School district’s enrollment fair on Saturday

The school district’s enrollment fair for families and students getting ready to choose which schools they want to attend is on Saturday.

The first deadline for applications that allow up to seven school options is January 9.

Parents and students will be able to talk to principals from all over the district and attend workshops with topics that include the transition to kindergarten and how to enroll special education students.

Superintendent Carlos Garcia called it a “one-stop shop’’ for parents where they can see what many schools have to offer without having to tour all of them.

Last year about 10,000 families went to the annual fair, according to the district.

It starts at 9 a.m. at the Concourse Exhibition Center at 620 Seventh St.

Because the future of San Francisco’s school assignment system remains unknown, this could be one of the last years that guardians and students will be able to list their preferences from any school in the district.
