Hope you’re all doing well. Just thought I’d post a couple of updates here.
Late Apps [for LAUSD Choices categories] are in full swing right now if you missed the on-time November deadline, or want to add additional selections to your spread. Each selection will be submitted individually, time-stamped, and added to the end of the on-time waitlist. You will not receive any waitlist points on a Late App Magnet, however you just might win a seat.
Many Independent Charters have deadlines coming up right around this time. Each are submitted individually at each school’s website. If you miss the deadline, you can ask to submit a late app and be added to the end of the on-time waitlist.
Permitting – both within (intra) and leaving the district (inter) – are ongoing right now.
Upcoming Dates of Note:
Mon, March 14, 2022 – initial results of the LAUSD Choices lotteries are posted
Fri, April 8, 2022 – LAUSD Choices Accept/Decline Deadline
Mon, April 11 – Fri, April 15, 2022 – LAUSD Spring Break; schools and offices closed
Mon, April 18, 2022 – Waitlists start to move! (This is just the beginning of a very long process)
Weds, April 27, 2022 – Open Enrollment opens – always a few gems on that list
…AND we still don’t have a START DATE for LAUSD’s 2022-2023 school year. The Board of Ed may vote on this in March, but no official word just yet.

I have been quietly working away in my cubicle helping as many families as I can with their public school queries during these trying times. I know it’s difficult with no on-site tours, and no fresh school data, still. If you need assistance, reach out to schedule a Zoom or Phone or Relocation Consultation with me, and let’s talk school.
Ok folks, hang in there!
