    Incoming Inter-District Permit (Entering LAUSD)
    Students may be granted to attend a school in the LAUSD, instead of their District of Residence. These types of permits are processed by the Office of Permits and Student Transfers and require release from the District of Residence and acceptance by the desired LAUSD school.

    The incoming inter-district permit application period is open all year long, starting on February 1st for the following school year. Applications must be submitted online. Paper applications will not be accepted. 
     
    Families requesting an incoming inter-district permit should not check out of their current school/District of Residence until final approval has been granted. LAUSD schools, at their discretion, may provisionally enroll incoming students if space is available. Enrollment is prioritized for resident LAUSD students. 
     
    Please contact your District of Residence to inquire about independent study options.
