How to Accept or Decline Your Main Round Assignment

How to Accept or Decline

Congratulations on your new school assignment! Your new school is excited to welcome you.  

SPECIAL NOTE: If you received an assignment letter stating that you have been automatically enrolled, you do not need to Accept; SFUSD will automatically enroll you in your assigned school.

For all other students, please follow these instructions.

You may accept or decline your school assignment in one of three ways:

  • Using ParentVUE
  • By emailing a completed copy of the Response Form
  • Dropping of your Response Form at an EPC office

If you plan to attend any SFUSD school in 2023-24, we strongly suggest that you accept your Main Round assignment. This is because there are many fewer spaces available in Round 2. If you prefer another school, you can apply in Round 2 after accepting your assignment. There is no advantage in future rounds if you decline your assignment.

To Accept or Decline Using ParentVUE

  1. Go to and choose ParentVUE.
  2. Click “Online Forms” on the upper right-hand corner.
