From L.A. Times by Carla Rivera:
The Los Angeles Unified School District began accepting applications for magnet schools and other programs for the 2012-13 school year Tuesday -- but forms will not be mailed home this year.

Instead, parents are being encouraged to apply online. The district created a new, web-based system at that will provide access to a variety of online tools, such as enrollment and transfer forms, meal and medical programs, emergency card updates, magnet program applications and other services.
