Dear SFUSD Families:

 

In SFUSD, most school-based after school and summer learning programs are co-sponsored by SFUSD (the ExCEL program) and partnering community based organizations. The majority are funded through city, state and federal grants. These grants are often awarded in three to five long cycles and are not guaranteed to be renewed once a grant cycle has ended. Unfortunately, the district has recently learned that it lost $3.3 million in competitive federal grants to support our after school program services to families. Please note, this is not related to federal funding cuts to after school programs but rather due to not being awarded the competitive 21st Century Learning grant.

 

We understand how important after school and summer learning is and we are committed to preserving after school and summer program services. In order to ensure that services continue, we will be moving more SFUSD funds into subsidizing these services and also implementing a district wide co-payment fee structure for ALL ExCEL elementary/K-8  and middle after school programs. Some programs already have a fee structure in place. The co-payment fee structure will go into effect for school year 2017-2018. In anticipation of the need for a more sustainable funding model, the Board of Education approved the implementation of a co-payment fee structure in 2014 with its resolution titled After School for All.

 

Each school’s ExCEL after school programs will share more specifics but in general, here are the fee structure guidelines all programs will follow:

 

The monthly co-payment fee will be waived for a child who is: 1) eligible for free or reduced  lunch except those fees required by a local, state or federal tuition subsidy program; 2) homeless or; 3)  in foster care.

 

All other children will pay a co-payment fee on a sliding scal​​e from $50-$500/month based on income.

各位三藩市聯合校區家長:

 

在三藩市聯合校區,大多數校課後計劃和暑期學習計劃均由校區(ExCEL計劃)和社區夥伴機構聯合贊助。主要撥款乃來自市府、州和聯邦資助。這些資助通常以三至五個週期批出,但卻沒有保證每項資助在週期結束後能自動更新。很不幸,三藩市聯合校區最近得知,由於競爭劇烈,約有330萬用作支持我們課後計劃的聯邦撥款將被削去。請留意,這削減並非因聯邦減少對課後計劃撥款資助,而是因為我們未能獲得「21世紀學習補助金」這筆多人競逐的款項。

 

我們明白課後和暑期學習計劃的重要性,因此會致力保存我們現有的課後和暑期計劃服務。為確保服務繼續,我們會把更多校區資金投入和補貼這些服務,並在校區所有小學/幼 稚園-8年級學校及初中的ExCEL課後計劃中,實施共同付費方法。現時已有部分課後計劃 實施付費模式。有關共同付費方案將於2017-2018學年正式生效。為了將來的資助模式更 具持續性,教育委員會於2014年通過了題為“全民共享課後計劃”的議案,落實了共同支付的費用模式。

 

每間學校的ExCEL課後計劃收費均有其具體細節,但總的來說,它們將按照以下模式指引收費:

 

以下學生可豁免每月共同付費:1)符合校餐減免費用計劃學生,除非個別本地、州或聯邦之學費津貼計劃要求支付有關費用; 2)無家可歸學生; 3)寄養學生。

 

其餘所有學生一律按收入能力付費,每月由$50-$500不等。

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Estimadas Familias del SFUSD:

 

En el SFUSD, la mayoría de los programas escolares de aprendizaje después de clases y durante el verano son copatrocinados por el SFUSD (el programa ExCEL) y las organizaciones comunitarias. La mayoría se financia a través de subvenciones municipales, estatales y federales. Estas subvenciones a menudo se otorgan con una duración de tres a cinco ciclos largos y su renovación no se puede garantizar una vez que el ciclo de la subvención ha terminado. Infortunadamente, el distrito escolar recientemente descubrió que perdió 3.3 millones de dólares en subvenciones federales competitivas para apoyar nuestros servicios de programas después de clases, para las familias. Tenga en cuenta que esto no está relacionado con los recortes de fondos federales a programas después de clases, sino más bien debido a que no se le ha otorgado la subvención competitiva para el Aprendizaje del Siglo XXI.

