Welcome to the PGUSD 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.
