Administrators from the South San Francisco Unified School District spent a portion of the evening of April 20 describing the District’s ambitious goals, successes, achievements and programs during a “State of the District” event at Baden High School. Led by District Superintendent Dr. Shawnterra Moore, speakers listed a variety of positive District developments, including:
The selection of two new provisional Trustees;
the development of a strategic plan;
continuation of a close relationship with Genentech Corp.;
the implementation of an early intervention literacy program (Big Lift);
the creation of a new Middle College program in conjunction with Skyline College in San Bruno;
an emphasis on an appreciation of ethnic/cultural diversity;
continued progress on Measure J school construction projects;
and a number of specific awards and honors for students and staff at several schools.
In spite of a series of challenges experienced by the District in recent years, Dr. Moore, who is completing her first full year as the District’s administrative leader, emphasized that worthwhile things are occurring in classrooms throughout South San Francisco. A key aim of the “State of the District” presentation was to highlight some of those.
More than 100 people attended the event at the District’s adult school. South San Francisco Unified, which has an operating budget of more than $80 million, has about 9,000 students in 15 schools; it is the largest unified public school district (kindergarten through grade 12) between San Francisco and Palo Alto.