 

Comprendemos lo importante que es el aprendizaje después de clases y durante el verano, y estamos comprometidos a preservar los servicios del programa después de clases y el de verano. Con el fin de asegurar que los servicios continúen, transferiremos más fondos del SFUSD para subsidiar estos servicios, y también implementaremos una estructura de copago con base en los ingresos, para todo el distrito escolar y todos los programas después de clases de ExCEL en primaria/K-8 y en la escuela intermedia. Algunos programas ya tienen en marcha una estructura de cuotas. La estructura de cuotas de copago entrará en vigor el año escolar 2017-2018. Advirtiendo la necesidad de un modelo de financiamiento más sostenible, en 2014 la Junta de Educación aprobó la implementación de una estructura para el copago de cuotas con su resolución titulada “programas después de clases para todos” (After School for All).

 

Los programas ExCEL después de clases en cada escuela compartirán más detalles, pero las directrices generales de la estructura de cuotas que todos los programas seguirán son:

 

La cuota de copago mensual no será aplicable para un estudiante que: 1) sea elegible para el comidas gratis o a precio reducido; excepto las cuotas requeridas por un programa de subsidio de cuotas local, estatal o federal; 2) sea indigente o esté sin hogar o; 3) esté bajo tutela temporal.

Todos los demás estudiantes pagarán una cuota de copago de una escala variable de $ 50 hasta  $ 500 mensuales con base en el ingreso.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Mahal na mga Pamilya ng SFUSD:

 

Sa SFUSD, itinataguyod ang karamihan sa mga nakabase sa paaralan na mga programang after school (ginagawa matapos ang regular na klase) at pag-aaral sa tag-araw o summer learning ng SFUSD (ang programang ExCEL) at ng mga katuwang na organisasyong nakabase sa komunidad. Pinopondohan ang karamihan sa mga ito ng mga grant o ibinibigay na pera ng lungsod, estado, o gobyernong pederal. Kadalasan, ibinibigay ang mga grant na ito sa loob ng mga siklo o takdang panahon na tatlo o limang taon, at walang garantiya na maibibigay ulit pagkatapos ng siklo. Sa kasamaang palad, napag-alaman kamakailan ng distrito na nawala na ang $3.3 milyon na pinagkokompetensiyahang pederal na grant, na sumusuporta sa mga serbisyo ng programang after school sa mga pamilya. Pakitala po na hindi ito kaugnay ng mga pagbabawas sa pondong pederal sa mga prograng after school, kundi dahil sa hindi pagkakapanalo sa pinagkokompetensiyahang grant na Pagkatuto sa Ika-21 Siglo (21st Century Learning).

 

Naiintindihan namin kung gaano kahalaga ang after school at ang pag-aaral sa tag-araw, at may pananagutan kaming panatilihin ang mga serbisyo para sa after school at programang pantag-araw. Para matiyak na magpapatuloy ang mga serbisyong ito, maglilipat kami ng mas maraming pondo ng SFUSD tungo sa pagbibigay ng subsidyo sa mga serbisyong ito, at magpapatupad rin kami ng co-payment fee structure (sistema ng paghahati sa bayad sa pagitan ng distrito at mga pamilya, depende sa kita) sa kabuuan ng distrito para sa LAHAT NG ExCEL na programang after school sa elementarya/K-8 at middle school. May ilang programa kung saan ipinatutupad na ang sistema ng paghahati sa bayad. Ipatutupad ang co-payment (kabahagi sa bayad) na sistemang ito sa akademikong taon 2017-2018. Dahil inaasahan na ang pangangailangan para sa pagkakaroon ng sapat na pondo, inaprubahan na ng Lupon ng Edukasyon (Board of Education) ang pagpapatupad ng sistema ng co-payment noong 2014 sa pamamagitan ng resolusyon nito na pinamagatang After School for All (Pag-aaral Matapos ang Regular na Klase na Para sa Lahat).

 

Ibabahagi ang mas maraming detalye sa inyo ng bawat ExCEL na programang after school na nasa kani-kaniyang eskuwelahan, pero sa pangkalahatan, heto ang mga gabay sa paghahati ng bayad na susundin ng lahat ng programa:

 

Hindi pababayaran ang buwanang singil na co-payment para sa batang: 1) kuwalipikado para sa libre o murang tanghalian, maliban na lamang sa mga singil na itinatakda ng lokal, pang-estado, o pederal na programa sa subsidyo sa matrikula; 2) homeless (walang tirahan) o; 3) nasa foster care o pangangalaga ng estado.

