I'm among the anxious crew of parents counting the days until we receive our Round I decision letter for K from SFUSD. In today's Chronicle article on the district decision to increase K enrollment to 22, I found this tidbit at the end intriguing and hopeful:
"District officials are considering reopening a school by this fall - something unheard of even a year or two ago when declining enrollment meant empty classrooms and possible school closures.
Garcia said the former De Avila Elementary School at 1351 Haight St. is one option. The site had been leased to City College in the past. 'It's in a very central place for us," he said, adding that a new school could offer unique or in-demand programs that families would want.'"
This seems like a great idea for a new discussion thread on your kfiles blog. E.g., Does anyone know more about this? On what basis will the district make this decision? It sounds like a great possibility to me so how can we best advocate for it/try to shape it? Another close-to-us Spanish immersion program would be music to my ears and to those of many families I know from the neighborhood!
