Welcome from Assistant Superintendent Louise Seitsinger

Welcome to our Curriculum, Assessment, and Instruction district web page.  It is an honor and pleasure to support our district in improving teaching and learning.  We are in a continuous cycle of building a comprehensive and cohesive system of curriculum that includes input from our entire school community.  Our goal is for all students to have access to a guaranteed and viable curriculum.  All administrators, teachers, and students should be clear regarding the grade level and content expectations.  Through this web page we will share curriculum documents, current district goals, and other resources.
