Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District (FSUSD) was one of thirty Northern California public school districts hand-picked to apply for a new initiative titled Reach for the Upside! This initiative is funded by Genentech in collaboration with Stanford’s Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (the d.school).
Over the last several months, Genentech conducted extensive research on public school districts with strong leadership and a track record of innovation. FSUSD emerged out of this research and was invited to submit an application to participate in a “design sprint.” The “design sprint” will consist of four workshops and three coaching sessions on innovative programming and funding.
