Local: The Second District PTA supports San Francisco Prop A. Learn more about Prop A 


Proposition A will fix and strengthen San Francisco public schools to ensure a healthy and safe learning environment for our students. The measure will provide much-needed seismic upgrates to school buildings, repair leaky roofs and windows, remove hazardous materials, and upgrade public schools with a 21st century classrooms and learning technology. 

Prop A will kickstart development of a new SFUSD Arts Center and Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, build new schools and classrooms to keep class sizes small, and explore methods for developing affordable housing for school teachers.
