How to Navigate BUSD Wait Lists
Hi everyone, we are new to Berkeley and could really use some advice/feedback based on any personal experience people have had. We are moving to Berkeley late (in June) to allow our daughter to finish kindergarten before we come. Unfortunately this will be her fourth school in four years once we're in Berkeley (day cares before kindergarten), and we really want to avoid having her switch schools again once we're there. Because of that, we're trying to understand if there's anything we can do to come off a wait list by the start of the school year (assuming we end up on one). There are two schools in our zone nearby our new house, and one that is quite a distance away. They're all good schools, but our daughter will feel much more comfortable being closer to home given the new environment. Any advice on the right people to talk to or the right things to think about would be very much appreciated!
