Poway Unified School District (PUSD), the 3rd largest district in San Diego County, is “Creating Culture and Conditions to Empower World-Class Learners.” PUSD’s Technology and Innovation team identified several enduring practices “to connect the best practices of virtual instruction to in-person learning.”
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.
