Introducing Your 2022-23 SFUSD Student Delegates

Hello from Isabella

Hi everybody! We hope that everyone has had a nice start to the school year. For those of you who may not know, my name is Isabella Hansen, and I am a senior at RASOTA. I serve as the SFUSD Student Advisory Council elected Interim Student Delegate.


Hello from Cal

Hello everyone! My name is Cal Kinoshita, and I’m a senior at Lowell High School. I am your elected student delegate, and I can’t wait to move forward with resolutions that tackle the issues facing our district!


What is the SFUSD Student Advisory Council? 

The SFUSD Student Advisory Council is a group composed of representatives who come from any school in SFUSD to help advise the Board of Education, introduce resolutions and advocate for their school community. We are still looking for representatives from the following schools: Mission, John O’Connell, Ida B. Wells, Downtown, Independence, San Francisco International, The Academy, June Jordan School for Equity, Thurgood Marshall, Raoul Wallenberg and Burton. You can apply online. We meet biweekly from 6:00 - 9 p.m. at 555 Franklin and dinner will be provided! 


What Do Student Delegates Do? 

The Student Delegates serve as a liaison between SFUSD’s greater student body and the Board of Education. We share student perspectives on critical matters facing our schools. We represent all of SFUSD’s almost 50,000 students.

A good way to keep up with SAC and Student Delegate news is to follow our Instagrams at @sfusdsac and @sfusdstudentdelegates. Feel free to reach out via Instagram with any questions or concerns. You can also find information about upcoming Board meetings on our Student Delegate Instagram page as well. You will be hearing from us more monthly through these newsletters, so keep an eye out!


In Community,

Isabella Hansen

Happy Latinx Heritage Month!
