School Zone blog procures BPS criteria schools admission details

Thanks to the Buffalo News team, the School Zone reporters have finally gotten some information from the District on how applications and admissions to the city’s criteria schools work. As I note on our “Applying to Schools Primer” page, actual information on how students are selected does not exist on the BPS website, at least not in any useful detail. (Which leaves applicants subject to endless rounds of speculation and neighborly rumor as to how it _ostensibly_ works.). Let’s hope Central Registration continues to work on spreading this information to all citizens and making the website user friendly. Then perhaps they can move on to improving customer service…

Here’s the link to the School Zone post:
