight’s 11:59p deadline. If you haven’t gotten your application in yet, take a moment, go up there, and DO IT NOW. Don’t be late.
The eChoices application includes lottery selections for Magnets, Dual Language programs, Schools for Advanced Studies, and (new for 2020), Affiliated Charter Schools for elementary students, and for secondary students, all those categories plus Permits With Transportation, and Admission Criteria Schools. Six categories all from one app!
If you have already submitted your application, you might want to log onto your parent dashboard and review your selections today, making sure all the schools you wanted are listed and prioritized exactly how you want them to be. This is the last day you can make any edits to your application, such as reorder the priority (1st-2nd-3rd) of your choices, or drop/add some choices. Whatever is on your application at 11:59p this evening, is what is being submitted, but you can still make changes up until tonight’s deadline.
***Heads up, the SAS Verification of Eligibility Form is due by 5p tonight, not 11:59p.
How Do I Check My eChoices App and/or Make Changes?
Log onto your dashboard with your email and password at eChoices.lausd.net or apply.lausd.net. (They both will arrive at the same place.)
Once you are logged in with your password, you will be at your dashboard. (If you are just getting started for the first time, you will “Apply to Programs” and follow the prompts to select your choices in each category.) If you have already put in an application and want to give it a final once over before tonight’s deadline, click on “Track/Edit Applications” to review what you have previously submitted.
Then you will see each of your children’s current applications, and you can click on one to open it up and view it. Make sure it is exactly how you want it.
If you want to add/drop/reorder anything, this is your chance. Do it here. Remember to hit SAVE at the bottom when you are done.
Once you submit your app again, you should see your confirmation number and get an auto-email alert from “firstname.lastname@example.org” with your submission confirmation. Review everything again to make sure it caught all your changes.
Repeat for each sibling.
This is it. Only on-time applications are eligible for waitlist points in the magnet category, and have the best odds overall in the lotteries. Don’t be late.
Also, don’t wait until 11:57p tonight to try to cram your app in. You know the LAUSD server will be busy!
Also, you’ve had 6 1/2 weeks to get this done.
Wishing everyone the best possible outcome in the lotteries!
Thank you for participating.
I will be offline for the weekend and will be back at my desk on Monday.
When are announcements usually made re: the lottery and selections, do you know?
