Big data, ballgames & a kick-off read-in: Highlights for Jan. 26 - Feb. 1, 2016


With all the variables that go into making schools great for every child, there is a lot of data to look at. That’s where a new plan required by the State of California called the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) comes in.  The LCAP is where SFUSD identifies its annual priorities for student success, puts them into action, and then measures its progress. That information is used to update the next year’s plan. The LCAP reflects the input gathered through many conversations with parents and educators, as well as research about ways to address our most pressing challenges.  SFUSD will be presenting “Telling the Story Behind the Numbers: Making Sense of District Data” this week to the public.

When:  Wednesday, Jan. 27 / 6:30-8:00 p.m.

Where:  SFUSD Board Room / 555 Franklin Street


The Balboa basketball team will be taking on some old-school alumni at the 46th annual Alumni vs. Varsity game at Balboa High. Each year, former members of the Balboa boys’ varsity team from as far back as the 1970s play against current varsity team players for a good-natured matchup to raise funds for Balboa’s sports programs. The event is sponsored by the Balboa Alumni Association, which has approximately 8,000 members and works to maintain old traditions and create new ones that enrich the lives of everyone connected with Balboa High.

When: Saturday, Jan. 30 / doors open at 5:15 p.m.

Where: Balboa HS / Orron Quall Gym / 1000 Cayuga Ave.

(Beta Nu Chapter), and the Bayview YMCA.
