Who We Are

The San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) is California’s seventh largest school. Every year, more than 55,000 students, speaking more than 44 documented languages, have powerful learning experiences in the 130 public schools within the City and County of San Francisco. We aim to provide each student with an equal opportunity to succeed by promoting intellectual growth, creativity, self-discipline, cultural and linguistic sensitivity, democratic responsibility, economic competence, and physical and mental health so that each student can achieve his or her maximum potential. We place access and equity, student achievement, and accountability at the forefront of every child’s education in pursuit of this mission.

What It Means to Work Here

When you join our team at SFUSD you can expect to be part of an inclusive, innovative and equity-focused organization that approaches public education as a social justice movement that requires broad collaboration across an array of strategic partners. As a CORE district, SFUSD is also a leader in critical systems change for more comprehensive school accountability and innovations that help strengthen the instructional core, which is the foundation of our strategic plan, Impact Learning. Impact Lives.
