Mayor Lee on New SFUSD Superintendent Vincent Matthews

“I am pleased to welcome Dr. Vincent Matthews as the new Superintendent of the San Francisco Unified School District.

Dr. Matthews is an accomplished educator with an impressive history of bringing positive changes to various educational institutions, and he has shown a dedicated and tireless approach to improving the lives of the many students he has taught over the years. We know that he will work productively with Interim Superintendent Myong Leigh to develop a seamless transition at the SFUSD.

As a native San Franciscan who was educated here from preschool until college, Dr. Matthews has a unique insight into the challenges and issues facing our education system. As a graduate of the public school system and a former teacher at the SFUSD, he possesses an institutional knowledge of the culture and history of the school district. As a result, he can provide detailed, analytical solutions to the challenges we face.

We are excited to have Dr. Matthews back in San Francisco and we look forward to working together with him on our many important education issues.”
