Space Available applicants are not assigned priority points and do not accrue any
priority points. Space available seats will open after all of the students on the
Waiting list have been offered placement at the selected school site.
Each Magnet’s openings are determined by the need to maintain a racially balanced
enrollment as mandated by the Court Order and by available space. Please be aware
that filling out a space available application does not guarantee student placement.
To apply online, click the 2014-2015 Space Available Application link above. When
you apply online, you will receive a confirmation number and a receipt of application.

The LAUSD Magnet Program is one of the most successful in the Nation.
Since 1977, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) has been in the forefront
of providing high-quality instruction and a rigorous curriculum designed to facilitate
student learning and promote academic achievement for all District students participating
voluntary integration programs.
The Magnet and Permits With Transportation (PWT) programs are in alignment with
LAUSD goals: 100 percent graduation, proficiency for all, 100 percent attendance,
parent and community engagement, and school safety. Students participating in either
program are required to take and pass A-G courses necessary to become college-prepared
The Magnet and PWT programs were established to address the Five Harms of Racial
Isolation: Low Academic Achievement, Low Self-Esteem, Lack of Access to Postsecondary
Opportunities, Interracial Hostility and Intolerance, and Overcrowded Conditions.
Magnets offer theme-based instructional opportunities to all students in grades
K-12, living within the boundaries of LAUSD. Currently, there are 191 Magnet Programs
located throughout the District. All District students, including English Learners,
Special Education and Gifted/Talented are encouraged to apply.
Permits With Transportation
PWT is a court-ordered voluntary integration program available to residents
of the Los Angeles Unified School District who live within a PWT sending school
area. The PWT program provides students with integrated experiences by placing Hispanic,
Black, Asian and Other Non-Anglo students in integrated school settings while providing
opportunities for Other White (OW) students to attend Predominantly Hispanic, Black,
Asian and Other Non-Anglo (PHBAO) schools. School assignments and availability are
the responsibility of the District.
