Central Registration Parent Conference

On July 17, 2019, a very informative and constructive dialogue on Central Registration reform was held with parents. A shared value in growing greater Access, Equity, Opportunity, and Quality (AEOQ) across the system was evident in the room. A presentation by Associate Superintendent Eric Rosser included the complexities for Central Registration unique to an urban district like Buffalo, such as school choice, criterion-based schools, and annual demand of processing about 20,000 applications. The Power Point that was presented can be viewed here: Central Registration Parent Conference. The following ideas for reform were discussed:

  • Electronic application process

  • Need for clear and transparent policies, accessible and ongoing communication

  • Central Registration website page upgrade with top notch marketing

  • Social media page

  • Press event to inform parents on dates and registration process

  • Clear, welcoming, and positive acceptance letters

  • 5 minute instructional video on how to register your child

  • Neighborhood radius maps

Thanks to all parents who participated, as well as, Associate Superintendent Eric Rosser and Assistant Superintendent Tonja Williams. A Task Force of parents, staff, and relevant community stakeholders will convene in August to further address Central Registration reform.