 

Magbabayad ang lahat ng iba pang bata ng singil na co-payment sa nag-iiba-ibang halaga at mula sa $50 hanggang $500/kada buwan batay sa kita.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Kính gởi Gia đình SFUSD:

 

Tại SFUSD, hầu hết các chương trình sau giờ học và học hè tại trường được đồng tài trợ bởi SFUSD (chương trình ExCEL) và các tổ chức dựa trên cộng đồng thành viên. Phần lớn chương trình được hỗ trợ ngân sách thông qua các nguồn quỹ thành phố, tiểu bang và liên bang. Các nguồn quỹ thường được cung cấp trong ba cho tới năm chu kỳ dài và không được bảo đảm sẽ được tái cung cấp khi chu kỳ ngân quỹ chấm dứt. Không may mắn, học khu vừa biết được rằng bị mất $3.3 triệu đô la trong các khoảng trợ vấp liên bang liên quan để hỗ trợ các chương trình dịch vụ sau giờ học cho các gia đình. Xin vui lòng chú ý, điều này không liên quan tới việc cắt giảm ngân quỹ liên bang cho các chương trình sau giờ học nhưng do không được trao học bổng cạnh tranh 21st Century Learning.

 

Chúng tôi hiểu tầm quan trọng việc học hè và sau giờ học và chúng tôi cam kết gìn giữ các dịch vụ chương trình học hè và sau giờ học. Để đảm bảo việc tiếp tục các dịch vụ, chúng tôi sẽ chuyển nhiều nguồn quỹ SFUSD hơn vào việc trợ cấp các dịch vụ này và cũng thực hiện cấu trúc đồng thanh toán chi phí cho chương trình sau giờ học cấp trung học cơ sở và tiểu học/K-8 ALL ExCEL. Vài chương trình cũng có sẵn cấu trúc chi phí. Cấu trúc đồng chi trả chi phí cho năm học 2017-2018. Nhằm dự đoán nhu cầu về mô hình tài trợ bền vững hơn, Hội đồng Giáo dục chấp thuận việc thực hiện cấu trúc đồng chi trả chi phí trong 2014 với giải pháp của nó có tên là  After School for All.

 

Mỗi chương trình sau giờ học ExCEL sẽ chia sẻ nhiều chi tiết hơn nhưng tổng quát, hướng dẫn cấu trúc chi phí cho tất cả các chương trình như sau:

 

Chi phí đồng chi trả hằng tháng sẽ được miễn trừ cho một trẻ em: 1) đủ tiêu chuẩn cho bữa ăn trưa giảm giá hay miễn phí ngoại trừ các lệ phí bắt buộc cho chương trình trợ cấp học phí địa phương, tiểu bang hoặc liên bang; 2) người vô gia cư hoặc; 3) trong chăm sóc nuôi dưỡng.

 

Tất cả các trẻ em khác sẽ trả chi phí đồng chi trả theo thang điểm từ $50-$500/tháng dựa theo thu nhập.

اعزائي اهالي مقاطعة مدارس سان فرانسيسكو الموحدة:

 

في مقاطعة مدارس سان فرانسيسكو الموحدة، اغلب برامج بعد المدرسة الواقعة بالمدارس وبرامج التعلم بالصيف تتم برعاية مشتركة بواسطة مقاطعة مدارس سان فرانسيسكو الموحدة (برنامج اكسيل) والمنظمات المجتمعية.  الاغلب يتم تمويلها بواسطة مجلس المدينة، الولاية والمنح الاتحادية.  هذه الهبات تمنح عادة في ثلاث الى خمس دورات طويلة وغير مضمون تجديدها في حال انتهاء دورة المنحة. للأسف، علمت المقاطعة قريبا بأنها خسرت 3.3 $ مليون دولار من المنح الفيدرالية التنافسية لدعم خدمات برامج تعليم بعد المدرسة للأهالي. يرجى ملاحظة ان هذا لايمت بصلة الى الاقتطاعات التمويلية الفيدرالية لبرامج بعد المدرسة لكن عوضا عن ذلك بسبب عدم الحصول على منحة القرن الـ 21 التنافسية.

