SFUSD may close one school, overhaul nine others 

San Francisco Unified School District may close one school and put in motion a plan to overhaul nine others, according to a grant application for low performing schools.

The application for the $50 million grant was submitted Friday, according to district officials. In it, the district proposed ways to turn around low-performing schools through nine comprehensive steps.

Among the proposed steps are a common core curriculum, increased professional development, a focus on literacy and creating a college going culture in all secondary schools.

Bryant, George Washington Carver, Cesar Chavez, John Muir, Paul Revere elementary schools were included in the application for overhauls. Everett and Horace Mann middle schools and O’Connell and Mission high schools were also on the list for improvements.
