I will post it here. LAUSD will post it on their website, The Daily News will post an article at, and the LAUSD's Facebook feed will very likely mention it here:

The list changes every year, and the one for next year will be up soon.

Good luck!

Thank you MagnetMom - where can I see the posted list please?
I appreciate all of your help!

Hi sweetunagi,

Open enrollment typically happens in May. The district will publish a list of schools with open seats--not every school has openings. From there, you go to the school and fill out an application. Depending on how many apply, there would be a lottery, and then you'd find out by mid June if you got in.

The dates might move up a little since LAUSD is going to an Early Start calendar that will begin August 14. But pay attention to the Daily News, the LAUSD Facebook page, and I will post the information here.

Welcome back to LA!
