Theory of Action

These are the actions we believe are our greatest levers to ensure our overall vision of graduating every student ready for college, career and life comes true.

If we...

  • Engage our students to learn via a rigorous Common Core-based curriculum in a safe and supportive classroom environment;
  • Invest in building and developing the capacity of teachers, leaders and school staff;

  • Enlist our partners and empower families in a community schools approach;

  • And coherently align supports and resources to execute our strategies in action at all levels of the organization (classroom, school and central office, along with supportive policy and governance);

Then, every student who enrolls in our schools will graduate prepared to succeed in college, career and life.

Transform Learning. Transform Lives.

In the fall of 2013, we convened hundreds of community members, including students, parents, teachers, and business leaders, to develop a new vision for the future of public education in San Francisco. Our intent is to make this vision come true and to use the ideas that emerged in this community-wide process as a guide to transform the city’s school system into one of the premier school systems in the world over the next decade. In a city and world that is constantly changing, SFUSD’s Vision 2025 articulates the shifts our system will take to ensure that we prepare our graduates to live, thrive and succeed in San Francisco and beyond. The Graduate Profile serves as the anchor for our vision and identifies the knowledge, skills, dispositions and behaviors required for our students to succeed in our 21st century world.

Charting the course toward our vision will require us to build on the Strategies in Action we first articulated in Impact Learning. Impact Lives. and to further pursue innovative practices and system changes that will accelerate results for students from PreK through 12th grade and beyond.

Vision 2025 serves as our compass, the strategic plan our roadmap.
