Please consult with the school directly for details and enrollment procedures.

After applying, you will receive an email regarding your TIE-INS enrollment status between April 13-30.

STEP 2. Obtain an LAUSD Permit

This process begins once you are accepted into the TIE-INS program.

Apply for an LAUSD intra-district permit form at your home school. An administrator will need to sign and approve your transfer request, both from your home school and from the TIE-INS school. You can find your home school here.

Please call your home school before heading over to ensure the school has copies of the intra-district permit paperwork.

There is no online process for intra-district permits.

Apply for an incoming LAUSD Inter-District Permit allowing your child(ren) to transfer from your home district to LAUSD. It is highly recommended that you begin this process with your home district office as soon as possible.

Steps to secure an inter-district permit

A valid inter-district permit releasing you from your home district is required to complete enrollment at a TIE-INS school. The LAUSD online application window for inter district permits is February 1st – April 30th annually.

STEP 3. Enroll at your TIE-INS School

Pick-up LAUSD enrollment materials from the TIE-INS program office or satellite locations. Information regarding pick-up locations will be sent via email to all applicants (check website for specific dates by school).

Add your completed intra-district permit paperwork to your TIE-INS enrollment packet.

When your home district releases your child to LAUSD, upload the home district release to complete the LAUSD online process.

You will receive notification from LAUSD that your inter district process is complete.
