Community Conversations

The PAC, along with other local community organizations and SFUSD, has coordinated and facilitated conversations on issues that affect youth and families in San Francisco.

Current Community Conversations

Currently, PAC, along with other community organizations and SFUSD partners, is leading community conversations to hear from families and community members about their ideas to help inform SFSUD’s Local Control and Accountability Plan. From late February through early April, we will be holding conversations to learn what is working and where the improvements are needed to improve student outcomes, especially for students who have historically been under-served.

PAC Community Reports from Past Conversations

PAC Community Reports are generated through community conversations and additional research that highlight trends and feedback from parents and community members across the district.  The PAC makes special effort to ensure that the voices of historically underrepresented groups are represented in these conversations as well.  Below you will find links to some of our highlighted reports:

Our Children, Our Families Report 2015: This report presents key findings from our community conversations held at SFUSD schools, with district advisories and community organizations and agencies working with SFUSD families. These findings are intended to inform the work of the Our Children, Our Families Council (OCOF Council), a joint initiative between the Office of the Mayor of San Francisco and the San Francisco Unified School District.

LCAP Reports: The PAC, our community partners and district staff from the LCAP Task Force organized and led a series of conversations to share information about SFUSD’s existing LCAP, and hear participants’ questions, suggestions and priorities for the district’s revised LCAP for 2015-2016.
