• Instructional Support and Services Team (ISST)

    The Instructional Support and Services Team (ISST) encompasses many areas in the district and is separated in two areas on our website: Curriculum and Instruction and Student Services.  This department includes support personnel for staff and parents with curriculum, instruction, professional development, technology, homelessness, private schools and all special services provided to students.  Additionally, the ISST department implements all federal grants (Title I, IIa, III, IDEA) and any state grants received. This team’s guiding purpose is to provide the highest professional support to families, schools, teachers and students to increase personal success and academic achievement.
