SFUSD Counseling & Post-Secondary Success

The Office of Counseling & Post-Secondary Success, under SFUSD's Student Family Community Support Department, is a three part team that supports SFUSD’s mission, strategic plan and vision by providing high leverage supports to graduate students with the skills necessary to be college and career ready. We focus on removing barriers that inhibit student academic success via policy and institutional practices with special attention to our most vulnerable student populations.

Our Vision

SFUSD students will exemplify the knowledge, skills and attitudes outlined in the Graduate Profile in order to be productive members of their local and global community through the leadership and advocacy of their school site counselors through a Comprehensive School Counseling Program.

Our Mission

The mission of the Office of Counseling and Postsecondary Success is to advocate, prioritize and personalize postsecondary outcomes for all students towards the goals of SFUSD’s Graduate Profile. Using the Comprehensive School Counseling Program framework, the department will work with school site counselors to drive implementation; development as leaders; provide targeted professional development and site based technical coaching; and assist with the integration of district initiatives designated to support the most vulnerable and marginalized youth and their families.
