Attention Sac City Unified parents: the district will be holding a “Tour of Excellence” of district schools this Friday. This will be a good opportunity to tour any schools you’re considering for open enrollment; especially since you’ll have an extra week to wait on finding out if your kid will be getting in. Here is what the Open Enrollment page says about the timing of open enrollment acceptance and school registration:
Acceptance notifications will be mailed home (tentatively) by March 13, 2009. Upon notification, parents are required to complete student registration at the school of choice between Monday, March 16, 2009, and Friday, April 17, 2009.
Love that the District gets “tentatively” for their part but the parents have a hard date. As it turns out, the acceptance notifications probably won’t be mailed out until next week, according to the Open Enrollment office. So their “tentativeness” could cut into parents’ requirement by two full weeks.
