Report card says SF schools are improving

San Francisco public schools are better preparing students for college and careers, according to a progress report released by the district.

“Walking the Talk,” is an progress report released by the San Francisco Unified School District aimed at showing parents, teachers and district officials that schools are making progress in goals set forth by the strategic plan “Beyond the Talk.”

San Francisco schools made a 16 percentage-point gain in federal testing known as Adequate Yearly Progress.

Included in the district’s vision is a goal to ensure all students graduate from high school and are prepared for college or other career choices. The A-G requirements were introduced to high school freshmen this year to help set them on that course.

According to the report, even with limited to access to funds, San Francisco is increasing the number of students who do well on standardized tests, meeting state and federal benchmarks and graduating from high school on time.
