Monday, March 18 update: Letter arrived in this afternoon’s mail and we are happy with its contents. Click here for data on the assignment run.
7:30 p.m. update — mail arrived, but no SFUSD letter today. Monday . . .
I’ve gotten a number of questions on this so I thought I’d post a quick update — I was told by Educational Placement Center director Darlene Lim that 14,000 placement letters were mailed yesterday as promised. I am hearing that many people have not gotten a letter today — I am waiting for a 9th grade placement letter myself but as of 2:30 p.m. my mail carrier hasn’t arrived. I have a very anxious 8th grader I’m trying to keep occupied!
Usually the district does a press release and press conference with highlights of the run, and that did not occur yesterday as checking and preparing the mailing consumed all of the department’s time. I was told by Ms. Lim that they expect to have highlights ready for release on Monday.
Anyway, so far as I know, letters were mailed on time and people should be hearing very soon. Good luck, everyone!
