News & Events


The San Dieguito Union High School District is asking for input from staff, parents and students as our new Instructional Technology Vision draft is being fine tuned.
Back in 2012, we asked for your input as our Educational Technology Vision was finalized, and we really received valuable information about expectations and perceptions of our teachers and students with the use of technology in the educational environment and how it compares to responses from around the state and nation.

We are asking for your help once again.

The 2014 Speak Up Survey contains about 30 questions and we need as many students, parents and staff to complete the survey as possible.  The link below is for everyone. Parents and staff don't need a password, but students do. The password for students is "12wombats". Please forward this email to your students so they can participate.

Thank you in advance for assisting in the education of your children (and future students) in this ever evolving world of technology in education.
