BPS SY1819 School Demand Report Introduction

Thank you for viewing the BPS Demand Report for the 2018-2019 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 2018-2019 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:
5
6
Capacity (P1)Number of total seats in specific school and program as determined after the first registration period. Note that capacities often change between registration periods so there may be situations where the number of assigned students is higher than the final capacity.# Student on waitlist After P1Total number of students on the waitlist for the school/program/grade after the first registration period. These numbers are as of 4/1/18 and subject to change.
7

Situation is which students are guaranteed seats includes students moving up a grade in the same school/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 period.
8
Open SeatsNumber of seats available to students who were not guaranteed seats from the previous year. The number of open seats is equal to the capacity minus the number of seats guaranteed to students from the previous year.# Total Ranks (P1)Number of families who ranked the school/program/grade any number on their choice forms during the first registration period.

As an example, let's take a look at the row for 6th grade General Education program at the Mario Umana Academy.

This indicates that the Umana 6th Grade General Education program had a final capacity of 140 students. There were 67 students guaranteed seats in that program due to the Umana being a K-8 school which left 73 open seats.

In the first registration period 164 students ranked the Umana 6th Grade General Education program 1st, 2nd, or 3rd on their choice forms and 169 students ranked it any number. In the second registration period 2 students ranked the Umana 6th Grade General Education, both in the top three.

After the first registration period, 139 students were assigned to the Umana 6th Grade General Education program; after the second registration period, 140 students were assigned to the Umana 6th Grade General Education program; and after the 3rd registration period 148 students were assigned to the Umana 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.

Since the Umana's 6th grade General Education program was filled after the second registration period and students were assigned to other schools that they ranked below the Umana, 37 students currently sit on the waitlist for the Umana's 6th grade General Education Program.
