Superintendent's Message

Now more than ever as we are engaged in distance learning to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it’s apparent how a child’s family is their first and most influential teacher. Just imagine what a difference it can make for a child when everyone is working together to make sure they have what they need to learn and grow. Every parent and guardian has a rich fund of knowledge about their child. I look forward to working together this year to provide the best educational experience for your children.
 
November Ballot Measures
This Election Day, San Franciscans will vote on Proposition J, which addresses a legal loophole to continue providing funds to SFUSD and Proposition 15, which would increase revenue for public education and other services. Learn more about these measures.
 
Digital Reading Resources in English and Spanish
Learn how to access these digital literacy resources in students’ Digital Backpacks. The SF Public Library emailed library card numbers to all SFUSD students on September 1. Students can choose eBooks from the library, and SFUSD librarians are compiling lists of suggested eBooks and audiobooks. 
 
In Person/Hybrid Learning Plans
SFUSD is actively preparing our school sites, having discussions with staff and monitoring health data closely so that when data and science suggest it is safe to do so, the district can begin to offer in-person options for students. Please read these Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding in-person/hybrid learning.
 
SF Loves Learning: Season 2

SFUSD's original educational television show has returned for a second season! Watch weekdays from 2-3 pm on KTVU Plus, and anytime on SFUSD YouTube.
The show provides daily culturally affirming academic, social emotional, movement, and creative content from SFUSD educators, students, families, and community partners.

 
Student Attendance and Participation Expectations During Distance Learning
As a reminder, when engaging in distance learning student participation and attendance can take multiple forms. Students are expected to actively participate in instruction, daily, as informed by their teachers.