 

نفهم اهمية برامج تعلم بعد المدرسة والصيف ونحن ملتزمون بالمحافظة على خدمات برامج بعد المدرسة والصيف. ولضمان استمرارية الخدمات، سوف نحرك تمويل اكثر من المقاطعة الى دعم هذه الخدمات وايضا تطبيق هيكلية رسوم دفع مشتركة على مستوى المقاطعة لجميع برامج اكسيل الابتدائية/ الحضانة – 8  والمتوسطة.  لدى بعض البرامج بنية رسوم جاهزة. سوف يبداء تنفيذ الرسوم المشتركة للعام الدراسي 2017 – 2018.  تحسبا للحاجة الى نموذج تكويل افضل، اقر مجلس التعليم تطبيق بنية رسوم دفع مشتركة في 2014 مع قراره بعنوان بعد المدرسة للجميع.

 

كل برنامج اكسل لبعد المدرسة سوف شارك بالمزيد من التفاصيل لكن بالعموم، اليكم المبادئ التوجيهية للرسوم التي ستتبعها جميع البرامج:

 

سوف يتم اعفاء الرسوم المشتركة للطفل الذي: 1) مؤهل للغداء المجاني او المخفض ماعدى تلك الرسوم المطلوبة بواسطة البرامج المحلية، الولاية او مساعدة الفيدرالية للرسوم،  2) المشرد او، 3) لبيوت رعاية الشباب.

 

جميع الاطفال الاخرين سوف يدفعون رسوم مشاركة بمقياس متدرج من 50$ - 500$ / شهريا حسب الدخل

So close, yet so far away.  From 1910 to 1940, many Angel Island Immigration Station immigrants experienced these feelings upon reaching America, but were detained from entering San Francisco.  On May 7, 2017 (12:00-3:00), the San Francisco Public Library Main Library will celebrate Asian Pacific Islander American Heritage Month by spotlighting personal immigrant stories from those who went through Angel Island.


Look forward to educational games and craft activities for all ages, a display of Angel Island family histories, books, news articles, and photos. The first 50 children ages 12 and under will receive a goody bag.

This is an update for families who submitted applications by January 13, 2017 for an SFUSD school assignment. As you know SFUSD school assignment letters, which were scheduled to be mailed out by March 17, have been delayed. The delay is due to unforeseen staffing emergencies.

Please be assured we are double checking for accuracy every step of the way and aim to get this information to families as soon as possible.

The San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) has a policy in place that explicitly prohibits gender-based discrimination, a protection that extends to everyone, including transgender and gender expansive students.

We are proud that we were the first school district in the country to pass a policy extending safeguards to our transgender student body. We will continue to honor those policies and ensure that transgender and gender nonconforming students in the SFUSD will remain protected from discrimination, bullying and harassment.

Students, know that in California public schools, you have the right to be...

  • Free from bullying, harassment and discrimination
  • Respected when you dress and express yourself in ways that do not conform to gender stereotypes, with respect to the student dress codes
  • Affirmed by adults when you declare your pronoun and name that fits your gender identity
  • Involved in school activities, access spaces such as locker rooms and restrooms, that fits your gender identity

We are excited to share that the district is transitioning from School Loop to Synergy’s Gradebook Family and Student Portals in August 2017. This transition to Synergy will provide SFUSD’s students, families, teachers, and district staff with a unified system for real-time information on classes, grades, assignments, and more. While we know change can be challenging, we firmly believe the transition to Synergy Gradebook will increase efficiency for teachers and improve access for our students and families.

 

What does this mean for students and families?
Starting in August 2017, students and families will log in to Synergy’s Family and Student Portals to access student information related to attendance, assignments and grading. Our transition to Synergy is a response to feedback we have heard from school communities about the need to streamline the number of online systems we use for school-family communications.  Our team will be reaching out to families via parent groups and advisory councils, email, School Messenger, school websites, and School Loop to inform them of the change and provide opportunities to learn more and prepare for the transition in August 2017.  

 

Why are we making this change?

  • One login for attendance and grades for teachers and district staff
  • One login per family, regardless of the number of children and which school they attend
  • Greater clarification and standardization of SFUSD grading practices and policies
  • Increased security and confidentiality of student and parent information
  • Actionable real-time student performance information
  • Improved accessibility for individuals with disabilities
  • Improved translation options

What will happen with School Loop?
School Loop will continue to be used for school websites next year. However, teachers, students and families will use Synergy instead of School Loop for other communications and  information about grades and assignments.

