Student enrollment at San Leandro Unified School District was in a downward spiral, and so was their funding. The district needed a way to stabilize enrollment in order to pay teachers, fund programs, and provided much needed services to their students to promote success. With the current enrollment process, families would be lined up outside for hours trying to enroll their children. Neighboring districts were taking students through interdistrict transfer, simply because the process was too inaccessible and time-consuming. School administrators decided to make increasing student enrollment a primary goal and began the redesign process.
