Over the past three years, I’ve visited all 113 of our elementary, middle and high schools here in San Francisco Unified School District - partnering with students, parents, and educators to fight for a school system in which all of our children can fulfill their potential and pursue their dreams.
From authoring the landmark “Safe and Supportive Schools” policy to extending computer science education to all students and all schools, we have made tremendous progress together. I have worked to make our schools more supportive, healthy and equitable, to enhance relevant and engaging 21st century learning opportunities to build a healthy, sustainable, student centered school district, and to support and empower our educators, students, and families.
All that I have seen and learned has only deepened my commitment to our schools and students. I still believe that San Francisco can and should do a better job of providing opportunity to all of our children. There is so much potential and prosperity in this city—our future should be one in which San Francisco’s young people are not just included in it, but leading it.
I couldn’t be more thrilled and honored to launch my 2016 re-election campaign to serve another term on the Board of Education. There is so much more to do, and with your support, input, and guidance, I am excited I’ll have that chance.
