How will PAUSD high schools prevent cheating this fall?

I'm curious how PAUSD is planning on enforcing its honor code on tests during remote learning. Even if all tests are open-book, it will be remarkably easy to cheat using google, texting with friends, etc.. While cheaters will always find a way, I would hate if it were so easy that everyone else feels at a huge disadvantage for following the rules.
My understanding is that there are products out there that will do a decent job of preventing cheating. However, these products cost money, possibly require upgraded hardware on students' computers, and most importantly expect some degree of intrusion into the students' privacy. Clearly, the decision about tools to avoid cheating should be made at the district office and not by individual teachers.
So does anyone know what PAUSD is planning?
