The Stanford-SFUSD Partnership began in 2009 when visionary leaders at Stanford, SFUSD and California Education Partners came together to improve the links between research and practice in San Francisco’s public schools.


Prior to this, Stanford professors had conducted research in the district on an ad hoc basis. Despite good intentions, research topics were often not linked to questions that teachers and school leaders needed answered. Furthermore, the findings from these research efforts did not typically reach the eyes and ears of district personnel.


With the advent of the Partnership, Stanford research in SFUSD became more relevant and connected to support a larger vision—applied research that informs district policy and practice for the purpose of advancing student achievement, for all students. At any given time, between 25 and 30 coordinated research projects are being implemented in SFUSD under the Partnership.
