For 15 years, Parents for Public Schools – San Francisco has been assisting families and working to ensure quality public schools for all children in our city. We help parents at each stage of the journey, from introducing them to the enrollment lottery process, to developing parent leaders in the schools and at the district, to improving systems at SFUSD and much more.

We provide essential support to all families in every community across our city, and we work to ensure that the full range of parent voices is part of policy-making at the District and Board of Education. Read more >

Open Letter to the Incoming San Francisco Unified School District Board of Education Commissioners

Dear Newly Elected and Re-Elected School Board Commissioners,

Congratulations to each of you on your election, and thank you for your commitment to serving the students and families of the San Francisco Unified School District.

For fifteen years, Parents for Public Schools of San Francisco (PPS-SF) has worked closely with you and your colleagues on the Board of Education to ensure excellent public education outcomes for our city’s children. PPS-SF supports student success by developing effective school-parent partnerships, building strong parent-parent relationships, and ensuring broad community support for public education. Our work with our broad, diverse parent network has led to a number of insights that, in the spirit of collaborative partnership, we wish to share with each of you as you begin this new term.

Tips from Parents

Jose Ortega shares success tips for their Annual Walk-a-thon

“The distance from San Francisco to San Diego is 502 miles. Last year, our kids walked enough to get there and beyond! Their combined little feet walked/ran a total of 721 miles – which would take them all the way to Mexico – and earned quite a bit of revenue for our school, as well!”

Read more great ideas and tips happening at other schools.

If your school has a tip to share with other public school parents, let us know and we will feature on our website.
