San Francisco California - Bridge To Success
Leaders from the City and County of San Francisco have several formal partnerships with the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) and San Francisco State University. The city also joined with the City College of San Francisco, SFUSD, and others to create the Bridge to Success postsecondary success initiative, one of several multi-sector partnerships supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's Communities Learning in Partnership (CLIP) initiative. The city provides significant funding to SF Promise, a dedicated fund that seeks to guarantee a spot at SFSU for every participating sixth grader in SFUSD schools. Among the many programs in which the city and school district collaborate are The Partnership for Achievement, GEAR-UP, SF Promise, career and technical education, and apprenticeships.
