The Val Verde Unified School District has adopted the California State Content standards as its curriculum, selected and purchased state adopted instructional materials in the core instructional areas, trained all teachers and administrators to fully and effectively implement the instructional materials (the majority of the elementary principals have completed AB75 training, and teachers at several sites have completed SB472 training), built the capacity of administrators and teachers to use data to drive instruction and make informed decisions concerning curriculum and instruction, and developed student monitoring systems in order to track and monitor your students’ progress toward meeting grade level standards. In addition, the District has identified trimester (TK-5) and quarterly (6-12) focus standards in order to guide instruction throughout the year and we have developed performance assessments to help inform instruction.
