Welcome to the Curriculum, Instruction, & Assessment Department

Our department’s mission is to provide leadership and support for CVUSD staff and parents by coordinating the development, alignment, and implementation of standards, curriculum, instruction, professional learning, assessments and support services to ensure each student meets or exceed proficiency and is ready for college, university and careers. Our district offers a rigorous curriculum to meet the needs of and challenge our students.

Our department supports our K-12 schools to implement research-based curriculum aligned to the California State Content Standards, coordinates instructional materials adoptions and resources, and provides research-based professional development for teachers and administrators to ensure that they receive the necessary support to effectively address the needs of our diverse student population. We also oversee and direct many of the annual assessment and accountability activities, such as the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) system, Physical Fitness Test (PFT), Advanced Placement exams (AP), and the School Accountability Report Cards (SARC), among others.

Instructional Technology and Internet Safety

The Instructional Technology and Internet Safety page is a resource for school leaders and teachers to let them know what software, websites, apps and other technology solutions are available and have been reviewed by district departments. It also informs school leaders and teachers about which solutions are supported and recommended and to what level. School leaders and teachers are encouraged to consult this menu whenever they are considering academic technology tools. It will help you find applications that you may not know about and it will give you information about tools that you are considering.