 

We are confident that Synergy Gradebook is another exciting step to leverage technology to increase engagement in our school communities, enhance data integrity and security, and better position us for 21st century learning, as outlined in Vision 2025 and our Digital District Plan.  

 

To learn more, check out the exciting G4A Launch Video, go to the Gradebook for All website (www.sfusd.edu/gradebook), or download the attached flier.

Attention Graduating Class of 2018:

 

Please read this message because it will affect how you apply for private universities during 2017-2018.

 

https://www.commonapp.org/whats-appening/application-updates/common-application-announces-2017-2018-essay-prompts

 

We are pleased to share the 2017-2018 Common Application essay prompts with you. The changes you see below reflect the feedback of 108 Common App member colleges and more than 5,000 other Common App constituents, as well as consultation with our advisory committees and Board of Directors. Students represented the single largest share of constituent survey respondents (59%), followed by school counselors (23%), and teachers (11%).

 

Read The Common App Essay Prompts Are Changing 

 

We were gratified to learn that 91% of members and 90% of constituents agree or strongly agree that the current prompts are effective. In addition, the narrative comments we received helped us see areas for improvement in three of the prompts. Working in close consultation with the counselors and admission officers on our advisory committees, we revised these prompts in a way that we believe will help students see expanded opportunities for expressing themselves. Those revisions appear in italics. You will also notice two new prompts. The first asks students to share examples of their intellectual curiosity. The second is a return to inviting students to submit an essay on a topic of their choice, reframed to help students understand that they are welcome to draw inspiration from multiple sources, not just their own creativity.

 

The word limit on the essay will remain at 650.

 

The goal of these revisions is to help all applicants, regardless of background or access to counseling, see themselves and their stories within the prompts. They are designed to invite unencumbered discussions of character and community, identity, and aspiration. To this end, we will be creating new educational resources to help students both understand and approach the opportunities the essay presents for them.

 

2017-2018 Common Application Essay Prompts

1. Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story. [No change]

2. The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience? [Revised]

3. Reflect on a time when you questioned or challenged a belief or idea. What prompted your thinking? What was the outcome? [Revised]

4. Describe a problem you've solved or a problem you'd like to solve. It can be an intellectual challenge, a research query, an ethical dilemma - anything that is of personal importance, no matter the scale. Explain its significance to you and what steps you took or could be taken to identify a solution. [No change]

5. Discuss an accomplishment, event, or realization that sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of yourself or others. [Revised]

6. Describe a topic, idea, or concept you find so engaging that it makes you lose all track of time. Why does it captivate you? What or who do you turn to when you want to learn more? [New]

7. Share an essay on any topic of your choice. It can be one you've already written, one that responds to a different prompt, or one of your own design. [New]

Wesley Johnson: The Texas Tornado is the topic as Oxford University Press historian John William Templeton leads a Black History Month service at St. Dominick's Catholic Church, 2390 Bush St. on Saturday, Feb. 4 at 2 p.m. 

Prior to the service, Templeton presents a tour of the African-American Freedom Trail at 11 a.m. beginning from the Martin Luther King Waterfall in Yerba Buena Gardens. 

Johnson came to San Francisco at age nine in 1915 for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition and achieved a number of milestones at each stage of his life. Highlights include welcoming the debate team from Wiley College in Texas to San Francisco State Teachers College in 1935 for an interracial debate with S.F. State and U.C-Berkeley. The Wiley debaters were popularized in the Oprah Winfrey-produced film The Great Debaters starring Denzel Washington. Johnson also opened the Flamingo Club and Hotel Texas at 1832-6 Fillmore Street in 1943 for a 25 year run as the heart of the Fillmore nightlife scene. 

The African-American Freedom Trail, as featured on NBC Bay Area and KPIX, is part of a statewide trail which documents the role of African-Americans in 500 years of California history.  More than 400 sites are in San Francisco, including three current churches and two Prince Hall lodges founded in 1852.  

For more details about the tour, contact John William Templeton at 415-240-3537john@zenviba.org or book at californiablackhistory.com

We are a community that believes -- fundamentally -- that each child and each person is the equal of every other. 

