The achievement gap is the greatest civil rights issue facing the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD). A new student assignment system honors choice, provides equitable access to the range of opportunities, and helps reverse the trends of racial isolation and concentrations of underserved students. Come hear from Orla O’Keeffe, special assistant to the superintendent, and Darlene Lim, executive director of the SFUSD Educational Placement Center, about how the new student assignment system works.
