Instructional Services (Curriculum)

Instructional Services Department Overview:

The Cedar Rapids Community School District provides students with a world class educational experience, and a high quality, rigorous curriculum is key to building that strong foundation for student success. At the district level, the instructional services leadership team ensures curriculum is well aligned and connected vertically and across content areas.   

The Instructional Services Department works alongside classroom teachers to provide content, instruction, and assessment aligned to state and national standards in a wide variety of educational options and settings. We also work alongside the Professional Learning Department to ensure professional learning opportunities for our teachers are based on state and national standards, student achievement data, and current best practice research.
