Welcome to the Stanford/SFUSD Partnership

About the Partnership

Stanford University and San Francisco Unified School District partnership unites research and practice to shape educational practices and policies that maximize educational experiences for all students. The Partnership matches researchers from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Education with SFUSD district leaders to solve key problems of practice. Together, they create research projects that directly inform the school district’s work to transform teaching and learning for our children in the 21 st  century.
