Manteca Unified wants parents as well as the community to become more informed of the districtwide Going Digital Initiative.

They are offering Education Tech Tours where community members can participate in a two-hour tour of a school site and the District Information Technology department to see Going Digital in action. Participants will learn about Online Safety and Classroom Management, Technology Use in the Classroom, Online Learning tools, and the MUSD District IT department. Tours are limited in number and are by appointment only. Please call (209) 858.0845 to schedule a tour.

Manteca Unified has scheduled seven Family Technology Training sessions throughout the 2015-2016 school year. These sessions are designed to be attended by parents and their students to show some of the features our public website offers, some of the technology tools that students are learning and how parents can help them be successful.

They request that parents bring their student-issued district device to participate. They will learn how to use OneNote, Office 365, and be able to ask questions about other technology tools that we have in place here at MUSD. To sign up for this opportunity, visit

You can learn how to use OneNote —  the class notebook and know what was assigned that day— and how your student can save all their work to be accessed from any computer. We will also demonstrate some of the other technology tools used in Manteca Unified School District.
