The clock continues to tick down.
There is just over a week left until applications for fall 2011 enrollment in San Francisco Unified School District middle schools are due.
To help parents all over The City to have the list of preferred middle schools given to the district by the 5 p.m. deadline on Feb. 18, satellite collection sites will be set up at a number of schools over the next week.
Starting Wednesday, sites will be open from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Dr. Charles Drew Elementary School in the Bayview neighborhood and McCoppin Elementary School in the Richmond neighborhood to let parents drop off applications.
Then on Feb. 10, a satellite collection site will be open from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Sheridan Elementary School in the Oceanview neighborhood and Jean Parker Elementary school in the North Beach neighborhood to collect applications.
On Monday, Feb. 14, applications will be able to be turned in from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Daniel Webster Elementary School in the Potrero Hill neighborhood and finally on Wednesday, Feb. 16, parents can turn in applications at Francis Scott Key Elementary School in the Sunset neighborhood.
Parents can continue to drop off applications at the district’s Education Placement Center, located at 555 Franklin Street. Placement letters will be sent to families in March.
This is the first year the new student assignment guidelines will be used when placing students. The new guidelines were adopted in March 2010 and are expected to give a student's address more weight in placement.
