35 Frequently Asked Questions Are a high school’s home resident students guaranteed placement at their home school?No, but students in the residence area are given preference for admission to that high school.Students who are assigned to a school other than their home resident school are guaranteed a place in one of its small learning communities or academies.If a student is attending a private school, is it possible to attend a LBUSD high school other than her or his home resident high school?If an 8th grade student is not enrolled in a LBUSD school but resides within the district, that student can apply like any other LBUSD 8th grader to a school of choice specialized program with no guarantee of acceptance.Private School students not accepted into their school of choice specialized program can enroll in their resident school if there is space. To be considered for their home school, Private School students must apply to their home school. Mail completed applications to Special Projects Services / High School Choice Office
36 No specialized program changes will be made after February 15, 2013. Is there still a chance my child can get in to his/her first choice for a specialized program if he/she was not initially accepted?If a student is rejected by their first choice specialized program and does not want to attend any other specialized program, parents can contact the SSP coordinator after February 4th and before February 11th to determine if there are any openings after the Intent to Attend deadline. Since the enrollment capacity for each of our SSP programs at each of the high schools is limited, the probability is small there would be room. Parents should strongly consider returning the Intent to Attend for a program that has accepted the student unless their student would be satisfied being enrolled in the general small learning communities at his/her resident high school.No specialized program changes will be made after February 15, 2013.
37 No BusesIs transportation provided for students who are accepted into a Specialized Program or at a non-resident school?The district is unable to provide bus transportation to any school of choice or any magnet or special program.
38 Will a child be accepted automatically if the child attends a feeder middle school and turns in a Special Transfer or Appeal form?No, a student who is attending a feeder middle school will not be automatically placed at a requested school because of a Special Transfer or Appeal Form. Unless the student is accepted into a specialized program, the priority enrollment goes to assigning the student to their home resident school.Can students from outside of the district apply to a LBUSD high school?Students who currently attend a middle school and reside outside of the district, but would like to attend a LBUSD school must apply for an Inter-District Permit (IDP) through the High School Office (1515 Hughes Way).
