If anyone plans to apply for a magnet school for next year, please note that the deadline to get in your CHOICES application (available in every school office) has been moved up this year to BEFORE WINTER BREAK. The deadline is December 18, 2009.
In the past, the deadline was in January, after the break. This change may take many people by surprise. Magnet tours are happening NOW so if you are interested, time to get crackin'!
Also, due to budget cuts, LAUSD will not be holding the CHOICES Faire that was previously held each year at UCLA in November. So you are on your own to research the schools -- call the offices and ask about tours now.
Good luck playing those odds. CHOICES is almost as fun as Vegas!
