Can I Enroll My Child in a School Other Than My Neighborhood School?

There are several options for enrollment in schools away from your home attendance area:

  • Magnet Schools and Magnet Centers
  • Permits With Transportation (PWT);
  • Open Enrollment

Other types of permits may be available in special circumstances if the desired school has available classroom seats. Such permits could include:

  • sibling permit (to enroll in a school where a brother or sister is already enrolled);
  • child care permit (to enroll in a school that serves the attendance area address where a younger student is cared for every day after school hours by a known child care agency or private organization or a verifiable child care provider);
  • intra-district and inter-district parent employment-related transfer permit (to enroll in a school that serves the attendance area address where the child's parent/guardian is reguarly employed).

For additional information on the district's Permits with Transportation and Open Enrollment programs, call (213) 241-6414.

If you would like to learn more about obtaining a permit outside of the attendance area of your child's school, but still within the LAUSD, please call your child's local school. For additional information on inter-district permits, call the LAUSD's Permits and Student Transfers Office at (213) 745-1967.
