While you were away...

The summer months are always busy for us at SFUSD as we prepare for the next school year, and this summer was no exception. Here's a short list of the work done while families took a break from school.

SFUSD's Facilities and the Bond Program was hard at work:
  • Approximately $150 million in construction work was done at more than 35 school sites. 
  • Ida B. Wells High School and Daniel Webster Elementary School are both moving back to school sites that have been completely transformed. 
  • Students and staff will be returning to 21st century classrooms at James Lick Middle, Presidio Middle and Visitacion Valley Middle, Mckinley Elementary, Longfellow Elementary, Gordon J. Lau Elementary, Visitacion Valley Elementary and Burton High School. 
  • Lowell High School has a brand new classroom building. 

But that's not all...

  • Custodial services cleaned and polished over 9 million square feet of buildings and 3000 classrooms. 
Phew! The lights are on and the doors are open for all of our new and returning students. Welcome!
