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.
All parents and/or guardians of students who are African or of African-American descent are welcome to be engaged, empowered and uplifted to make decisions that will improve the quality of education for our students.

Attendance Matters Project Attendance Study
November 2, 2015
We are happy to announce a partnership with the San Mateo County Office of Education and Harvard University to conduct a study leading to improving attendance in school.
The Attendance Matters Project is an innovative year-long, collaborative research study with San Mateo County School Districts, the San Mateo County Office of Education, The Big Lift, and researchers at the Harvard Kennedy School led by Professor Todd Rogers. The Attendance Matters Project develops a low-cost scalable intervention addressing parental beliefs and expectations around school attendance. Through tailored messages delivered to parents via USPS mail, text message, email, and/or phone calls, the Harvard research team hypothesizes that this strategy could prove to be a powerful, cost-effective and scalable complement to other more resource-intensive attendance interventions.
The San Mateo County Office of Education will work closely with participating districts to share relevant data with the research team at Harvard, and the researchers in turn, will create and deliver helpful messages to parents. Many of our families will soon be receiving survey information and other correspondence regarding the Attendance Matters Project from the San Mateo County Office of Education.
Should you receive information regarding the project, we encourage your participation, as this will strengthen our collective efforts to improve attendance, which will lead our students to greater success.
