San Francisco has committed to spend $44 million to construct homes for its public school employees.
 
According to a San Francisco Examiner report, Mayor Ed Lee announced that the city will build 135 affordable units at the former Francis Scott Key Elementary School in the Outer Sunset section of the city. The housing units will be offered to 80 middle-income teachers and 55 public school paraprofessionals.
 
“We couldn’t afford to sit back and wait for solutions to slowly develop when it came to housing for our teachers,” the mayor said in an e-mail. “Our educators make up a key part of working class families in this city. We need to find solutions to keep them living in San Francisco.”
 
However, the mayor did not say when construction is expected to begin or conclude, nor have any plans been made to determine which public school employees will be eligible for housing consideration.
