Curriculum and Instruction

The Curriculum and Instruction department provides leadership, support and technical assistance in the critical area of “what to teach and how to teach it” for school districts in Lake County.

A primary focus of the department is to provide leadership for regional programs, such as training and support for new teachers, support of schools and districts who enter program improvement, support for effective use of educational technology, and expertise in the analysis of student achievment data.

The department also sponsors professional development opportunities for teachers and administrators, assists schools in aligning the content and pacing of instruction to the California Standards Tests and High School Exit Exam, provides county-wide coordination of the Lake County College Going Initiative, and sponsors student events such as the Academic Decathlon and Lake County Spelling Bee.
