Applying for school choice programs involves the following steps:


Read about the age and residency requirements; explore as many school/program options as possible. Check out the Find a School Tool to help you with your search.


After you receive your assignment letter, you must either call the school or login to Apply.LAUSD.net to confirm acceptance (or decline) of your placement at the assigned school in order to secure your seat. You may only accept one school placement assignment. After registering, you may still login to Apply.LAUSD.net to participate in further school choice processes if there’s another school that you would rather have your child attend. Students that do not apply to a school of choice are automatically assigned to their home school based on the attendance area of their home address.


School choice applications for all grade levels, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, are processed centrally through the Apply.LAUSD.net website by creating an account. After you activate your account, you will have the opportunity to add student(s) to your account. Once your student(s) have been added to your account, you can apply for schools of choice with the click of a button! You will receive a confirmation letter for each student and program to which you apply.
