Partners Forum on August 13, 2020

The focus of the Forum on Thursday, August 13th, was to share information about fall learning and support for students and families; and to strategize on how SFUSD, the City and community partners can continue to collaborate.  This forum was developed and facilitated by a team of family & community leaders and SFUSD staff.    

District leaders shared updated information about the Fall Learning Plan and resources for families, and DCYF staff provided information about the Community Learning Hubs being developed by the City.
