Substitutes are an important educational component in the South San Francisco Unified School District because teachers and paraprofessionals occasionally need a substitute for either professional or personal reasons.
To ensure that the district has a large pool of qualified substitutes available, our Human Resources department continually recruits substitute teachers and paraprofessionals.
Three years ago, San Mateo County leaders and 200 local organizations made a heartfelt commitment to help all of our kids learn to read and succeed. This extraordinary community effort will offer inspiring Summer programs for low income kids, providing enriching experiences and helping to reduce Summer learning loss.
Google.org is giving $5 million to local nonprofits with the most innovative ideas. From a group of about 800 applications, The Big Lift was chosen as one of the ten finalists.
Between now and October 20th, the public will vote to select the top four winners, who will each receive $500,000. With your vote, The Big Lift and our kids can win!
Everyone can vote, so please share this with all your family and friends.
