SFUSD schools to receive funds for low-income students 

The California Department of Education has named 20 San Francisco public schools recipients of the Title I Academic Achievement Award for this school year. Each award-winning school will qualify for Title I funding, a federally funded program designed to improve the academic achievement of low-income students.

Title I schools must make significant gains on the Academic Performance Index, the state’s accountability model, and enroll at least 40 percent of socio-economically disadvantaged students.

Inspection, planning agencies to discuss coordination

The Building Inspection and Planning commissions will hold a joint public hearing today at 5:30 p.m. in Room 250, City Hall, as part of an ongoing effort to improve coordination between the two departments. The meeting will also present an informational report on the most current draft of the Community Safety Element of The City’s General Plan, and possibly take action to establish criteria requesting technical expertise and advice from the Department of Building Inspection and Fire Department at the earliest stages of reviews for certain types of projects, such as tall buildings, steep slopes and difficult site conditions.


Committee OKs release of funds for violence reduction

A Board of Supervisors committee voted Wednesday to release $1.2,000,000 in reserve money to help pay for the Police Department’s violence reduction program.

The money was requested last year by the Police Department, but put on hold by the board until it could be better determined that the SFPD was actually in need of the money for the current budget year.
