San Francisco Unified School District has a high need for bilingual teachers who speak Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Tagalog or Korean for the 2014-2015 school year.

Specific openings are posted on an ongoing basis through our online application system. If you are a talented bilingual educator committed to providing all students with the quality education they deserve, we encourage you to apply online today!

As a San Francisco public school educator you’ll have the opportunity to work with a diverse group of students alongside supportive and talented colleagues. You will be an integral part of the district’s effort to close the achievement gap and achieve social justice for all of San Francisco’s students.

The San Francisco Unified School District’s strategic plan, “Impact Learning. Impact Lives.” places access and equity, student achievement, and accountability at the forefront of every child’s education. The ideas and actions in the plan focus on one central idea: every child has the right to be well-educated. SFUSD hires teachers and other credentialed professionals who are committed to delivering rigorous instruction to all students, continuous learning and improvement, creating a culturally responsive classroom environment, and building meaningful connections with families and the community.

Bilingual Education in the San Francisco Unified School District
SFUSD is committed to ensuring that English Learners acquire high levels of English and home language proficiency, academic achievement, and skills that will lead to success in the 21st century. To maximize English Learner access to a quality education, SFUSD is currently enhancing existing English Learner Programs and providing four English Learner Pathways:
1. Dual Language Immersion Pathway: designed to ensure both English Learners and native English speakers develop high levels of English and pathway language proficiency and literacy, as well as academic competency. Designed for a) English Learners whose home language is Cantonese, Korean, Mandarin, or Spanish; b) bilingual students who speak Cantonese, Korean, Mandarin, or Spanish and English; and c) English proficient students.
2. Biliteracy Pathway: designed to ensure English Learners develop high levels of English and home language proficiency and literacy, as well as high levels of academic competency. Designed for English Learners who are native speakers of Cantonese, Filipino, or Spanish.
3. English Plus Pathway: designed to ensure English Learners develop English language proficiency and academic competency. Designed for 1) English Learners from low incidence languages where it is not feasible for the district to offer either a Dual Language Immersion or Biliteracy Pathway and 2) English Learners whose parents wish for their children to be in an intensive English instruction program.
4. Newcomer Pathway: designed to help recently arrived immigrant English Learner students adjust to their new language and culture in a one-year program. Designed for recently arrived immigrant English Learner students who need a period of adjustment and orientation before entering one of the core English Learner Pathways.
