The "Swap" Explained

This was posted on SFUSDs website yesterday.

I'm more confused with the lottery process at this point than I was when I started the search for a school.
Good luck to everyone entering round two

Good Luck All!

Just wanted to say good luck to everyone still reading this blog. I know the blog pretty much died thanks to a few crazy commenters. Today and tomorrow there will be a lot of joy and a lot of disappointment. Let's hope we can all see the light at the end of the tunnel and keep on keeping on!

Please post in the comments your results if you're willing to share.

Student Assignment 2011 - Final Report

Rachel Norton posted this on her blog
Its the final report of 2011s new student assignment system from SFUSD

Lots of data and interesting reading. I'm glad it is out before the lottery results are due in next week.

Transitional Kindergarten Update from SFUSD website

TK is being offered for 2012 - 2013 at Havard or McLaren Early Education schools

Here is the a cut and paste from the SFUSD website, the full notice is here

In mid-January, the Governor proposed eliminating funding and the mandate for Transitional Kindergarten as part of his state budget proposal. The legislature is required by law to adopt its budget by July 1 of each year. Given the uncertainty of whether or not California is going to fund and continue to mandate Transitional Kindergarten, SFUSD will offer TK at Havard Early Education School and McLaren Early Education School to students who are born between November 2 and December 2, 2007.

At this time the SFUSD Educational Placement Center is accepting applications from parents who wish to enroll their child in a TK program at these two sites. SFUSD will guarantee a TK placement at one of these two schools. If these schools become fully enrolled, SFUSD will offer every eligible student a TK placement at another SFUSD Early Education school.

Next Steps for Parents interested in TK at Havard or McLaren Early Education schools:

Please submit your application for TK by May 25, 2012. Notification of assignment will be mailed out to families by June 1, 2012.
