The Daily Journal is keeping an eye on the SMUSHD deliberations about when and where to allow high school kids to transfer between schools in the district here. The two interesting bits from a B'game perspective are
District enrollment is projected to increase by more than 1,400 students by 2022. But most of that growth is happening in the southern part of the district where many of the recently approved intra-district transfers take place. By contract, students in San Bruno and Millbrae, where growth has been stagnant, haven’t moved throughout the district as freely.
I'm thinking Heather meant "by contrast" instead of "by contract" and the spell checker let it through. The relative desirability is interesting too
Over the last two years, the district received 949 requests to change schools and granted 526. Of the requests, most students were looking to attend — in order of most requests — San Mateo’s Aragon, Burlingame and Hillsdale high schools or Mills High School in Millbrae. Requests for Capuchino and San Mateo high schools were both under 60 for the two years.
