SFPS is excited to support school and community-driven summer programs for a second year! We invite staff and partners to apply to provide creative summer programming at https://forms.gle/vaXCHPxAYQpf4wM37 . This call for proposals closes on March 10th! For questions, please contact William Rodriguez at email@example.com. "We flipped the script on extended learning last year by partnering with our community. The result is a new, exciting community partnership model for SFPS summer and after-school programming," said Superintendent Hilario "Larry" Chavez. "We invite you to apply to continue the fun and learning in 2023." SFPS and a cadre of inspiring community partners provided 2,656 students, or 21 percent of the district’s population, with free summer programming last year. Thirty-three programs were offered at 13 different SFPS sites. Summer programs to provide student enrichment and close learning gaps are supported by federal pandemic relief funding.
