Welcome!

The Palo Alto Technology Collaboration Hub (PATCH) was created to support students, staff, and parents, working together as collaborative teams to find ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY & ACCESSIBILITY solutions. Our mission is to help students gain access to the curriculum and reach their full learning potential in the least restrictive environment. We are big believers in the UNIVERSAL DESIGN FOR LEARNING FRAMEWORK, and apply these principles to our work throughout the district.

PATCH is a place where educational teams can meet to brainstorm, experiment with various hi-tech & lo-tech tools, and gain experience through professional development trainings.
