Help a grad student

Below is a request from a San Francisco State University graduate student who plans to conduct her master's thesis on the kindergarten application process. She's looking to connect with parents who are going through the kindergarten process this year. Please try to help her out.

SFUSD Kindergarten Applicants Survey
I am conducting a research study examining SFUSD school choice for
families with children eligible for 2009-2010 kindergarten enrollment.
This study will be examining the role of culture on the
decision-making process. Our study asks primary caregivers of
kindergarten applicants to complete a survey. The survey will take
approximately 20-minutes to complete.

I am recruiting participants who meet the following eligibility requirements:
1) must be at least 18 years of age, and
2) the parent or guardian of at least one child eligible for
kindergarten enrollment in the San Francisco Unified School District
(SFUSD) for the 2009-2010 school year.

To be screened for eligibility, please visit:

Once you are determined to be eligible, you will be prompted to begin
the first portion of the school choice survey. You may complete the
survey at your convenience.

All the information you provide will remain confidential and the
questionnaires will be identified through the use of identification
numbers, not names. Upon completion of the study, all survey will be
destroyed and in no way will your participation in this study affect
the outcomes of your kindergartner's school assignment. I am
conducting a research study in an attempt to understand the
decision-making process for parents of SFUSD kindergarten applicants.

I hope you will participate.

If you have any questions, please contact me, Kathryn Riel, by e-mail
at I will be happy to answer any questions you may
