Ad Hoc Committee on Student Assignment

Ad Hoc Committee on Student Assignment


The Ad Hoc Committee on Student Assignment is a subcommittee of the Board of Education. In 2021-22, the Ad Hoc Committee on Student Assignment hosted a series of public working meetings with staff to monitor SFUSD’s new zone-based student assignment policy for elementary schools that was approved by the Board in December 2020. Additional information about the process for developing a new elementary school assignment policy can be found at

In September 2022, the district announced the decision to extend the implementation timeline for the new elementary student assignment policy by one year, to 2026-27. READ MORE . The Ad Hoc Committee on Student Assignment is not meeting during the 2022-23 school year.
