Celebrating Women's History Month
Dear SFUSD Families:
Dr. Matt Wayne, SFUSD Superintendent, with his wife and daughter

Happy Women’s History Month! I want to take this opportunity to honor the women in my life, especially my mom, my wife, my daughter, my teachers, and my colleagues, who have all been part of making our world a better place. Across SFUSD this month and all year long, we celebrate and uplift women, as well as gender diversity. In fact, we have guidance to support educators in incorporating gender-inclusive practices and fostering inclusive school communities.


Speaking of students, I hope you had a chance to watch the student performances at the beginning of the School Planning Summit on March 2. In case you missed them or want to watch them again, you can access the video recording online. The talent and brilliance of our students across SFUSD inspires me every day.


At the School Planning Summit, I shared an update about our Resource Alignment Initiative (RAI), a plan for SFUSD to align our resources to our goals for student outcomes. This work began in August 2023 and focuses on the current state of SFUSD’s schools and what steps we need to take to make them a better place for students. You can stay up to date on the Resource Alignment Initiative by visiting the RAI website, which will be updated regularly.


Please keep reading this month’s newsletter for updates about these topics and more.


In community,

Dr. Wayne

Ulloa Elementary students learn organizing, self-respect at BSU

Every other week at Ulloa Elementary School during lunch period, a group of young students gets together with El-Khalid McCree, a parent volunteer, for a regular meeting of the Black Student Union (BSU). The purpose? To learn about and celebrate black excellence, and to build community.


"There is black excellence everywhere that you turn and look," McCree said. "It's important to know that there are people who look like us who have done amazing things on this planet called Earth."
