MAKE OUR SCHOOLS STRONGER.
San Francisco's public schools are the backbone of our city. More than just learning centers, they provide diverse learning experiences that allow students to explore different careers and interest and be challenged to develop their talents and discover their voices.
Support Emotional Wellness
The COVID-19 pandemic is not only a public health crisis, but also has a large effect on emotional and mental wellbeing. Families weathered unprecedented challenges with the transition to distance learning, and we must support families as a whole while everyone adjusts to the new reality.
Put Students' and Teachers' Health First
Jenny is singularly focused on holding high academic expectations while ensuring healthy and safe classrooms. Back-to-School will look different, and we need to plan for learning to prioritize safety for all.
Commitment to Continuity of Instruction
As SFUSD continues to shift to new methods of teaching and delivering content, our educators and leaders have learned what works, and what doesn't. Our next step is to rollout best practices in technology to improve the teaching system across our schools.
Increase Access to Technology
Jenny has a deep understanding of internet access policy and infrastructure, and also brings considerable experience in school broadband access. She will lead programatic change to help instructors and parents alike, utilize newer technology to the fullest.
Pursue New Resources
Jenny supports the Schools and Communities First Act so that we can reclaim the twelve billion dollars in funding to provide the services that our children and families desperately need during these times.
Empower Student Voices
Jenny takes a student-first approach that prioritizes student voices. For example, she supports the creation of a student advisory committee, and the Vote16 initiative that would extend voting rights to 16 and 17 year-olds in San Francisco municipal elections.
