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.

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.
