The Enterprise Elementary School District Instructional Services (IS) Department's overall goal and mission is to provide support and assistance for administrators, teachers, and staffs so that our dedicated personnel can provide top quality service and instruction for students and families.
Our Instructional Services Department is responsible for many curricular pieces in the district. The department works in conjunction with teachers and administrators to develop and carry out a comprehensive Staff Development Plan. This plan is developed based upon areas of need expressed in surveys, assessment data, and our District's Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).
The IS Department oversees the District's transition to Common Core, English Language learner program, instructional technology services, GATE Program, and preschools. In addition, the development and revisions of District assessments, performance tasks, and our grade level, standards-based report cards are coordinated through this department. We work closely with the schools' Site Literacy Teachers and the District's Instructional Technology team who provide ongoing support, training, and intervention for their respective students and staff.
The IS staff coordinates state testing including ordering, monitoring, collecting, and disaggregating the data. Along with state testing data, we provide support to site Leadership Teams in the development of their Single Plans for Student Achievement, their annual goals tied to the District Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The IS department promotes our District's focus on the philosophy of No Excuses University and the development of the six exceptional systems at each site (culture of universal achievement, collaboration, standards alignment, assessment plan, data management, and interventions) and also a college-going culture.
Our department also leads the District through the textbook adoption process. We work diligently over the course of a year to provide opportunities for teacher input and piloting in order to select the very best textbooks and instructional resources possible for our district. We encourage parents to participate in the textbook selection process. We truly desire to be partners in education, be available to answer questions, and help our students receive the best, well-rounded education available.
