Welcome the PGUSD Ed Tech Page.  The world of educational technology is continuously evolving. New tools, techniques, and trends are frequently being presented to teachers and students at all levels. Our goal is to provide educators across the district greater clarity and direction for navigating the Ed Tech world more efficiently so that both classroom instruction and student learning are greatly enhanced.

The PGUSD Ed Tech Mission: 

  • Provide district-wide leadership and guidance in the selection, evaluation, and integration of instructional technology.
  • Design and deliver training programs and products around best practice and application of end-user technologies.
  • Consult and collaborate with school personnel on matters related to the use of technology to improve performance outcomes.
  • Engage the broader school community and outside agencies to elicit input around using technology strategically in support of district goals contained in the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).
