Fall Learning Town Halls

Fall Learning Town Halls: July 6-9, 2020

Give Input on Fall Learning Plans

Questions on fall learning

About the Town Halls

Our community is working together to shape what fall learning will look like for SFUSD students. We would like your input. We also know you have questions, and we'll do our best to answer them! 

We'll share information about:

  • Our process for fall planning
  • Lessons learned so far from the spring semester
  • Overview of public health guidance for schools 
  • Scenarios under consideration

Please join us for a Town Hall the week of July 6! The Schedule of Events is below.

How to Join a Town Hall

To participate in a town hall, you only need a device that connects to the internet. We will livestream each town hall on SFUSD's YouTube channel. The link to the YouTube Live stream will be posted here one hour before each start time. We will also post a recording of each town hall after the event for those who could not participate in the livestream.

We encourage you to share your questions in advance of the town halls by using SFUSD’s ThoughtExchange. ThoughtExchange does not capture any personal information, and does not record anyone’s voice or image. Participants simply type and send their ideas - it’s a lot like sending a text or posting a comment on social media. Then you can see the questions and ideas that other participants are sharing.

Family Survey

In addition to the town halls, we have created a brief, anonymous survey for you to share your thoughts on what you want fall learning to look like. 

The survey is available online in English, Spanish, Cantonese, Tagalog, Arabic, Vietnamese, and Samoan. To change the survey to a different language, go to the dropdown menu at the top where it says "English.” Select your student's school to take the survey. We will share a summary of the findings later in July.
