Our Work

Our Work

​​​​​​​​​​​The following list outlines some of the projects that keep us on the forefront of innovation and support the development of college and career-ready graduates. ​

 

ATLAS 

In a collaborative effort with Microsoft, the Fresno Unified School District designed and developed a custom student information system know as ATLAS.  This flexible and robust system has more recently been redesigned to support mobile devices as well as provide dashboard information to teachers and school leaders so that they can use current information for student learning decisions. The ATLAS Scheduler is now being used by all Fresno Unified schools to help place students in appropriate classes based on grade level, student needs and requests.  

 

Office 365 

Office 365 is currently available to all staff and students in the Fresno Unified School District.  With this online tool, Office documents can be created and shared in the cloud within OneDrive.  Staff and students can also collaborate in real-time and access documents from any device.  Office 365 also provides access to district email and a host of other tools such as Class Notebooks, Sway, Yammer, and more. 

 

EduText 

Parents and guardians of our students can sign-up to receive text messages regarding their child's progress in the Fresno Unified School District.  EduText provides live snapshot of a student’s cumulative grades and attendance on a daily or weekly basis.  EduText is a modern means of communication that further engages parents and provides opportunity for healthy conversations around academic improvement, productive study habits and celebrating academic success.

 

Coder Girlz Coding Clubs 

CoderGirlz is a new Fresno Unified School District coding club for girls so schools can better support middle school girls who are curious about coding or already love to code. The club will help girls build self-confidence and interest in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It will also prepare students for Computer Science courses offered at schools.  Learn more at codergirlz.org 

 

Hour of Code

Each year, schools throughout the Fresno Unified School District participate in the Hour of Code​ during the Month of December,​ giving students the exciting opportunity to participate in basic computer programming. Programming experience is not required for teacher or students to particiapte in this exciting event that touches the lives of students around the world! Learn how to teach One Hour of Code!

Ubiquitous Wireless Connectivity 

All schools and departments in our district are now equipped with wireless connectivity throughout the entire campus.  Staff and students can now enjoy the benefits of secure wireless connectivity wherever they are, so that learning and productivity can take place outside of the classroom or office.  Even families living near our schools can take advantage of our "Guest" wireless connection. 


Computer Refresh Program 

This program was implemented in order to keep all staff equipped with current devices that can handle the computing demands they are faced with on a daily basis.  Current or up-to-date computers can lead to improvements in personnel and organizational efficiency and increases in the effective use of technology to support student success.  The scope of the computer refresh program includes teachers, school support staff and principals, and provides them with a new laptop every five years. 

 

Middle School Tournament of Technology 

The annual Middle School Tournament of Technology ​provides an avenue for 7th and 8th grade students to showcase and compete in the areas of coding, robotics, 3D printing, video production, graphic design, and more.  The mission of the tournament is to: 

  • Engage students with a variety of innovative technologies to help develop the 4 C’s of 21st Century learning: Collaboration, Communication, Critical Thinking and Creativity.   

  • Prepare teachers and students for the implementation of the Common Core Standards.   ​

  • Help teachers throughout the district infuse technology into their classrooms to enhance the learning environment of our students.  

 

Technology Support Portal 

In the summer of 2015 we rolled out a new IT service management tool(Cherwell) to help every end user in our system when issues and questions arise.  Cherwell provides improved capabilities such as automating service processes and advanced reporting to greatly improve our response time and customer experience. ​
