Curriculum & Instruction
Welcome to the United ISD Department for Curriculum and Instruction website. The department is organized into five instructional branches: Elementary Education, Secondary Education, Special Education, Instructional Accountability and Campus Intervention. Each branch is led by an Executive Director. Together the instructional team guides and empowers all instructional directors, coordinators, and support staff ensuring effective, efficient, instructional support to all UISD campuses.
In February 2012, I assumed the role of the Associate Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction at United ISD. The focus will continue to be to ensure that the department carries on its established commitment to the continuous improvement of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) based, learner centered, aligned scope and sequence for all core areas. Our commitment to this focus will assure that the district’s educational objectives are aligned to the state framework and to instructional practices that provide the highest standards of student achievement and instructional excellence. All teachers are expected to adhere to the scope and sequence as a means of ensuring a comprehensive sequential delivery of instruction throughout UISD.
With the approaching changes in the state accountability system and the implementation of the State Assessments of Academic Skills (STAAR) and the End of Course (EOC), revised goals, objectives, and priorities have been established to meet the targets and goals that will soon be announced by the state. However, the department has a strong foundation and commitment on which to build. Thus, the instructional team will continue to provide the curricular leadership that creates, implements, maintains, and enhances excellence, creativity, and achievement; while concurrently providing effective, efficient, instructional support to all forty UISD campuses. This dedication extends to our teachers, parents, and students to support quality teaching and learning in order to achieve academic success for every student. This responsibility is a UNITED effort for our successes and challenges. We are confident that through outstanding campus leadership and the delivery of quality instruction from all teachers, United ISD will maintain its history of academic excellence.
