(a) Charter Section 16.127-2 creates the Our Children, Our Families Council ("the Council"). Additional Charter sections set out the composition and the powers and duties of the Council. Charter Section 16.127-7 states that the Board of Supervisors shall, by ordinance, further provide for the membership, structure, functions and support of the Council.
(b) In order to advance a Citywide vision centered on the needs of children, youth, and families, City leaders and departments, the San Francisco Unified School District ("SFUSD"), and community partners must come together to coordinate their efforts across agencies and develop a strategy for achieving shared goals. The purpose of the Children and Families Plan to be developed by the Council will be to create an aligned and connected system of programs and services, in order to strengthen the City's ability to best serve children, youth and their families, with the specific goals of promoting coordination among and increased accessibility to such programs and services, and enhancing their overall effectiveness. In order to ensure that all children and youth in every neighborhood, especially those neighborhoods with the greatest needs, have access to the resources to achieve, the Council will be responsible for developing a Citywide vision, Citywide shared priorities, Citywide program goals, and Citywide best practices for addressing those needs.
