Early Education Investments

SFUSD is a PreK-12 District because we understand that high-quality Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-K) instructions with rich teacher-child interactions play a key role in the development of early literacy, math, and social and emotional skills, which predict academic and socio-emotional outcomes in higher grades and underpin economic success later in life. Investments in Early Education overlap with investments in K-12 learning, with a focus on PreK-3rd grade, as well as on family and community engagement and outreach to support child development from infancy. Early Education in SFUSD helps to ensure developmental and learning foundations for academic success and for lifelong learning with a focus on equity of opportunity for diverse, traditionally underserved learners.
