Fact-Checking the Court Order on Lowell High School

Current status

In accordance with this order, Superintendent Matthews will introduce a resolution for first reading on Dec. 7, 2021, that recommends SFUSD utilize the same admissions policy for Lowell for the 2022–23 school year as it did for the current school year.

A little context

Folks behind the lawsuit have been working hard to push a false narrative about the court decision, and how the Board should move forward. Many of the same people are behind the efforts to recall the Board. They are very organized and well funded and have help from some in the media and also misinformation campaign specialists.

The most diverse class in decades

Lastly, I would be remiss if I did not specifically acknowledge the Black and Latinx communities for their valuable contributions to Lowell High School, and recognize the wonderful new students and families who were able to enroll this year as a result of opening up Lowell’s admission policy. Data on freshmen enrollment shows it is one of the most diverse entering classes Lowell has ever seen.

Good afternoon, President Lopez and Commissioners of the San Francisco Board of Education,
