The SFUSD enrollment paperwork can be maddening. I envy my friends in Phoenix who have online enrollment (click here for website). Checking school enrollment resources on the Internet, I found many school districts nationwide offer online enrollment. But not SFUSD...
Why is SFUSD, with its proximity to Silicon Valley, still in the dark ages of school enrollment processes? Shuffling papers, losing papers, manually entering data (once!), and blaming the computer for "glitches."
Can you imagine what it would be like if the staff at 555 Franklin did not accidently lose your second page of school choices? Did not accidently separate your twins' application forms? Did not accidently miscode your language immersion? Did not accidently repeat Flynnarado (a third time)?!
Can you imagine what it would be like changing or amending your school choices right up until the last day without looking for parking or waiting in line? Or getting updated waitlist numbers instantly so that you could make more informed choices, without yet another phone call or trip to EPC?
Can you imagine a world where SFUSD got it right the first time without human error?
