Student Device Initiative

One of Pleasanton USD's Strategic Plan goals is to "optimize student learning using innovative technologies." Students and teachers use internet enabled devices to access and think critically about a wide variety of information, create content, and collaborate with each other and with other citizens of our increasingly interconnected world. Many of our curricular and assessment resources are now available online.

Pleasanton has been incorporating "blended learning" — or the instructional approach that mixes online and traditional classroom activities in combination with each other — into our schools since the advent of the 21st century.

Student Device and Google Account Monitoring (Spring 2020-21 pilot):

To help keep your child more scholarly online, Pleasanton Unified School District is piloting digital classroom management programs called GoGuardian and Blocksi from now up until the end of the school year.

A digital classroom management program helps teachers support student work online.  It is a teaching tool that we believe will best support our students. We have chosen to pilot these services to:

  • Help students stay focused on school activities when learning online
  • Help assess students’ progress towards class assignments
  • Facilitate communication between teachers and students during class time.

To learn more about these programs, please review this Classroom Management Programs document.
