Teaching, Learning, & Assessment

Department of Teaching, Learning & Assessment

The work of the Teaching, Learning & Assessment Department is directed by the district’s mission: “To prepare, inspire, and empower students to become life-long learners and socially responsible citizens.” 

The TLA team provides district leadership that supports the development, implementation, and evaluation of rigorous, relevant academic programs.  

Our goal is to provide a guaranteed, viable curriculum which meets the diverse needs of all students while preparing them for postsecondary success. The department analyzes and reports the accountability results of our schools’ TNReady assessments, directs curriculum alignment and pacing, and supports schools with data interpretation.

The team also provides professional development opportunities throughout the year for teachers and administrators that include examining existing curriculum, lesson design, content alignment, research-based instructional methods, and school improvement strategies.
