  • Charter Schools


    The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) views charter schools as integral to the District's offerings and an opportunity to teach both students and educators. Currently, there are 277 charter schools (53 Affiliated, 224 Independent) under the jurisdiction of the LAUSD, serving more than 138,000 students in kindergarten through 12th grade. 

    There are two types of charter schools in the district: Conversion and Start-up. A conversion charter is an existing district school that later becomes a charter. A start-up is a charter school that is created "from scratch" by any member of the public - educators, parents, foundations and others. These charters can be fully independent or district-affiliated, which have closer ties to the district. Both must have their board-approved charter proposal, and both are held to a high level of accountability.  There are 102 schools in LAUSD that offer these programs.

  • Magnet Program Schools


    The LAUSD Magnet Program is a court-ordered voluntary integration opportunity available to all students in grades K-12 who live within the boundaries of LAUSD. The purpose is to provide an integrated educational and personal experience which prepares them to function in a diverse society, and helps to eliminate, reduce or prevent long-standing patterns of racial isolation. Each Magnet’s openings are determined by the need to maintain a racially balanced enrollment and by available space. Only gifted, high ability, highly gifted Magnets require specific eligibility criteria. No other screening, including grades, placement tests or auditions may be used as criteria for admitting or eliminating students.

    The LAUSD Magnet Program offers specialized courses or curricula designed to attract students based on their interests while stressing academic excellence, cooperative/experiential learning, interdisciplinary coursework, and peer collaboration. The LAUSD Magnet Program is comprised of both Magnet schools and Magnet centers. Magnet schools occupy entire school campuses (i.e. Francisco Bravo Medical Magnet High School); Magnet centers are co-located on a regular school campus with access to activities and experiences shared with the host school (i.e. Millikan Middle School Performing Arts Magnet). Some schools host as many as three Magnet centers on their school campus (i.e. Van Nuys High School Medical Magnet; Math, Science and Technology Magnet and Performing Arts Magnet).
