    Instruction

    The Department of Instructional Services is responsible for the development, implementation, instructional technology support, and assessment of the district's instructional program. The department's major goal is to provide support to the schools, enabling staff to implement and refine the district's educational program. This goal is accomplished through service to the buildings with the department acting as a resource and clearinghouse. Services of the department include curriculum development, instructional material development and adoptions, instructional strategies, student assessment, staff development, technology applications, and specialized programs (academically talented and gifted programsecond-language programs, Title I reading services, etc.).

    Our schools offer a variety of educational opportunities and support programs for all students. The basic curriculum is aligned to the new Illinois Learning Standards (incorporating the Common Core Standards) and the District 15 Student Performance Targets
