San Francisco Unified task force aims to improve district’s high schools

San Francisco Unified is launching a task force in an effort to improve its high schools. The task force will include six students, nine educators, five parents and six community members.

The High School Task Force will gather information from the community about what it wants from its schools, complete a summary of what the high schools currently provide in terms of offerings and student outcomes. It will also make recommendations to Superintendent Matt Wayne on ways to improve policies, practices and programs for better student outcomes.

“Launching this task force is an exciting moment for our school district,” Wayne said. “Those who are on the High School Task Force represent a community that is passionate about what our high schools offer and how they deliver on student outcomes. Their voices and abilities to connect with our larger community will be essential to how we shape policies, practices and programs for better student outcomes.”

The first meeting of the task force will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the SFUSD Innovation Lab, Room 13, 727 Golden Gate Ave. Although the meetings are working sessions for the task force, they are open to the public.
