African American Achievement & Leadership Initiative

About AAALI

The African American Achievement and Leadership Initiative (AAALI) was established in 2013 to provide recommendations to interrupt the inequitable pattern of outcomes for African American students in SFUSD. In 2015, through the leadership of the Superintendent and advocacy of the NAACP and San Francisco Alliance of Black School Educators, an African American Achievement and Leadership team was established to lead implementation of the initiative.
 
Through unanimous support of the Board of Education a resolution was passed in May 2015 directing SFUSD to set annual goals that would close the achievement and discipline gap for African American students in the next six years. The resolution also called for an Annual African American Student Report to monitor and support targeted strategies for African American students.
 
The African American Achievement and Leadership Initiative holds SFUSD departments and City agencies accountable for providing a high – quality educational experience to African American students, and provides a platform for African American students, parents, and community leadership.
