Information about Measles Vaccinations
There has been a recent outbreak of measles in California and neighboring states. The San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) and the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) have collaborated to offer free measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccines to current SFUSD students. All families are encouraged to first seek care with their primary health care provider, if they have one.
If your child needs a vaccine, contact the School Health Center at 415-242-2615 for more information or go to one of our onsite clinics. Find out more about measles vaccinations and where to get them.

CORE Waiver Renewal and Proposed Amendments
Along with the six other California Office to Reform Education (CORE) districts, SFUSD has been working to develop and implement the School Quality Improvement System (SQIS) as a guideline on how to best include equity in academic, social-emotional and culture-climate domains. This work is what the CORE waiver is based on and what we will use in place of No Child Left Behind (NCLB) guidelines. The School Quality Improvement System and the CORE waiver are works in progress. In March, SFUSD in partnership with other participating districts will request an extension of the waiver and additional amendments. General public comments may be provided through: http://bit.ly/CORErenewal, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, faxing 916-244-0250, calling 916-596-2548, or sending mail to 1107 9th Street, Suite 500, Sacramento, CA 95814.