 

This belief cuts across race, nationality, immigration history, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic means, ability status, language, and age. When we are at our best, we celebrate diversity, embrace our differences, and build on each others' strengths. 

 

We believe strongly in social justice, which means we fight against systemic oppression. We stand up for those who are vulnerable and hope others will do so for us when we need them. We put students' needs first, and we will protect them now. 

 

These core values connect us every day. Let's find ways to move forward together, in unity and in strength.

It's that time of year for ALHS to share in our Mustang love and spirit for those less fortunate in our community.

 

This year's Canned Food Drive will benefit the Raphael House, which helps at-risk families achieve stable housing and financial independence. As is tradition, the canned food drive will be a partnered endeavor with JROTC. 

 

Although any classes may donate food, the canned food drive competition is a competition among advisories ONLY.  We are asking all students to write their advisories at the bottom of their cans and to deliver these to JROTC during advisory on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Do NOT leave bags of cans outside of the JROTC door.

 

The academy advisory and the non-academy advisory that donate the most cans will each win a pizza party, compliments of ASB.

 

The Canned Food Drive will run from Monday, November 7, through Thursday, December 8.

 

Thank you to Colonel Ishikata and JROTC for their support!

On Nov. 8, 2016, San Franciscans will vote on Proposition A, a $744 million general obligation bond that will fund repairs, and maintenance to SFUSD facilities. The bond would allow SFUSD to construct new schools and make seismic upgrades to existing facilities.

Specifically, Proposition A will:

  • Complete seismic safety and modernization projects to make all schools and other district facilities more earthquake safe and energy efficient;
  • Build new schools and classrooms to accommodate a growing student population;
  • Kickstart development of a new SFUSD Arts Center and Ruth Asawa School of the Arts to preserve and promote music and art in curriculum;
  • Invest in technology improvements including installing higher-speed Wi-Fi for all classrooms to enable 21st century learning;
  • Maintain and expand the district’s green schoolyards program to 91 school sites;
  • Explore methods for developing affordable housing for teachers.

SFUSD would create an independent citizens' oversight committee to report to the public about the use of bond funds. The Board of Education would also conduct an annual, independent audit regarding the use of the bond funds.

This posting is meant to be informational rather than persuasive.

Dear SFUSD families,

 

Earlier this week gunshots were fired in the school parking lot at dismissal time at June Jordan School for Equity (JJSE), and four students were physically injured. They are recovering. The assailants were not part of the school and appeared to be targeting one student -- there is no ongoing threat to students at JJSE. This isolated event, although awful, should not be viewed as a negative reflection on JJSE, an extremely safe school focused on caring relationships.  

 

This terrible incident has shaken everyone in the community. While students at other schools were not directly impacted, we recognize that an event like this can bring up difficult feelings for you and your child. Please know that school staff is prepared to discuss these feelings with your child and provide additional support as needed.

 

All school staff remain alert to any potential threats to safety in our school district.  The safety and security of the San Francisco Unified School District’s students and staff is of utmost importance. SFUSD has a comprehensive crisis plan, and district administrators coordinate closely with city emergency management officials and law enforcement representatives to monitor and update plans on a regular basis.

 

In addition, schools have security measures to ensure the well-being of students and staff. These include: visitor check-in procedures, locked doors after the start of the school day, surveillance cameras, and school resource officer support.

 

How we notify you if there is a school emergency

If there is an emergency at your child's school or a citywide emergency that impacts your child’s school, SFUSD will notify parents using the contact information in our student information system. Depending on the impact level of the emergency, we will attempt to reach you via a phone call and email using the information in our database, and, if you have opted in to receive text messages, you will receive text notifications as well.

 

If you do not receive a message it is likely because your current contact information has not been entered into the district’s confidential student information system. We encourage you to check with your school site secretary or principal to ensure they have the most up to date contact information for you in SFUSD’s student information system.  This is the how, in the event of a school or citywide emergency, we can reach you immediately.

 

Notifications regarding high-impact emergencies will also be posted on the district’s website sfusd.edu, Twitter account (@SFUnified) and shared with the media.

