Vision 2020

Quality Schools in Every Neighborhood

To prepare our students for the competitive global economy they will face in the years ahead the San Diego Unified Board of Education has developed a focused, long term plan for student achievement. It culminates with graduation of the Class of 2020. Vision 2020 is a community-based school reform plan that engages all parents, staff, students and community members. It will result in a high level of confidence in our public schools. Between now and 2020 we intend to develop a world-class school system for all of our students.

The Board of Education will hold itself responsible for maintaining the focus of the staff and the community on Vision 2020. The Board will review Vision 2020 at the end of each school year to assess progress towards the goals of the vision. The Board designates to the Superintendent the development of the strategic process for the implementation of the goals of Vision 2020.

Vision 2020 will create a school district that:

  • Creates improved and broader measures of student achievement.
  • Develops schools as neighborhood learning centers.
  • Ensures effective teaching in the classroom 
  • Engages parents and community volunteers in the educational process
  • Facilitates communication and support

There are 12 Indicators of a Quality Neighborhood School.
