New date: Student assignment system redesign meeting

Following is from SFUSD:

The Board of Education is redesigning the student assignment system for fall 2010 to support the goals and objectives of SFUSD's strategic plan - Beyond the Talk: Taking Action to Educate Every Child Now. SFUSD has heard from thousands of parents and other community members regarding their experience, concerns and suggestions for student assignment. Families consistently report wanting quality schools and a fair and equitable system that is easy to understand.

On Thursday, February 12, 2009, the Board of Education was scheduled to convene a Committee of the Whole meeting to review simulations of different options for a new student assignment system. SFUSD plans to develop and share options that are informed by past lessons learned and shaped by the District's core values as presented in the strategic plan.

The model simulations will not be ready by February 12, 2009, and therefore the Board is moving the schedule forward by a month. Instead of reviewing simulations for different options on February 12, 2009, the Board will review simulations for different options on March 9, 2009, and the Board plans to approve a new student assignment system in May 2009 rather than April 2009 as originally planned. The Board will hold a half hour meeting on February 12, 2009, from 6:00 pm to 6:30 pm in the Board Room at 555 Franklin, to briefly provide an update on the process and timeline, and provide a limited amount of time for public input.

  1. The BOE web page is woefully out of date. Last set of meeting minutes is Oct. 14, 2008!

    C'mon BOE, now that your campaigning is over, let's get back to business.

  2. I heard this afternoon that supt garcia is announcing 500 teacher layoffs. Does anyone know if this announcement has been made? I haven't been able to find it anywhere....

  3. I've seen the layoff announcement, though I forget where. But here's the story: If there's ANY possibility that SFUSD won't be able to balance the budget without teacher layoffs, they're required by law to send pink slips by a certain date to the X number of teachers, as per worst-case scenario. Every time that has happened since I've been paying attention, either none or far fewer than the pink-slipped total were actually laid off. This is a major financial crisis -- I'm not glossing that over -- but just clarifying the procedure.

  4. I'm not sure why the web site is so out of date and I'll look into that. In the meantime, I am blogging after every meeting, here:

  5. Dear Rachel, I was not aware of your web site. I went there immediately, and I have already read many of your interesting stories. Also, I downloaded the survey for experiences in SFUSD inclusion programs. Thank YOU for the link! Keep up the good work.
