The curriculum department is committed to successfully educating all students. The department provides and supports a rigorous, inclusive, and student-centered curriculum that aligns with the California Department of Education Frameworks and Standards foundation.

The Supervisor of Curriculum and CSDR's Curriculum Specialists select curricula, monitor and evaluate student performance data and assessments, mentor and provide professional development for teachers, lead new textbook adoptions, implement educational technology in the classrooms and keep the Superintendent, Principals and Director of Instruction abreast on these issues.

Our specialists also collaborate with our skilled instructional staff to adapt, modify and tailor educational materials to meet the needs of all our Deaf/Hard of Hearing student’s Individual Educational Programs. As a result, a wide variety of learning experiences, instructional practices and academic support are employed to engage students as active, mindful learners who are prepared for college or their future career.

Strategic Plan:

  • Review, implement and facilitate CSDR's Strategic Plan


  • Ensure that Common Core State Standards are implemented and modified to meet the diverse linguistic and learning needs of all students
  • Assist in the development of curriculum goals
  • Guide the selection of textbooks and other instructional materials, per State of California recommendations
  • Manage the ordering of textbooks and supplemental materials
  • Conduct curriculum reviews
  • Provide professional development, training and workshops related to specific content areas


  • Provide resources and information
  • Provide professional development opportunities related to instructional strategies, techniques and methods
