Mendoza is beginning her second four-year term on the board, and Vice President Yee is in the third year of his second four-year-term, according to the San Francisco Unified School District.

“We need to continue to be good stewards for our kids and their families,” Mendoza said in a statement. “We’re going to have some hard times ahead and will need the support of the greater city and community-based organizations to build more public-private partnerships.”

Mendoza added that the board has been making progress despite being faced with tough decisions, and that board members will strive to “make the process as transparent as possible.”
