  • Office of Teaching and Learning

    The Office of Teaching and Learning will ensure that all educators provide rigorous, authentic, and personalized experiences for all students, particularly our historically underserved populations.

    The Successful Schools Framework, pictured below, outlines the five essential practices all schools must employ in order to advance the achievement of every child. The primary function of the Office of Teaching and Learning is to facilitate the adoption and expansion of these practices in every school and every classroom.
