Independent Kindergarten Application Process Questions
Hi Fellow Parents,
We are navigating the private elementary school admissions process in the East Bay as first timers. We decided to apply to private schools late in the game and have generally been feeling unprepared and overwhelmed. We have the applications mostly finished and are starting to think about next steps - the Parent Interviews and virtual student assessments. I didn't think much about this for some of the virtual tours and Q&A sessions, but I have attended almost all of them alone. My partner's job is not very flexible and requires him to be in person during quarantine, and if the session was at night, the only way for me to pay attention and learn anything is if he is watching our two young boys in another room. I can't tell if I'm simply getting googling anxiety, or if the fact that I was the only present is a problem/something I should explain through the next steps of the application process? I will do my best to make sure that he can attend any of the parent interviews, but there is a chance he will have an urgent call out and not be able to make it.
1) Does anyone have general advice for the parent interviews/next steps in the application process?
2) Has anyone been in a similar situation with parent availability? Did you explain it to the admissions teams?
