This brief explores the residence and school enrollment patterns of students and families in the Mission Promise Neighborhood (MPN) service population; that is, families living within the established MPN boundaries or San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) students who live elsewhere in the city but are enrolled in one of the four MPN focus schools. The findings from the brief are meant to aid the Mission Economic Development Agency in developing strategies for identifying and recruiting families in need of services and considering the service provider partners who may be best able to serve these families. Using SFUSD student records from the 2011-12 school year, Gardner Center reseachers investigated where in San Francisco students enrolled in the focus schools lived. School enrollment of students living outside of MPN boundaries was examined to understand the demographic differences between students enrolled in focus schools versus those enrolled in other SFUSD schools.
