Applications for the 2015-16 TIE-INS (Together In Education In Neighborhood Schools) Program are being accepted through April 1, 2015. Now in its seventh year, as an initiative developed at the Chancellor’s behest by the UCLA Graduate School of Education & Information Studies (GSE&IS), the program enables children of UCLA employees to attend four public schools close to campus: Nora Sterry Elementary School, Brockton Avenue Elementary School, Emerson Middle School, and University High School. Preference will be given to kindergartners and first-graders (and their elementary school-aged siblings) and acceptance will be based on priorities established by Deans and Vice Chancellors.
All UCLA academic appointees and career (non-probationary) staff at any classification level are eligible to apply to participate in the program. For employees who need access to a computer or the Internet to complete an application, computers are available at Center X in GSE&IS, as well as in Housing & Hospitality Services, General Services, or Campus Human Resources, Suite 200, Wilshire Center.
The TIE-INS Program will be of particular importance to UCLA employees interested in having their children attend nearby schools. For more information, you can participate in one of the onsite tours and information sessions being offered by the four participating schools. Get all the details, including an online application, at the TIE-INS website.
