Verification of Eligibility Process for Late Applications
Applicants to the Kennedy Gifted Medical Magnet or School for Advanced Studies program must meet at a minimum one of three eligibility criteria.
L.A. UNIFIED APPLICANTS
The student's CURRENT SCHOOL of attendance completes the verification of eligibility process.
Verification forms are NOT required for students currently enrolled in LAUSD (except LAUSD independent charter schools). For District applicants, this will involve communication between the two District schools (Gifted Magnet or SAS site AND student’s current school of attendance).
To expedite the process, please notify your school's GATE coordinator that you have a late application pending and request that they begin their internal approval process.
PRIVATE SCHOOL, INDEPENDENT CHARTER, AND NON-L.A. UNIFIED APPLICANTS
If/when a Gifted Magnet/SAS site contacts the late applicant about an available seat, verification must be provided at that time.
For non-district applicants, the parent/guardian must request that the non-district school complete the applicable Verification of Eligibility form and submit it via email directly to Kennedy's magnet coordinator Mandy Arentoft (email@example.com)
