Technology Services | Sharpstown HS PowerUpSharpstown's PowerUp technology team is here to help students get connected. PowerUp started as a 1-to-1 (1 laptop per student) initiative to replace textbooks and increase student use and familiarity in a growing world of technology. With recent events, our students and teachers are better prepared for online learning because of the PowerUp program.
