One of seven Board of Supervisors committees, the City and School District Committee is up for a renewal, if the supervisors approve of its continuance.
The supervisors do not have jurisdiction over the San Francisco Unified School District, but they do approve some funding for the schools, which gives them a certain amount of sway.
The committee is not as lively as other supervisors’ committees and was in jeopardy of disappearing altogether.
The committee was established by the board of supervisor in 2003. The committee is made up of members Supervisor Sean Elsernd, committee chair, two other supervisors and three school board members.
This Thursday, the Rules Committee will meet to vote on legislation that would continue to the committee for another year. It has not been all that active so far this year. Since January, the committee has met six times and has recorded nine meeting cancellations.
