Now that we have official and final results from the SFUSD about the new boundaries, and everyone should be set on which is their neighborhood school, why would you continue to tour a million places? It seems like a lot of friends of mine THINK they need to, but the only instances I can think of to do so are:
1. If your neighborhood school is likely to be impacted. Alvarado, I'm looking at you (and many others).
2. If you live in a CTIP1 area.
3. You have your heart set on, or at least want to investigate further, immersion or K-8 schools
Of course, if you are applying to a ton of privates, that's another story. Of course you're still going to tour.
Luckily (?), we live in an area where our local school is not impacted. We will tour there, as well as the two local Spanish immersion schools, and the one neighborhood K-8. Maybe one more K-8 that's a touch further than I want to go, but would be do-able. Still, that is only five tours- six if we do one private, just to see. What about you? Do you still plan to tour everywhere, or does that seem so 2009? Also, if you are a two-parent family, do both parents go on all tours? We are planning that, but the logistics are often difficult, and I'm wondering if other families try different arrangements.
