Between spring and summer 2020, Poudre School District teachers and staff took part in more than 20,000 collective hours of remote education training to ensure they are prepared as possible to support students this school year.

That total doesn't include the countless additional hours that individual staff members, school teams and departments have spent training and planning for remote teaching and learning. We are so #PSDProud of all of our staff!
