InnovationU serves as a point of connection for all 4,000 employees across our district to collaborate and discuss priorities for the District. The results from the challenge will provide input for this year's LCAP plan. Stay tuned for more information and how to access InnovationU.

NEW PUSD TECHNOLOGY PLAN

Next week we will be launching the process to develop a Technology and All Students Achieving Plan. A Steering Committee comprised of classified and certificated staff, parents, students and community members will lead this effort. The initial work of this year will focus on comprehensive input established with broad stakeholder engagement within the Local Accountability Plan. The Steering Committee will be reviewing current research and literature, other district tech plans and map out the strategy for developing a new technology plan.
