BPS SY1718 School Demand Report Introduction

Thank you for viewing the BPS Demand Report for the 2017-2018 Registration Season! The information provided on this sheet will give you a better sense of which schools and programs were ranked the most frequently during the registration period for the 2017-2018 school year. You can use this information to find out the approximate chances your student has to get into the school and program of your choice; your child will have a better chance of being assigned to a school with many open seats and fewer applicants than a school with few open seats and many applicants.

Below are definitions for all the columns on the following charts:

6
Capacity (P3)Number of total seats in specific school and program as determined after the third registration round. Note that capacities often change between rounds so there may be situations where the number of assigned students is higher than the final capacity.# Student on waitlist After P3Total number of students on the waitlist for the school/program/grade after the third registration round.
7
Seats guaranteed to studentsNumber of students who have been guaranteed seats from the previous year in the school/program/grade. Situation is which students are guaranteed seats includes students moving up a grade in the same school and program and students moving to their pathway schools.# Top 3 Ranks (P1)Number of families who ranked the school/program/grade either 1st, 2nd, or 3rd on their choice forms during the first registration round. Please note that with a few small exceptions the first registration period was only open to K0, K1, K2, 6th, and 9th graders.
8

As an example, let's take a look at the row for 6th grade General Education program at the Timilty Middle School:
14
15
16
17
18
This indicates that the Timilty 6th Grade General Education program had a final capacity of 93 students. There were 77 students guaranteed seats in that program due to the Timilty being the pathway school for the Hale, Blackstone, and Mendell which left 16 open seats.

In the first registration period 65 students ranked the Timilty 6th Grade General Education program 1st, 2nd, or 3rd on their choice forms and 88 students ranked it any number. After the first registration period 81 students were assigned to the Timilty 6th Grade General Education program. The number of students assigned may be smaller than the total capacity, even in this case when the school had many more applicants than open seats, due to students who were guaranteed seats selecting to apply to other programs or students who ranked the program getting a program they ranked higher on their choice form.

In the second registration period 19 students ranked the Timilty 6th Grade General Education program 1st, 2nd, or 3rd on their choice forms and 29 students ranked it any number. After the second registration period 90 students were assigned to the Timilty 6th Grade General Education program.

And after the third registration period 93 students were assigned to the Timilty 6th Grade General Education program with 3 students placed onto the waitlist.
