the deadlines looms (December 16) for TUSD open enrollment.
I know a lot of people are still trying to make decisions about enrollment for Fall 14.
Would you be willing to answer questions about your kid’s school? If so, chime in here, in comments, or on the Facebook page, so that readers can contact you with questions (or post them publicly so that all can benefit).
There are no right answers for the choices–more “what is the best decision for my family based on what I know now about my kid and x school”.
Also, some of you are deciding between home school/magnet/charter/private, so talk about that here too, if you like.
I’m happy to talk about our experiences at Davis Bilingual Magnet, as well as our preschool experiences at Strauss ECE, Desert Spring, and St. Mark’s….

Love this girl….so much.

Great article by local dad/writer Tim Steller on vaccinations.
“Herd immunity” works in most cases, so that those who opt out of some/all vaccines for their kids don’t get sick kids–and hopefully don’t infect kids too young to be vaccinated even if their parents don’t oppose it.
But what happens when pockets of parents opt out of vaccinations? This happens in clusters, based on shared information, much of it inaccurate or at least unsubstantiated.
I’m hoping that any of you who wish to do so will post your reasons for opting out of some/all vaccinations, and others can respond, including many of our most-educated and well-read parents who make many other non-mainstream choices for their kids/family.
