Dr. King’s Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the expanded Choices Brochure and common application. The Choices Brochure and application include an overview of L.A. Unified’s Magnet schools and centers, Permits With Transportation offerings and the extensive Dual Language and Bilingual programs available throughout the District.

One of the main goals of the District’s strategic plan is to expand Choices. An important step toward meeting this goal is the new Unified Enrollment initiative. An aspect of Unified Enrollment is a common application that allows even more opportunities for your child to excel at L.A. Unified. You can choose, for example,from among the 260 Magnet programs and 101 Dual Language and Bilingual programs.

L.A. Unified is proud to offer wide-ranging, innovative, high-quality instruction to all students. We believe that by cultivating their interests, we teach our students to appreciate the world’s rich diversity and hone their skills to fully participate as global citizens. I remain committed to ensuring that L.A. Unified continues to be a national leader in growing and creating educational pathways.

We are proud of the work our schools are doing to bring these exciting opportunities to our communities. Thank you for your continued support and commitment to these programs.

Your Superintendent,


Dr. Michelle King
