With open enrollment, if you win a spot, it does not matter which grade your child is entering for that school (k-5, or 6-8 for middle, and 9-12 for high). If the school has child care permits, those they can choose which grades they have remaining spaces for.
It's quite typical for students to apply in kinder or first grade. It's far less common that parents of fourth and fifth graders apply, but open enrollment doesn't restrict which grades they may be in.78223
You don't have to ask the school of residence sign off anything. You can just send the application to the school on open enrollment list and you can apply to many schools on the list at the same time.
My daughter's current school is also on open enrollment list with API 900+. She got in after being taken off wait list. Most of the spots are for kindergarten as far as I know of. They cut down the class size due to budget crisis, so it is very hard to get in than it used to be.78241
If it is any help I have a map of all schools participating in open enrollment along with lists broken down by elementary, middle and high school. Most new schools are being labeled "Learning Centers" and don't necessarily show up as elementary schools. MagnetMom is absolutely correct about existing LAUSD families needing their school site administrator's signature (most front offices keep a stack of letters pre-signed)
