New San Francisco Unified board members pledge focus on academic performance

After three of San Francisco Unified’s seven school board members were ousted in a recall election last month and three new ones were appointed by Mayor London Breed, the district’s new board pledges to spend 50% of board meetings on topics related to student outcomes, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

The board and the district’s new superintendent also promised to set specific academic performance goals by October. They have already begun working on the goals and plan to share a draft document with the public in the coming weeks, according to the Chronicle. The district anticipates the goals will be up for final approval by the school board on Oct. 25.
