                                             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

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.

• Is transportation provided for students who are accepted
  into a Specialized Program or at a non-resident school?

  magnet or special program.

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).
