hello there,

we need to see a map with the exact boundaries of the school district
where Galileo Academy of Math and Science is.  I don't know the name
of that school district.  I need to know that first, and then find a
good map that shows the exact boundaries of that district.

Hello again timespacette-ga,

I assume that you?re asking about the school from your prior question
? Galileo Academy of Science and Technology. This high school is part
of the San Francisco Unified School District. Each school in the
district has a specified resident attendance area. I haven?t found any
special names for these other than the name of the school. The
attendance areas can be easily reviewed by using the interactive map
provided by SFUSD.

You didn?t ask this but, just in case, I want to alert you to the
stringent requirements of interdistrict transfer requirements for
attending Galileo. I?m providing you with the appropriate links from
the SFUSD website to help you review all aspects of attending a public
school in San Francisco and the requirements for enrolling in Galileo.

Thanks for directing your question to me. Best wishes for the boys?
move to San Francisco.

Interdistrict Transfer Requests 

If a student wishes to attend a San Francisco Public School and the
parent/guardian does not live in San Francisco, the parent/guardian
must obtain an interdistrict permit from their current public school
district of residence. The interdistrict transfer agreement permit is
required for anyone living outside of San Francisco who wishes to
attend or continue attending a San Francisco Public School. It is an
annual permit and must be on file for each school year.

Interdistrict transfers are granted on a space-available basis, and
SFUSD reserves the right to determine whether or not to accept
interdistrict transfer requests. SFUSD also reserves the right to
limit the number of incoming students as well as establish priorities
according to types of requests.

Please call the EPC at 415-241-6513 for additional information about
interdistrict enrollment.

hi czh -- and thanks again.

that third link down that has the attendance area boundaries is the
one I'm most interested in, but the problem is that it's very hard to
see exactly what streets constitute the boundary.  We are especially
interested in the western edge of that line.  Would it be possible for
you to figure out what streets this line follows just be looking at
this little map?  If I was more familiar with SF I think I could scope
it out, but it's a guess for me when I compare that to a street map of

I think they already have most of the other info that you have
provided, but I will forward this on to them anyway, just to be sure.

Hi timespacette-ga,

You say the map is small. I wonder if you discovered how to navigate
and zoom in with the SFUSD school district interactive map? You have
to click on the Map Navigator tool to activate the zoom function.

I suggest that you also open a separate window to Google Maps so you
can get a better view. Let me walk you through the Galileo attendance
boundaries street by street.

I hope this does the trick.
