PWT is a court-ordered voluntary integration program available to residents of the Los Angeles Unified School District who live within a PWT sending school area. Parents may call (213) 241-6572 to verify if the applicant lives in a PWT sending area.
The PWT program provides students with integrated experiences by placing Hispanic, Black, Asian and Other Non-Anglo students in integrated school settings while providing opportunities for Other White (OW) students to attend Predominantly Hispanic, Black, Asian and Other Non-Anglo (PHBAO) schools. School assignments and availability are the responsibility of the District.
Provided that space continues to be available, PWT students may continue from elementary to middle to high school without reapplying. Also, when space is available, the PWT program will assign siblings to the same school if an application is submitted and the brother or sister is still enrolled. PWT students are enrolled in the regular school program and may take part in all programs and activities available to resident students. Parents are encouraged to participate in all school/community activities with transportation provided within Integration guidelines.
Parents wishing to apply for a PWT program must complete a Choices Application
and check the box indicating “PWT.” The application must be submitted on time. Please check the brochure or website for more information or call (213) 241-6572.
