The San Francisco Unified School District is reaching out to parents to help create elementary-to-middle-school pathways.

The district has been trying to give parents and students an idea where they will go to middle school based on what elementary school they attend. The district is also looking to ensure “quality middle schools” by extending language programs and other programs. Plans for these expansions will also be a topic of discussion at parent meetings.

The pathways are part of the new student assignment system approved last March. Parents turned in applications for the first time under the new system last month.

Draft pathways were released in February.

Before finalizing a list, though, the district is holding public meetings at each middle school. This week, meetings will be held Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at Aptos Middle School, located at 105 Aptos Ave.; Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Roosevelt Middle School, located at 460 Arguello Blvd.; and Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at Everett Middle School, located at 450 Church St.

District officials hope to finalize pathways by May.
