San Francisco's Our Children, Our Families Council

 

In November 2014, the voters approved Proposition C which created the Our Children, Our Families Council (OCOF), an advisory body co-led by the Mayor and San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) Superintendent that aims to align city, school district, and community efforts to improve outcomes for children, youth, and families. The Our Children, Our Families Council will create a shared outcomes framework that will articulate the milestones we want all children, youth and families to reach. The Council will also develop a five-year plan with recommendations on how to reach those outcomes. Underpinning all of the Council’s efforts will be a new level of data-sharing between the city and school district to allow services to be better coordinated. The Council will also create, maintain and make available an inventory of all citywide services for children and youth, including state and federally funded programs.
