Announcement Message

The Enrollment Center is excited to announce some changes to the application process for the 2025-26 school year (starting in October 2024, for students enrolling in the 2025-26 school year), aimed at making the enrollment process simpler, more transparent and more equitable. 

There are three key changes to next year’s enrollment process: 

  • Applicants only need to apply once, for the Main Round application deadline on January 31, 2025. We will not have a separate Round 2. Once Main Round assignments are announced in March 2025, applicants who did not receive their top choice school will get automatically placed onto waitlists for their top choice schools without having to re-apply. 
  • Applicants will be able to wait on several schools’ waitlists rather than having to pick just one waitlist choice.
  • Late applicants who do not apply before the Main Round deadline will be allowed to join the end of waitlists starting February 1 and placed into a school with open space in April.

More information about these changes can be found on our website: sfusd.edu/enrollmentrounds

Please stay tuned for more information in September and October about parent workshops. 

Feel free to reach out to us at enrollinschool@sfusd.edu if you have any other questions.
