Help! Which (Confusing) Magnet Selector Do I Choose?

Hey guys, I’ve been getting this Magnet question A LOT so let me share this loud and wide:

When you log into your parent account to submit your eChoices application, next to each child there is a pull-down menu.

Select “Magnet/PWT” Magnet:PWT Selectorand “Apply” and it will take you to the actual application.

If, however, you select “Magnet Space Available” – you will be applying for programs that are currently under-enrolled and have space THIS YEAR RIGHT NOW, so don’t select that option unless that’s your end goal, or you could be accepted like, immediately.

Once you are on the actual 2016-17 Magnet application you can finish filling out your choices.

MagnetchoicesRemember, you can submit your Magnet application and then go back and amend it as often as you like up until the Friday, November 13th 5pm deadline.

Um, does LAUSD deliberately make this process more difficult than it needs to be?
I mean, aren’t there like 500-gazillion parents putting in a Magnet app and only a small percentage who even qualify for, let alone know what PWT is? And BTW that Core Waiver/PSMCP has also been phased out unless you’re already on one. But I digress…

Ok, glad we cleared that up.
