How South San Francisco USD  is transforming their approach to extra help

Keith Irish, Assistant Superintendent, Educational Services, explains how SSFUSD is scaling up homework help, using data to adjust instructional practices, and getting more thank yous from teachers than ever.

Replacing homework centers

"Our school board agrees that even when we return to in-person learning, we would love to continue this partnership and dissolve the homework center model because we think we can serve more students this way in a more equitable manner."

— Keith Irish, Assistant Superintendent, Educational Services, South San Francisco Unified School District, CA

Unprecedented data on learning

"We're starting to see patterns in what the kids are asking questions on, which informs ed services, which means we can readjust our scope and sequence and talk about instructional practices.
We just have more information than we ever had before. The kids don't even know that they're inadvertently telling me what's going on and what we need to fix and rectify, so that is huge."

More thank yous than ever

"In my role, I don't get thank yous from teachers very often. With Paper, I got emails from teachers saying, 'Mr. Irish, this is great. Why didn't you do this in August? When is the next training coming?'"
