Ten Big Shifts

Here are ten big shifts we want to see between now and 2025:

1

Graduate Profile

The SFUSD Graduate Profile will define the knowledge, skills, dispositions, and behaviors we expect our graduates to possess so they are prepared to thrive in life and career.
2

Personalized Pathways

All students will have personalized learning and development pathways.
3

Re-Imagined Space and Time

We will re-imagine the school day, keeping learning standards constant while we explore new ways to use space and time.
4

Motivation and Mastery

We will embrace engaging new ways to demonstrate mastery while motivating and inspiring ever-greater levels of learning.
5

Real-Life Tasks

We will integrate rich and meaningful real-life tasks into all levels of the curriculum.
6

Cultural Competence and Multilingualism

Students will be globally aware, multilingual and culturally competent, and fluent in a range of "second languages" including sign language and computer coding. Our graduates will see diversity in its many forms as an asset.
7

Blended Learning

All our schools will be equipped with technologies that support blended learning and increase personalization.
8

Talent and Collaboration

We will attract and grow top talent to fuel our students' success and to embody a culture of boundless aspiration, innovation and collaboration.
9
