Applications to enroll students in public schools for the 2023-2024 academic year are now open. Starting this year, the Latino Task Force will help residents through the process. 

Spanish-speaking enrollment counselors will be at the Latino Task Force (LTF) Hub every Wednesday through the end of November, as well as Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Educational Placement Center Office at 1520 Oakdale Ave. through December. 

It’s a confusing process for all, but it’s essential to getting into the school of your choice. 

“Through this partnership, we hope to engage our families with our youngest learners and work to ensure they submit applications on time,” said Danielle Uttley, an enrollment counseling manager with the school district.  

In addition, several in-person enrollment workshops will take place over the coming weeks.

English, Chinese, and Spanish:

Nov. 8 at Visitacion Valley Elementary School, 6 to 7:30 p.m.
