About Us

Equitable Opportunity. Equitable Technology.

The SFUSD Department of Technology (DoT) leads SFUSD’s efforts to transform into a digital district.

Under the leadership of our Chief Technology Officer, Melissa Dodd, the department convenes district, community, and industry leaders to align resources and investments strategically and to prioritize major technology projects in a coherent way to enable the district to embrace a digital approach to education that is interactive, intuitive, and personalized to the needs of our students, educators, and families. This Digital District Plan articulates the role technology will play as a critical enabler to our vision, building on the foresight of both our education professionals and thought leaders within our communities and across the country.

Vision 2025: Building a Digital District

To deliver upon the vision of a world-class education, SFUSD will need to embrace a digital approach to education based on the best of the changing technologies around us.

From the lunchroom to the classroom, the promise of technology to positively impact the learning and lives of our students is clear. Our vision clarifies how SFUSD is taking a leadership role to innovate educational equity and excellence for all our students. The time is right to let our community know that investing in our equity agenda will ultimately help solve one of the key challenges we face today, which is maintaining a diverse and vibrant community in San Francisco.
