Requesting for Student and Family Resources (Student and Family Resource Link)

Providing access to district information for students and families through online request form, email or phone line.

The SFUSD Student and Family Resource Link is a new project to help students and families navigate all of the SFUSD resources available to them during distance learning for the rest of the school year. This service will not replace existing phone lines and support already provided by district departments. Students and families can access the Student and Family Resource Link by emailing familylink@sfusd.edu, calling 415-340-1716 (M-F, 9 a.m.-1p.m.), or filling out an online request form.

Requesting Student Records

Change to Records Request Procedure due to Covid-19:

To minimize the spread of COVID-19, San Francisco Unified School District schools and facilities are closed beginning March 16, 2020 through June 2, 2020. By direction of the State EXECUTIVE ORDER N-33-20 and City ORDER OF THE HEALTH OFFICER No. C19-07b, all non-essential staff are ordered to shelter-in-place. 

Student records, if existing and retained by the District, are located in a District facility that is currently closed and inaccessible to staff. When the District resumes normal business operations, we will complete the search process for the records requested and make those records available as soon as practicable. In the meantime, SFUSD staff will provide families and caregivers with any existing digital student records to the extent possible.

Parents and parents’ representatives (i.e., attorneys or special education advocates)

During the regular school year, requests for any portion of a student’s cumulative file and/or special education file shall be directed to the principal of your child’s current school or last attended school at SFUSD. Parents or parents’ representatives who are making a request for all educational records should not make requests for records to Special Education Records.

Requesting Public Records

The California Public Records Act (CPRA) requires that governmental records be made accessible to the public upon request, unless otherwise exempted by law.  Within 10 days from receipt of the request, the District will determine whether there are responsive records in whole or in part, and will notify the person making the request of the determination. In certain circumstances, the time limit prescribed in the law may be extended.  The District will notify the person making the request and describe the reasons for the extension and the date on which a determination is expected. 

Please direct all Public Records Act Requests to publicinfo@sfusd.edu. Please include your full name, organization (if applicable), mailing address, phone number, and email.  Requests should include a clear and specific description of the records being sought.  Public Records Act requests may be mailed to:

Legal Department
