Proposed School Boundaries Released
SFUSD went toward a more neighborhood/geographic based assignment for next years's class. The Board passed the proposal earlier this year, but the proof is in the boundaries which was just released on Wednesday. What do you think about the new school boundaries. We live in a good area but it may not matter since we are looking to apply for a Mandarin immersion program. The information was really hard to find, but here's the link http://sfusd.ggnet.net/resources/changes.php
This will impact entering elementary and middle school students. Even though we are moving toward a more geographic based assignment process, our schools are supposed to be more diverse. Students will be commuting less and at least parents will know where there children are going to school.
I have one friend who has taken her child out of her assigned school so he can stay in the wait pool for the school they want. If they don't get off the wait pool then it looks like he may miss the first week or more of school waiting to get off the wait pool. This new system would hopefully stop this limbo from happening.
