Collins, López, and Moliga are out. The voters have overwhelmingly spoken. San Francisco parents and supporters made their voices heard on Tuesday and the message is loud and clear: the San Francisco Unified School Board needs a new direction.

Thank you to all of our parents. This movement was created because parents and families were continually ignored and dismissed. Last Tuesday validated the hard work–parents’ tireless advocacy–that has been building momentum for over a year now. Parents are never to be ignored again.

高勵思(Collins)、盧佩思(López)和莫力加(Moliga)出局

絕大多數的選民都參與了投票。週二,三藩市的家長們和他們的支持者通過選票發出了他們的聲音,傳達的信息清楚而響亮。三藩市聯合校區的教委會需要一個新的方向。

感謝我們所有的家長。這場運動起因於家長們的意見被不斷被忽略和輕視。上週二驗證了家長們長達一年孜孜不倦的努力得到了回報。家長們不可以再被忽視!

School News & Board Report

Budget woes grow
There’s nothing easy about where we’re at with the SFUSD budget — we’re mid-shift now with moving from budgeting for 57,000 students to budgeting for 50,000 students. Our rational minds hear and understand comments like at this week’s school board meeting from state Budget Babysitter, Mr. Elliot Duchon, “I know this is a painful step, but it’s a necessary one.” Still, our hearts just sink, hearing public comments from families and teachers at Sheridan, Cobb, Lakeshore.

Noticias escolares y reporte e informe de la junta

Crecen los problemas presupuestarios
No hay nada fácil acerca de dónde estamos con el presupuesto del SFUSD: ahora estamos a mitad de camino con el cambio de un presupuesto para 57,000 estudiantes a un presupuesto para 50,000 estudiantes. Nuestras mentes racionales escuchan y entienden comentarios como en la reunión de la junta escolar de esta semana del niñero del presupuesto estatal, el Sr. Elliot Duchon, “Sé que este es un paso doloroso, pero es necesario”. Aún así, nuestros corazones simplemente se encogen al escuchar los comentarios públicos de las familias y los maestros en Sheridan, Cobb, Lakeshore.

財政預算問題麻煩增多
關於三藩市聯合校區(SFUSD)的財政預算,現在處於非常不容易的階段——我們正處於從 57000 名學生的預算轉向 50000 名學生的預算轉變過程中。儘管從理性的角度,我們可以理解州預算顧問Elliot Duchon 先生在本週的學校教委會會議上所作的“我知道這是一個痛苦的步驟,但這是必要的一步” 的評論,但當我聽到來自 Sheridan、Cobb、Lakeshore 的家長和老師的公開評論時,我們的心情還是很沉重的。

Yep. What a month.

But shifting mindsets… HAPPY 100 DAY!! We can’t believe how different *this* 100 Day feels compared to last year’s. Do you remember our “100 Days and Counting” email campaign? Hundreds of your emails flooded the inboxes of SFUSD leadership and school board, with stories of desperation and pleas to get our classrooms reopened for struggling students. We’re grateful to be in a better place, on this 100 Day.

學校新聞

目前,整個三藩市聯合校區( SFUSD) 的新冠病例陽性率在不斷下降,並且校內傳播也持續最小化。其他值得慶祝的事情包括:過去兩週,全三藩市和三藩市聯合校區(SFUSD) 的病例數一直在下降,家長和教育工作者可能會感覺壓力稍微小點。

三藩市聯合校區更新了完全接種疫苗的學生的隔離政策。是否還有完全接種疫苗的學生在被確定為密切接觸者後被要求隔離呢?值得慶幸的是,三藩市聯合校區剛剛更新了的他們的政策,他們是不應被要求被隔離的。本週在三藩市公共衛生局(DPH) 和三藩市聯合校區的政策之間存在一些讓人迷惑的地方,但現在都已經梳理清楚了。可能有時我們對學校管理人員需要些耐心,因為畢竟這個月的《健康指導》每週都在變,有時甚至每天都在變,並且信息在加州衛生服務部,三藩市公共衛生局,三藩市聯合校區,學校/教室(CADPH→SFDPH→SFUSD→學校/教室)這個鏈條進行傳遞也需要一定時間。

Community comes together to address bumpy start to 2022 🤝 SFUSD + Parents + SF Business = Supports to kids & teachers

2022, who asked for you anyway?! To say SFUSD has had a bumpy start to this new year is an understatement. What we thought was overwhelming in the fall, well, January is presenting next level. Teachers are stressed and lacking PPE, principals are able to do nothing beyond contact tracing, and parents are feeling a mixture of confused, anxious, and helpless.

But this week our community showed what it’s capable of when things hit a low.
