Parents get another chance to voice concerns over school assignment plan

Community meetings where parents and staff can give their feedback on new student school assignment boundaries and feeder patterns may be over, but it's not the last opportunity to give your opinions.

The San Francisco Unified School District held four organized community meetings immediately following the release of attendance areas for elementary schools under the student assignment system approve in March.

Meetings were held in the Bayview, Outer Sunset, Mission and the Marina, but for parents who could not make those, there’s another opportunity. All next week the district is allowing small groups to meet with officials for up to 20 minutes.

Appointments can be made by emailing for a slot at devlinn@sfusd.edu

District spokeswoman Gentle Blythe said with any change there is a lot of feedback and most often that feedback comes from those with concerns.

The draft attendance areas and feeder patterns will be discussed one more time by the Board of Education’s ad hoc committee on student assignment Sept. 13. The final vote on these draft proposals is expected at the full board’s Sept. 28 regular meeting.
