Annual Review of Elementary Attendance Areas
In September 2010, the Board of Education approved the district’s elementary attendance areas after more than a year of demographic analysis and a public engagement process that included an evaluation of suggestions from the community. Throughout this development process, the following factors were taken into account: neighborhood demographics, where students live now and where enrollment changes are expected in the future; availability of school facilities; traffic patterns; location of programs; and coherence of preK-to-K and elementary-to-middle school pathways.
In the Spring of 2011, community members recommended the following changes to the elementary attendance area boundaries.
- Alvarado (Glen Park) - move boundary south from 29th to 30th street.
- Alvarado (Milk) - move boundary north nearer crest of hill.
- Grattan (McKinley) - move boundary east to include Upper Haight.
- Sloat (Miraloma) - move boundary north to include St. Francis Wood.
- Sunnyside (Miraloma) – move boundary north to include Sunnyside Playground and Sunnyside Conservatory.
- Parks (Sherman) – move boundary north of Geary Boulevard.
The red lines on the map below are the elementary attendance area boundaries approved by the Board in September 2010, and the blue lines are the six suggestions received from the community.
When reviewing the six recommendations received from the community, we considered the same factors taken into account when developing the attendance area boundaries approved by the Board in September 2010 (e.g., neighborhood demographics, where students live now and where enrollment changes are expected in the future, etc.).
From our analysis we reached the following conclusions.
- Alvarado’s attendance area should not be enlarged because the number of kindergarten applicants in 2011-12 exceeded the number of kindergarten seats in the attendance area. In addition, 50% of the seats at Alvarado are for the Spanish Immersion pathway and therefore the attendance area tie-breaker only applies to 50% of Alvarado’s seats.
- Grattan’s attendance area should not be enlarged to encompass some of McKinley’s attendance area because Grattan’s attendance area has more residents than seats; and McKinley’s attendance area should not be made smaller because it has fewer residents than seats.
- Both Sloat and Miraloma have more kindergarten residents than seats; therefore neither attendance area should be enlarged.
- Sherman’s attendance area should not be reduced to increase Parks’ attendance area because both attendance areas have fewer residents than seats. In addition, there are concerns about moving the Parks attendance area north of Geary since the high traffic patterns are considered a topographical barrier.
Modify Miraloma’s Attendance Area Boundary – 2013-14 School Year
At the August 28th 2012 public Board of Education meeting we presented a recommendation to modify Miraloma’s attendance area boundary as follows.
This recommendation was presented for Second Reading and action at the Board’s public meeting on September 11, 2012.
