Permits With Transportation (PWT) is one of L.A. Unified's original integration programs and was established as a Court-Order to provide students with integrated school experiences within our district. PWT school assignments are made by the District to one of the following schools: Revere MS, Portola MS or Taft HS. The PWT program does not provide transportation to magnets or any other Choices program.
What are the goals of the instructional program?
PWT students are enrolled in the regular school program and may take part in all programs and activities available to resident students at the school where they are selected. Students and parents are encouraged to participate in all school/community activities at the PWT school.
Who is eligible?
Students who are in grades 6-12 during the 2022-2023 school year and reside within the following Los Angeles Unified resident school boundary sending areas are eligible to apply for the PWT program:
Middle School Sending Areas:
Audubon, Drew, Gompers, Harte Prep, Mann, Muir and Obama Global
High School Sending Areas:
Crenshaw, Dorsey, Dymally, Hawkins, Jordan, Locke, Manual Arts and Washington Prep.
How are students selected?
PWT priority selection is given to matriculating PWT students and students with siblings in the PWT program, while continuing at the same PWT school during the same year. The remaining PWT seats will be assigned randomly.
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 Los Angeles Unified at the time of application and while participating in the PWT program. Post office boxes are not accepted..
Permits with Transportation (PWT) are Court-Ordered programs that require parents to select ONE federally identified ethnicity/race category on the application. Select the option next to the ethnicity or race that best describes the child for which you are applying. You may fill in the “Multi-ethnic” response to indicate the applicant is identified as more than one ethnicity/race but your application WILL NOT be processed unless you choose one of the federally identified ethnicity/race categories.
Is there transportation?
Yes, PWT is a program that provides transportation to the following non-PHBAO schools: Portola MS, Revere MS and Taft High School.
