School district could track student evictions

The San Francisco Unified School District may begin tracking students who are displaced due to evictions and monitoring their performance.

Supervisor Jake McGoldrick has drafted a resolution urging the school district to collect data on students who are evicted and report the findings to the Board of Supervisors. In the past, McGoldrick has suggested that there should be a ban on evicting families with school-age children during the school year.

The Board of Supervisors Land Use and Economic Development Committee will consider the resolution Wednesday. The committee meets at 1 p.m. in City Hall, Room 263.
