New New Tech

Mayor Ed Lee used a Sept. 18 appearance at Junipero Serra Elementary School to launch a new tech initiative for the city’s public schools. Working with the San Francisco Citizens Initiative for Technology and Innovation, the mayor announced that by the end of 2014 the city would pair a technology company with every one of the 116 public schools in the city. The Circle the Schools program will involve the companies making a one-year commitment to the schools, with participation ranging from volunteering for at least three events, donating $5,000, and helping meet the needs of schools with supplies, food or other aid.
