How to Accept or Decline

When you receive your school assignment letter, you must accept or decline your assignment by June 18, 2021. Families who do not respond by June 18 will not be enrolled for school next year. SFUSD recommends that you accept your assignment even if you apply for a different school (see below). We recommend that you only decline if you do not plan on attending SFUSD.

You can accept or decline online in ParentVUE (see steps below) or by paper using the response form that was mailed with your assignment letter.

You can still decline your assignment after June 18 in ParentVUE (see steps below) or by emailing

  • The Wait Pool is a request for one school. Wait Pool requests are granted from August 16 through September 3 if openings exist for the requested schools. Learn more about Wait Pool.
  • Open Enrollment is immediate enrollment into a school with openings and no Wait Pool requests. Enrollment is granted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Learn more about Open Enrollment.
