The mission of RUSD’s Education Services Department is to provide research based leadership and support for the District’s Instructional Focus:
All students construct learning through relevant and rigorous tasks that demonstrate standards based speaking, reading, writing, creating and problem solving.
Education Services is committed to providing professional development, coaching, and instructional resources to help support teachers in all faucets of education. Throughout the teacher resource pages, you will discover well-vetted websites and materials that will help create rigorous learning experiences for your students.
If you have any resources you would like to share with the district, please email our office with your recommendations. The more tools we have in our toolbox the better, and two heads are always better than one.
