Teaching & Learning Services


The Teaching & Learning Department supports all schools in the Deer Park School District the areas of curriculum, assessment, instruction, testing, and research around best practice.

The Teaching & Learning Department is responsible for materials review and adoption, assessment, program evaluation, and teacher evaluation. This department seeks to work collaboratively with teachers, administrators and staff within the district to support student learning and meet building goals and the Deer Park School District’s Priorities for Progress.┬áThe work of Deer Park’s central office administrators is primarily in providing necessary help and leadership in the selection of core instructional materials, ensuring chosen materials align with state/national standards, building professional learning programs for teachers, helping administer district-wide/state assessments, as well as addressing parent questions and concerns about materials.

The department is committed to ongoing collaboration with buildings to provide relevant, engaging, and purposeful professional growth experiences with high-quality resources to ensure success for all students.
