Welcome Back Everyone!

 Dear Parents and Families, 


On behalf of the staff at Abraham Lincoln High School, I am happy to welcome you to the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year.  


As most of you know, Mr. Barnaby Payne was appointed to take the helm at the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts over the summer.  I’m sure that you feel, as I do, the huge loss that his unexpected departure will be for all of us.  I am humbled and honored to have been appointed to take over the leadership at Abraham Lincoln School as  your new principal.  I have been a Counselor and Assistant Principal at Lincoln for the last 12 years and have had the privilege to be Mr. Payne’s colleague for the last 10 years. We have worked closely together to insure that this transition is seamless and transparent. 


I am excited to announce our Administrative Team.  Ms. Gina Ferrante, who has served as an Administrator at the elementary, middle and high school levels for over 20 years, is returning as our Assistant Principal of Curriculum and Instruction.  In addition, Ms. Adrienne Smith, with 20 years of experience with SFUSD and most recently from Lowell High School, joins us as our Assistant Principal of Pupil Services. Completing our team, Dr. Lance Tagomori continues as Assistant Principal in charge of Budgeting, Buildings & Grounds and Student Activities.  We are looking forward to the new perspectives and energy that our new team and staff will bring to our school.


We know that our success is in large part due to a strong partnership with you, the parents, families and community to ensure our children achieve their highest potential.  We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and community.  We know the critical role that you play in making a difference in your child’s education and want to be as available to you as we can be.  We have an active PTSA and Alumni Association that supports the students and school community. All of us look forward to continue building a stronger relationship with each of you in the upcoming year.  


As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop by or call to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet.


Our first day of school is Monday, August 15, 2016 starting at 8am. I look forward to working with you and your child toward another productive and successful year for all of our students.

Dear SFUSD Families:  


I am writing to you on behalf of all of my colleagues on the SFUSD Board of Education.


Given the news of Superintendent Richard A. Carranza’s likely departure to serve as Houston’s new superintendent, the Board of Education has moved swiftly to ensure a smooth transition and continued positive momentum for our district.


While we begin the community process of searching for a new superintendent to serve our district, the Board of Education is united in choosing Deputy Superintendent Myong Leigh as SFUSD’s interim superintendent.


Mr. Leigh has been with SFUSD since 2000 and has successfully managed day-to-day operations and overseen key district initiatives. Our district has tremendous leadership throughout our schools and central offices. Mr. Leigh will be working with a great team at SFUSD.  


We are grateful to have had Superintendent Carranza at the helm for the past seven years--four as superintendent and three as a deputy. Under his leadership, SFUSD has maintained a focus on students’ academic growth through effective common-core aligned teaching and learning while also developing students’ social, emotional and physical well being. Our teachers and other have received more resources to do their critical work, including greater compensation, professional learning opportunities and access to technology.


The board takes seriously our responsibility to ensure the most capable and qualified leader for our school district moving forward. In the near future there will be a public meeting to discuss a selection process for the next superintendent of schools. Our national search process will be inclusive, transparent, and thorough.  


Without a doubt, we will prioritize finding a leader who shares our vision for ensuring every graduate is ready to succeed in college and careers. We will prioritize someone who has a track record of leading around our enduring goals of student achievement, access, equity, and accountability. And we will seek someone who can work with you and our entire community to move our district closer to our vision.


As we embark on the search for a new leader for SFUSD, input from our families is critical. Please check our website,, for updates on future public meetings where the Board will gather input on the superintendent search and selection process.


All our school administrators are looking forward to greeting you and your children back to school on August 15.




Matt Haney

President, SF Board of Education


NEW UC Personal Insight Questions for Fall 2017 Freshmen Applicants.  Applicants must respond to 4 out of the following 8 Insight Questions.  Each response is limited to a maximum of 350 words.

  1. Describe an example of your leadership experience in which you have positively influenced others, helped resolve disputes, or contributed to group efforts over time.
  2. Every person has a creative side, and it can be expressed in many ways: problem solving, original and innovative thinking, and artistically, to name a few.  Describe how you express your creative side.
  3. What would you say is your greatest talent or skill?  How have you developed and demonstrated that talent over time?
  4. Describe how you have taken advantage of a significant educational opportunity or worked to overcome an educational barrier you have faced.
  5. Describe the most significant challenge you have faced and the steps you have taken to overcome this challenge.  How has this challenge affected your academic achievement?
  6. Describe your favorite academic subject and explain how it has influenced you.
  7. What have you done to make your school or community a better place?
  8. What is the one thing that you think sets you apart from other candidates applying to the University of California?

Writing tips

Here are some tips and techniques to help you get started.

Start early.

Give yourself plenty of time for preparation, careful composition and revisions.

Write persuasively.

Making a list of accomplishments, activities, awards or work will lessen the impact of your words. Expand on a topic by using specific, concrete examples to support the points you want to make.

Use “I” statements.

Talk about yourself so that we can get to know your personality, talents, accomplishments and potential for success on a UC campus. Use “I” and “my” statements in your responses.

Proofread and edit.

Although you will not be evaluated on grammar, spelling or sentence structure, you should proofread your work and make sure your writing is clear. Grammatical and spelling errors can be distracting to the reader and get in the way of what you’re trying to communicate.

Solicit feedback.

Your answers should reflect your own ideas and be written by you alone, but others — family, teachers and friends — can offer valuable suggestions. Ask advice of whomever you like, but do not plagiarize from sources in print or online and do not use anyone's published words but your own.

Copy and paste.

Once you are satisfied with your answers, save them in plain text (ASCII) and paste them into the space provided in the application. Proofread once more to make sure no odd characters or line breaks have appeared.


This is one of many pieces of information we consider in reviewing your application. Your responses can only add value to the application. An admission decision will not be based on this section alone.

Additional instructions for active military, veterans and dependants

Because UC is interested in knowing about your or a family member's military service, you may wish to use this section to communicate the following:

  • Describe how your military service has been instrumental in developing your educational plans.
  • Indicate if you're affiliated with the military, such as the spouse or dependent of someone who is on active duty or a current participant in an ROTC-type program.

What about the “Additional comments” section?

After you complete the personal insight questions, you will see another section called “Additional Comments.” This is an optional section and should not be used as a continuation of your responses to the personal questions. Instead, you should use this section to:

  • Provide additional clarification on important details in your application, such as honors, awards, activities.
  • Share information regarding a nontraditional school environment or unusual circumstances.
  • Describe anything else that you HAVE NOT had the opportunity to include elsewhere in your application.

There is a 550 word limit to this section.
