March Placement Period

March Placement

The March Placement Period deadline has passed and we are no longer taking applications.

What is the March Placement Period?

The March Placement Period is the first of several placement "rounds". The SFUSD student assignment system uses choice as a way to help create equitable, diverse learning environments. Students applying for a SFUSD school submit a ranked list of choices, and the system assigns students based on available seats. All students who want to apply for a SFUSD school in 2020-21 must submit an application.

What if I am not satisfied with my March Placement assignment?

The deadline for May Placement has passed, and we are no longer accepting May Placement application forms. If you wish to apply for a different school assignment, you may participate in the Wait Pool or Open Enrollment process.
