Guiding Principles for All SFUSD School Communities Introduction

The foundation of SFUSD’s Guiding Principles for All School Communities is the belief that all students, staff and families deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. The fundamental goal of the guiding principles and behavior expectations is for students to learn to be responsible for themselves and their actions, and to make genuine, positive contributions to their community.

SFUSD is committed to providing a positive school environment where young people feel connected and safe and where learning is maximized. All SFUSD staff are encouraged and expected to model the guiding principles and behavioral standards and to teach/reinforce those skills needed to build and maintain positive relationships, to resolve conflict, and to strengthen pro-social behavior
