PFA Re-authorization:  Your City is Listening!

Many of you have asked during the past year when and where will be the best opportunities to speak out about PFA, to share your perspectives with those who need to hear them.

                                                That time is now, and the opportunity is knocking – PFA Town Hall Meetings with each San Francisco district Supervisor are here.                                          

                                                 Supervisors are interested in hearing from YOU! 

Preschool For All (PFA) will end in July, 2015 unless it’s renewed by passage of a new citywide ballot proposition this November.  And your perspective and experience are essential to the continued conversations about the initiative, its successes, and the challenges we still face in early education.

We encourage all PFA parents (both current and past), teachers, and all early care and education stakeholders to attend.

The evening will focus on the reauthorization of the PFA initiative within the context of some of the most pressing issues facing the City, including the crisis of affordability, family flight, and supporting a high-quality public education system that serves all children effectively. The feedback you provide will help best define the next version of PFA, preserving what works in our local system of early childhood education.

Our goal is to encourage families, teachers, and administrators to share their stories, told in their own voices. 

These meetings will provide a safe & welcoming setting for candid conversations about the hopes and concerns of our local parents, teachers, and schools.  These are what constitute our local universal preschool initiative since 2005, and they deserve to be heard by everyone involved.

We invite you to join in building and securing the PFA of 2015 and beyond, and would be honored if you would participate as a representative of your community.  

Your participation is crucial to the success of the event. San Francisco’s decision-makers need to hear from you, your staff, and the families you serve to make “PFA 2.0” the best it can possibly be.  Our local representatives should fully-understand the impact you have made through this city’s unique investment in early education as they consider its future.
