Equity in Education: How San Diego Unified School District Leverages Trox’s Technology Solutions to Better Serve All Students

As the second-largest school district in California, San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) has more than 100,000 students enrolled across its 181 schools. SDUSD is also one of the most diverse districts in the state, serving low- to high-income neighborhoods and everything in between.

Equal Access for All

Equity is a critical issue in SDUSD, and even more so during the coronavirus pandemic. SDUSD has been a 1:1 district for 12 years, so having a device in every student’s hand was nothing new but became even more of a priority as schools shuttered.

Administrators had to be diligent to ensure each student had equal access to education, no matter what their new learning environment looked like. They also had to think about planning for the eventual return to in-person instruction.

New Technology for a New Way of Learning

Trox partnered with the district’s technology team, providing consultation and devices to support teachers simultaneously instructing students in the classroom and at home. SDUSD also relied on advice from Trox’s team of experts to find new ways for teachers to assess their students’ progress.

Looking ahead, SDUSD administrators want to continue fostering an equitable learning environment while helping teachers create lessons that will raise test scores and better prepare students for college and career.
