Curriculum & Instruction Department

The Curriculum and Instruction Department works closely with school sites to ensure that the highest quality curriculum, instructional materials, and learning environment are provided to all our students. This work includes providing staff development opportunities for all staff, textbook adoptions, and ongoing review of course outlines and state standards. We also work closely with the Assessment Department staff to address assessment results in order to improve instruction.
The Power of US in PUSD!
PUSD has been “Learning by Doing” - studying and practicing the core concepts of true Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) at work. As a result of our collaboration in action and with the conviction of a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) to model learning for ALL moving forward, we have identified the following guiding principles for all PUSD PLCs.
