About the Partnership

San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD)

The SFUSD-Annenberg Research Partnership engages San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) and Annenberg Institute in a collaboration to foster a thriving learning community and provide solutions to educational challenges in the district and beyond. For over a decade, Dr. Loeb and her team have worked closely with SFUSD leaders to produce knowledge on how to attract, develop, and retain high-quality teachers and school leaders as well as on how to enhance educational opportunities and reduce inequality for students.

The objectives of the partnership are to:

  • Promote a synergistic environment for educators and researchers to collaborate
  • Generate useful and actionable research on trends, programs, and policies that informs and improves educational practices
  • Ensure that research aligns with district and state priorities and leads to evidence-based and data-driven continuous improvement and decision making

Through their work together, Annenberg Institute and SFUSD are at the forefront of creating new knowledge that will contribute to the advancement of the education system on a local, state, and national level.
