PPS-SF Blog Comments Standards

Welcome to the PPS-SF blog! 

Our goal is to create a safe space for participants to share a variety of thoughts and perspectives. In speaking your truth on the comments, we remind you to be responsible, be kind, and be productive.


Please take note of our posting guidelines.

Participants must agree to follow our Terms and Conditions of Use and the following guidelines.


Respect each other. This may be an online venue, but we’re all equals no matter where we share our thoughts and opinions.

Connect, share ideas, and post information about education, parenting, and San Francisco public schools: including public school-related events and fundraisers.

Protect your privacy. Comments to our blog are visible to the public. You shouldn’t post anything here that you wouldn’t say in public. Protect your privacy and don’t give out personal information you don’t wish to share publicly. You can read our privacy policy here.


Be hateful. Disagreements can lead to great progress. However, insulting individuals will not be tolerated. Posts that use obscenities, personal insults, other disparaging language will not be approved.

Be intolerant. We do not welcome homophobia, sexism, racism, classism, religious intolerance, or any other other intolerance. Keep in mind that this does not always take the form of racial slurs. If you find yourself typing “I’m not racist, but…” or “I’m not sexist, but…” you should probably think twice.

Mention teachers, principals, and lower-level administrators by name, unless you want to say something nice about them. In the interest of a healthy democracy and debate, it is OK to post (fact-based) criticisms of elected officials, high-profile district administrators and city department heads, as long as they are not currently running for office.

Promote or discuss campaigns of individuals running for public office. PPS-SF’s tax-exempt status does not allow it. It is OK to discuss propositions, initiatives, policies and legislation. We like to talk about those things!

Our Bottom Line

Our vision at PPS-SF is that all San Franciscans are invested in the success of every school in our City. We love healthy debate, but always within the context of moving forward in a positive direction.

All posts and comments are being moderated. We reserve the right to make editorial decisions, without notification or explanation, regarding submitted posts and comments, including but not limited to their removal.
