District Replaces Underperforming Network To Realize Bold Educational Vision
Located in Alameda County, 25 miles east of San Francisco, Dublin USD is seeing its student population soar. Buildings are being renovated and new facilities are going up to accommodate growth.
Transitioning to digital learning is one of the highest priorities and passions for the Dublin Unified School District (USD). “Digital learning connects schools to a bigger universe of educational resources,” says Stephen Hanke, Superintendent of Dublin USD. “As we grow, it gives us new ways to reach students, parents, teachers, and the community. It lets us reimagine everything from courses to physical classrooms.”
Moving to the Common Core standard was a cornerstone of the district’s digital learning strategy. But it required that all students have access to technology in order to read across multiple types of media, write, conduct research, and make digital presentations. To provide this access, Dublin USD planned to migrate all of its schools to a 1:1 computing model—rolling out 10,000 Chromebooks—and standardize on cloud-based Google Apps for Education.
