Poway Unified School District


Previously, PUSD had a learning management system that was “hit-or-miss,” particularly at the elementary level, according to Brenda Gillies, Technology and Innovation Coach. To provide a more modern, user-friendly tool for all levels, they switched to Canvas LMS.

Initially, Canvas LMS was used to varying degrees across the district, Gillies explained. Schools across PUSD needed a better way to streamline communication and course content delivery with a districtwide consensus on taking full advantage of this tool.

Like many other districts realized, the onset of the pandemic radically changed the typical school day and came with a myriad of challenges. PUSD took this as an opportunity to “expand their mindsets about learning” and the district committed to several key initiatives:

  • Innovative Professional Learning Model
  • Personalized Learning
  • Racial Equity and Inclusive Practices
  • 1:1 Technology
  • Building Tech Capacity
  • Virtual Learning Academy

The Technology and Innovation team later compiled stakeholder feedback – classroom teachers, teacher leaders, principals, directors, and students – to identify which practices added value to in-person instruction moving forward.
