Department of Education Services

  • Our department strives to support teachers, staff, and administrators to improve students’ academic achievement across all content areas. Our office provides assistance for teachers to get the most out of their instruction by finding the best, most data-driven resources for instruction and assessment and to support teachers in delivering standards-aligned curriculum.

    Our goal is to provide a rigorous curriculum equitably across the district. We are working to ensure that all students have equal opportunity to have the same level of learning, and all teachers have the tools they need to help our students achieve their learning goals.
