If you are a new kindergarten family for 2011 looking at public options, what's on your mind if you have CTIP2 status and have hesitations about your assignment boundary school? What do you think you might do over the next few months?
IMHO, there's no such thing as a bad answer to these questions at this point (although I have a feeling some others may disagree with me on that). Among people I know, reactions are all over the place. We are the first participants in this new experiment. As a PPS-SF representative put it at a recent kindergarten meeting, 10 years worth of school choice data under the old system is now out the window. No one knows how people will choose under the new system.
If you aren't sure about your CTIP1/CTIP2 status, you can check here (CTIP1 is in green). But if you aren't sure what your assignment boundary school is, it looks like you'll have to wait until November. The school district originally posted assignment boundary maps last month. But I just looked again a minute ago, and the maps page now says "When the new attendance areas for elementary schools are finalized, details will appear here. Please check back after November 11, 2010." So it looks like for some people, their school may change in the next month. Just gotta say...argh.
Update: The map from September, labeled "Final," is here. After some feedback and comments about the map issue, I called the district. They said that while many of the boundaries on the September map probably won't change much, there will probably be some changes to some areas, and the truly "final" version will be out in November. They didn't say which areas might undergo changes over the next month.
