Parents for Public Schools of San Francisco. Keeping the public in education.

Since 1999, Parents for Public Schools – San Francisco has been assisting families and working to ensure quality public schools for all children in our city. We help parents at each stage of the journey, from introducing them to the enrollment lottery process, to developing parent leaders in the schools and at the district, to improving systems at SFUSD and much more.

We provide essential support to all families in every community across our city, and we work to ensure that the full range of parent voices is part of policy-making at the District and Board of Education. Read more >


What's Happening

Our Annual Campaign

As parents and guardians, we know that the work of raising our children is never done. Ensuring our most loved "little ones," no matter how quickly they grow, have access to meaningful and enriching opportunities is a priority.

At PPS-SF, we feel the same way about our work with families. From prospective public school families to those with students preparing to leave the world of high school for college and career, PPS-SF is by the sides of our city's families every step of the way with our array of programs and supports.

During our Annual Campaign, we're asking you -- our workshop participants, our partners, our thought leaders, our families -- to be by our side. Making a contribution to the campaign ensures PPS-SF has the resources to continue to engage, educate, and connect families and keep the public in education.

Please consider making a donation today.
