The Educational Services Department works with district and site personnel to support curriculum, instruction and assessment and to navigate national, state and local educational initiatives. Teacher professional development, Common Core Implementation and academic access are within our realm of responsibility, and we work to provide staff with services, data, information, resources and support to meet the educational needs of all students.
