pwt icon Permits With Transportation


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. Parents may call (213) 241-6572 or go to to verify if the applicant lives in a PWT sending school area. School assignments in the PWT program are made by the District. The PWT program provides students with integrated experiences by placing Hispanic, Black, Asian and Other Non-Anglo students in integrated settings while providing opportunities for Other White (OW) students to attend Predominantly Hispanic, Black, Asian and Other Non-Anglo (PHBAO) schools.

If space is available, current PWT students may continue from middle to high school by submitting an on-time application. The PWT program will assign siblings to the same school if an application is submitted. PWT students are enrolled in the regular school program and may take part in all programs and activities available to resident students. Parents are encouraged to participate in all school/community activities with transportation provided within PWT guidelines.

  • Do not submit a new application if your child is currently enrolled in the PWT program and wishes to continue at the same school.
  • Applicants currently enrolled in the PWT program who apply and are selected to a Magnet program will automatically be dropped from their current PWT program, whether they accept or decline.
  • If selected, parent/guardian may accept or decline online or by calling the school by the deadline on the selection letter. If the parent/ guardian does not respond by the deadline, it will be considered a decline.
  • Applicants MUST be residents of L.A. Unified at the time of application and while participating in the PWT program. Post office boxes are not accepted.