 

How to sign up for text notifications

If you have a mobile phone entered into our system, you will receive one prompt from SFUSD via SchoolMessenger asking you to opt in to receiving text messages. The message will only be sent one time from the number 67587 and will read: "SFUSD alerts. Reply Y to confirm, HELP for info. Msg&data rates may apply. Msg freq varies. schoolmessenger.com/txt."

 

We encourage you to reply "Y" to receive text messages from SFUSD and your school, as it often makes for faster communication, which is crucial in the event of an emergency. However, if you do not wish to opt in, you can simply ignore the text message.

 

You will only receive this message one time, and if you do not reply "Y" to confirm, the district cannot send you future text notifications. If you already received a text message and didn’t reply but do want to receive urgent messages via text, you may still sign up by texting “YES” to the number 67587 from your mobile phone. Please note, if you text this number and your mobile phone is not entered in the student information system, messages will not be sent to it.

 

More information about SFUSD’s emergency notification procedures can be found here: http://www.sfusd.edu/en/safety-and-emergency-plan/student-safety-and-parent-notification.html

 

Regards,

Myong Leigh

Interim Superintendent

Audience: Homepage

All of us in the San Francisco Unified School District are deeply troubled by the incident that took place yesterday afternoon in the parking lot at June Jordan School for Equity (JJSE). Our understanding at this time is that a small group of outsiders unaffiliated with the school came to campus around the time of school dismissal, targeting a particular JJSE student for reasons that are presently unclear. Sadly, four students were injured during the incident. They have received appropriate medical attention and are recovering from their injuries. 

 

We want to thank the San Francisco Police Department for their support immediately following the incident and for their work in the ongoing investigation. We are also grateful to the paramedics and medical professionals who tended to our students, and we are committed to supporting our students and their families as they overcome their physical and emotional wounds. We also appreciate the offers of support immediately made by Mayor Ed Lee and Supervisor John Avalos. Finally, we commend JJSE’s leaders, faculty and students both for their steady, calm and caring actions as the situation evolved and for the dedicated and courageous efforts that they have already begun to heal from yesterday’s events.  

 

I need to state emphatically that this isolated event, although awful, should not be viewed as a negative reflection on JJSE. June Jordan is an intentionally small, extremely safe school focused on deep and caring relationships between all students and adults. All those connected to this school take great pride in, and put special care toward, creating a nurturing community rooted in the shared value of social justice. Through its small class sizes, college-going culture, and focus on rigorous, independent thinking, many JJSE students become the first in their families to attend college.  

 

Though only four students were physically injured, this terrible incident has shaken everyone in the community, particularly the staff and students at June Jordan. Fortunately the school has a strong tradition of coming together daily to discuss challenging topics and to support one another. In addition to coming together as a community, JJSE has trained counselors who will be meeting with students and faculty. We deeply appreciate the educators and students at June Jordan School for Equity and will proudly stand by them through this disturbing, but temporary, challenge.

For several weeks, there have been reports on social media concerning "creepy clown" sightings and pranks. While these reports come from different parts of the country, they all share a similar theme of frightening people and threatening violence.

 

Although there is no credible threat in San Francisco, the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) has been in continuous communication with the district. Local law enforcement and the district are actively monitoring social media posts, including rumors that clowns would show up at schools threatening to do harm. Schools will use safety precautions if necessary, including prohibiting unauthorized visitors, and will immediately contact law enforcement when warranted.

826 Valencia is proud to announce our eighth weekend-long personal statement tutoring event, The Great San Francisco Personal Statement Weekend, will be held on October 15 and 16 at Mission High School. We invite all SFUSD high school seniors to register for a weekend of free college essay help.


Here’s how it works: during the weekend of October 15 and 16, 826 Valencia will have trained tutors on call to give one-on-one attention to students who are writing responses to the UC's Personal Insight Questions, Common Application essays, and scholarship essays. We're prepared to support students at all stages of the writing process, whether they’re just starting, almost finished, or somewhere in between. We’ll also have computers on hand for easy editing and brain food to keep them going.

 

Registering for the event as a student is easy and free—just follow this link for more information and to sign up. You can choose to attend one or two two-hour session(s) on either or both days. Advance registration is required so we can best prepare to meet each student's individual needs.

