Where We Need You Most

High Potential Schools

All of San Francisco’s students deserve the best teachers. SFUSD is committed to ensuring a high quality education for historically underserved populations and communities. Read about the exciting work we are currently doing toward this goal. We encourage talented educators to consider opportunities in San Francisco’s High Potential Schools.

QTEA provides additional funds for teachers in High Potential Schools. Fully credentialed teachers in these schools have the opportunity to earn an additional stipend of up to $2,000 per year in recognition of their work. This stipend is paid in two (2) installments to qualifying members after each semester. The list below reflects the schools designated as high need under QTEA for the 2018-2019 school year. This list is updated every spring for the following school year.

For more information on High Potential Schools eligibility requirements, please see the QTEA Internal Website (SFUSD login required).

Hard-to-Fill Subject Areas

We seek high-quality teachers in all subject areas. However, we especially encourage teachers who are certified in hard-to-fill subject areas to apply for teaching positions. Through Proposition A, all fully credentialed teachers who teach hard to fill subjects will have the opportunity to earn an additional stipend of $1,000 per year in recognition of their work. This stipend is paid at the end of the school year (end of June) to eligible certificated staff who work in a hard-to-fill subject area.

The hard-to-fill subject areas for the 2018-2019 school year are Special Education and Bilingual (BCLAD). This is subject to change in subsequent years.

If you are not currently certified in a hard-to-fill subject area but wish to obtain certification in one of these areas, please contact the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing to learn about obtaining your credential.
