New student assignment system up for approval 

Implementation of the City school’s new student assignment system is expected to be approved Tuesday night during the regular school board meeting.

The San Francisco Unified School District introduced the neighborhood boundaries for elementary schools and feeder patterns students would take to middle school in August.

Following a large volume of response from parents and community members over the proposals, school Superintendent Carlos Garcia recommended the district take another year to adjust the proposed the middle school feeder patterns.

Though Garcia said he recognized not all parties involved will be pleased with the final outcome, he said that one more year would allow further discussions with parents.

In the meantime, students headed to the sixth grade in the 2011-12 school year will be able to apply to their school of choice. Much like with the current student assignment system, preference will be given to siblings and those coming from schools with low test scores.
