Please join San Francisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee, San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) Superintendent Dr. Vincent Matthews, the San Francisco Board of Education, and the board of Spark* SF Public Schools at the 2nd Annual Spark Gala: "Spark a Revolution." 

The Spark Gala is SFUSD’s and Spark* SF Public School’s celebration that brings together our community—from civic and business leaders and local philanthropists, to our educators and parents—to celebrate and recognize the Mayor’s Teacher and Principal of the Year, a tradition that celebrates and acknowledges outstanding San Francisco public school educators and leaders for their dedication and work on behalf of our City’s young people.

In addition to celebrating our outstanding San Francisco educators and leaders, we come together to applaud you and our broader ecosystem of visionary partners who have joined together to truly transform education in this city, empowering our public school system to become an engine for growth and change throughout San Francisco.

Inspired by the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love, we honor SFUSD's policies of inclusion and diversity. Together, we can create an education revolution.
