San Francisco Public Schools are currently facing a substitute teacher crisis. Frequently, substitute jobs are going unfilled. Schools are left to pick up the pieces. Classrooms are understaffed and overcrowded. There is inadequate staffing and support. Students are wasting time and learning opportunities. This is not only a safety issue, but also an issue of equity. Low-income, higher-needs schools have been disproportionally impacted by this crisis.

Join us as we demand the following from the San Francisco Unified School District

  • The SFUSD Human Resources (HR) office deploys to schools all certificated staff from central office, for every unfilled position, until an adequate number of substitutes have been hires
  • Every school is guaranteed site-based sub staffing proportional to their student population
  • HR hires, trains, and maintains a full substitute pool
  • Substitutes are provided for paraprofessionals, secretaries, counselors, nurses, and all other full-time site positions
  • HR hires a full substitute staffing team to review vacancies every morning and find immediate solutions
  • Streamlined system for schools to report substitute no-shows and cancellations, and concerns regarding substitute actions or contract violations

We, educators of San Francisco Public Schools, appreciate your support as we strive to provide the best learning opportunities for our students, families, and teachers.
