The goal of the Loma Prieta Curriculum and Instruction Department is to ensure that all students achieve their full academic and social potential. We are currently implementing the instructional shift to the Common Core State Standards, excited by the increased focus on critical thinking and problem-based learning. We take our mission of preparing our students for an academically rigorous high school very seriously and are proud of our students’ many achievements. Teachers in the Loma Prieta School District strive to meet the educational needs of each child. We have a long standing commitment to educating the whole child by offering a comprehensive, integrated curriculum focused on the knowledge and processes students need for success in school and life.
The Instructional Leadership Team works collaboratively to ensure that the highest quality curriculum, instructional materials and learning environments are provided to all our students. Curriculum and Instruction provides professional development opportunities for all staff and administrators, monitors local and state assessments, and oversees textbooks. The Curriculum and Instruction Department coordinates the work of School Site Council, Project Cornerstone, Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment (BTSA), as well as assuring compliance with all academic and safety regulations, reporting, and discipline policies. Within our site, you will find more detailed information on many of the signature efforts of this department. Should you want further information, please feel free to contact our office.
