Open Seats At Schools

Dear Readers

In an effort to help the families that are still waiting for an assignment or really hoping for an assignment that is a better fit for their family after the 3 - day count, can you post any openings you have observed at your school?  This is especially relevant for the K and 1st grade classrooms.  I will try to adjust moderation to allow anon comments, since this info is often sensitive.  Good luck and thank you to the community for offering some hope to the waiting families!

From a Reader: Synergy or Creative Arts Charter?

Help!!!! My child was accepted to both Synergy and Creative Arts Charter school. On paper they look almost identical. The only real difference is the ratio. Synergy having a little better 13:1 in Kindergarten and a foreign language is taught at Synergy. Please any thoughts?? I need help I just cant make the decision on my own I keep thinking I am going to make the wrong one even though it's a win win either way. Thank you!!

It's Monday - SFUSD starts in one week

Has anyone had an movement?  I understand there was a round 4.  Did anyone get a new assignment?  Has anyone decided to give up a spot at their public, private or parochial school last minute?

If you don't have a public school assignment and you are still holding out, what school are you waiting for and what is your back-up plan?

Wishing you the best!

Comments are now Newest First

I know, it's crazy.  Comments will now show newest to oldest.  I think it will take our brains some time to get used to it but hopefully over time it will help readers follow - especially when the comment list gets long.

We have also integrated with Disqus.  We encourage you to create a Disqus profile - Even it it's a pseudonym, whereby you can interact with the community, while still keeping your anonymity.  You can also use your G+, Facebook or Twitter identity to post.  Over time, this will help us get back to real-time commenting and greatly improve the quality of comments.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to LOTS of movement as we head into the 10-day count for SFUSD and the start of private and parochial school.
