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 >


Growing our Impact

Since its inception in the late 1990’s – during a public education renaissance in San Francisco – PPS-SF has been on the front lines educating parents about the benefits and importance of having a public school system that families across San Francisco invest in.

The organization has served more than 130,000 parents across San Francisco in its fifteen-year history. Help us by donating to our Annual Campaign TODAY to reach even more families!

PPS-SF’s programs reach parents from a multitude of ethnic, socioeconomic, and linguistic backgrounds. Our passion for serving parents can be seen through our achievements. We thank you, and depend on you, for your continued support of Parents for Public Schools of San Francisco.

Please consider making a donation today!

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.
