Ad Hoc Committee on Student Assignment

Board of Education Members: Dr. Emily Murase, Chair; Matt Haney; Rachel Norton

Staff Liaison: Orla O'Keeffe, Chief of Policy and Operations, and Rosina Tong, Executive Director, Educational Placement Center


The Board of Education’s student assignment policy (P5101), originally approved in March 2010 and modified a number of times since, is intended to work in alignment with other District initiatives that are designed to:

  • reverse the trend of racial isolation and the concentration of underserved students in the same school;
  • provide equitable access to the range of opportunities offered to students; and
  • provide transparency at every stage of the assignment process.

Each year, the Board of Education’s Ad Hoc Committee on Student Assignment hosts a series of public working meetings with staff to monitor SFUSD’s student assignment policy.  This page has information about the monitoring process that will occur during the 2017-18 school year.

Additional information can be found via the following links.

2017-18 Meeting Dates, Agendas, and Presentations

During the 2017-18 school year, the Board will host three public working sessions with staff to explore policy questions related to a sustainable student assignment system that’s aligned with Vision 2025.

We invite and encourage families and members of the community to attend these public Board-staff working sessions.  The public is invited to give input at each meeting.  Interpretations in Spanish and Chinese will be provided at each meeting.

Great things are happening for our kids in San Francisco public schools.
