Wait Pool Process

If you would like to continue to participate in the assignment process or would like to apply for a higher-choice school, you may submit a Wait Pool Form for ONE SCHOOL for the Wait Pool Process by May 24, 2017 (Round 3), July 21, 2017 (Round 4), or by August 11, 2017 (Round 5).  Applications submitted for the Wait Pool process will stay active for all assignment runs conducted in July, August, and until the end of the enrollment process which ends on September 1, 2017. The Wait Pool process will be conducted in June through August, prior to the beginning of school, and continue throughout the first two weeks of school as openings occur.

Any assignment offer to any wait pool school will be final and the process will end. In other words, if you receive an assignment into the school listed on the Wait Pool Form, you may not apply for any other schools. Additionally, any previous school assignment will be canceled if an assignment can be offered from the Wait Pool. There will be no opportunity to choose between the previous school and the Wait Pool assignment offer.

This Wait Pool request will remain active in all Wait Pool assignment runs. To cancel this request, please email the EPC by May 24, 2017 (Round 3), July 21, 2017 (Round 4), or August 11, 2017 (Round 5) at

Once an assignment for the wait pool school is offered, there will be no opportunity to return to the previous school.

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