 

Save the date and spread the word! Last year we served 171 students over the weekend, and this year we are hoping to exceed 200. Seniors: Don't miss this opportunity to polish your personal statements, making them clear, powerful, meaningful, memorable, and effective at getting you into college!

Dear SFUSD Families:  

 

I am writing to you on behalf of all of my colleagues on the SFUSD Board of Education.

 

Given the news of Superintendent Richard A. Carranza’s likely departure to serve as Houston’s new superintendent, the Board of Education has moved swiftly to ensure a smooth transition and continued positive momentum for our district.

 

While we begin the community process of searching for a new superintendent to serve our district, the Board of Education is united in choosing Deputy Superintendent Myong Leigh as SFUSD’s interim superintendent.

 

Mr. Leigh has been with SFUSD since 2000 and has successfully managed day-to-day operations and overseen key district initiatives. Our district has tremendous leadership throughout our schools and central offices. Mr. Leigh will be working with a great team at SFUSD.  

 

We are grateful to have had Superintendent Carranza at the helm for the past seven years--four as superintendent and three as a deputy. Under his leadership, SFUSD has maintained a focus on students’ academic growth through effective common-core aligned teaching and learning while also developing students’ social, emotional and physical well being. Our teachers and other have received more resources to do their critical work, including greater compensation, professional learning opportunities and access to technology.

 

The board takes seriously our responsibility to ensure the most capable and qualified leader for our school district moving forward. In the near future there will be a public meeting to discuss a selection process for the next superintendent of schools. Our national search process will be inclusive, transparent, and thorough.  

 

Without a doubt, we will prioritize finding a leader who shares our vision for ensuring every graduate is ready to succeed in college and careers. We will prioritize someone who has a track record of leading around our enduring goals of student achievement, access, equity, and accountability. And we will seek someone who can work with you and our entire community to move our district closer to our vision.

 

As we embark on the search for a new leader for SFUSD, input from our families is critical. Please check our website, sfusd.edu, for updates on future public meetings where the Board will gather input on the superintendent search and selection process.

 

All our school administrators are looking forward to greeting you and your children back to school on August 15.


 

Sincerely,  

 

Matt Haney

President, SF Board of Education

  1. Describe an example of your leadership experience in which you have positively influenced others, helped resolve disputes, or contributed to group efforts over time.

Writing tips

Here are some tips and techniques to help you get started.

Start early.

Give yourself plenty of time for preparation, careful composition and revisions.

Write persuasively.

Making a list of accomplishments, activities, awards or work will lessen the impact of your words. Expand on a topic by using specific, concrete examples to support the points you want to make.

Use “I” statements.

Talk about yourself so that we can get to know your personality, talents, accomplishments and potential for success on a UC campus. Use “I” and “my” statements in your responses.

Proofread and edit.

Although you will not be evaluated on grammar, spelling or sentence structure, you should proofread your work and make sure your writing is clear. Grammatical and spelling errors can be distracting to the reader and get in the way of what you’re trying to communicate.

Solicit feedback.

Your answers should reflect your own ideas and be written by you alone, but others — family, teachers and friends — can offer valuable suggestions. Ask advice of whomever you like, but do not plagiarize from sources in print or online and do not use anyone's published words but your own.

Copy and paste.

Once you are satisfied with your answers, save them in plain text (ASCII) and paste them into the space provided in the application. Proofread once more to make sure no odd characters or line breaks have appeared.

Relax.

This is one of many pieces of information we consider in reviewing your application. Your responses can only add value to the application. An admission decision will not be based on this section alone.

Additional instructions for active military, veterans and dependants

Because UC is interested in knowing about your or a family member's military service, you may wish to use this section to communicate the following:

  • Describe how your military service has been instrumental in developing your educational plans.
  • Indicate if you're affiliated with the military, such as the spouse or dependent of someone who is on active duty or a current participant in an ROTC-type program.

What about the “Additional comments” section?

After you complete the personal insight questions, you will see another section called “Additional Comments.” This is an optional section and should not be used as a continuation of your responses to the personal questions. Instead, you should use this section to:

  • Provide additional clarification on important details in your application, such as honors, awards, activities.
  • Share information regarding a nontraditional school environment or unusual circumstances.
  • Describe anything else that you HAVE NOT had the opportunity to include elsewhere in your application.

There is a 550 word limit to this section.
