Common Core State Standards for Math (CCSS-M)
The introduction of new standards gives SFUSD an opportunity to better define a coherent, focused, and rigorous math curriculum. The new standards focus on students learning more deeply the processes of math. All schools in SFUSD are expected to fully implement the CCSS-M in the 2014-2015 school year and we are well on our way. Learn more here.

Changes in Assessing Student Learning
There are some exciting changes going on in SFUSD this year! As you may have heard, the district is transitioning from the old California State Standards to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Standards list expectations for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. The new standards are more challenging than previous standards and will better prepare students for success in college and career in the 21st century. The new standards will affect teaching and learning, report cards, and assessment.

Community-Based Organizations and Agencies
Before an organization or agency can provide services to students in any public school—even though you provide services free of charge to SFUSD—you need to have a formal agreement with SFUSD that describes your program services in detail, and ensures your agency fulfills legal requirements that protect our students, your organization, and the district as a whole. This agreement is called a “Memorandum of Understanding,” or MOU, and must be approved by the Board of Education as well as district staff.
For community organizations or agencies interested in providing their services free of charge to SFUSD students, families or staff, we have a new, online process for filling out your MOU form! Later this fall, you will also be able to fill out facility use permit requests online.
Agencies will still need to print out your MOU and obtain original signatures for approval, but the online forms are easier to fill out and will allow us to build a database of all the services that community partners are providing to support SFUSD students.
Please be sure to read this information about the MOU process since we have changed some procedures as we’ve updated our systems: Frequently Asked Questions about MOUs (updated Dec. 2013).
For further reference, here is a one-page flowchart detailing the MOU approval process.
If you don’t have an agency username and password, you can contact the technical Help Desk Monday through Friday, from 8 AM to 5 PM at (866) 469-6884 (toll-free).
