I understand that many districts in Massachusetts do not assign schools based upon address and I understand the social reasons why. However, if you are going to have school choice, you need to be able to do so in a timely manner. Yes, I know I didn’t register until July but that was because I didn’t move here until July. Registrations in July must be down to a trickle and by then, you should be able to do them on the fly.
Today, I was informed that my son would not receive his school assignment until the week before school starts because they haven’t done the July registrations yet. Unfreakingbelievable.
I have a job offer… I think. But I can’t accept it unless I can work out arrangements for my children and that means before/after school care for my oldest if I work. How can I do that if I don’t know what school he will be attending?
This is insane. Just insane. I am so frustrated I could cry.
