It's time to plan for 2016-17

In San Josť Unified, the winter season also is the time of year to plan for the upcoming school year. The school district has an array of events and resources available to guide current and new parents as they make decisions for the 2016-17 school year. Here's a quick checklist for you:
  • Parents of students entering the secondary level as well as parents of all new students are welcome to visit the school district's Enrollment Center as they begin the enrollment process.  
  • Are you interested in the school district's three magnet schools? Check out this calendar, which offers you a number of events you can attend to learn more about the schools. There's also an orientation that interested parents need to attend. Be on the lookout for the day and time.  
  • If you are the parent of a rising 6th grader, don't miss out on the school district's Middle School Information Night. Only in its second year, this event brings all of San Josť Unified's middle schools together under one roof. Come learn more about what makes each middle school special and which program is the best for the individual needs of your child. You are also welcome to visit the schools during events at their own campus.
